Great restaurant for casual dining. The waitress was nice and helpful, but did not know much about food and drinks. Great atmosphere, quiet enough to talk.

The only thing about tonights rib dinner is that they cooked them 3/4 days ago and now reheated them.. It was like eating your 3 day leftover ribs micowaved at home. You all know that taste.

Chili's is pretty standard everywhere you go. These types of restaurants can set themselves apart with their wait staff and the wait staff here are kind and attentive. They seem genuine and that is refreshing.
