Just an average outing.

Service slow - food was okay - fairly clean atmosphere - seated promptly - family friendly - orders not exact.

The past several times I have been to the Chili's in East Peoria, IL, the service has been really slow and unattentive and the food--while the menu has some really good items--is just not prepared well. Combined with the poor service, I am hard pressed to spend my dining dollars here.

Oh, wow. What a disappointment! This used to be a regular hangout when I lived in Peoria. The place was filthy, the food wasn't good, and the service wasn't great either. And the bill for two of us was almost $60! :o The only reason we ended up here was because my dining companion was a pain in the butt.... More

The food is fresh, the service great and the food is seasoned just right! We have never had a bad meal at Chili's. It is gluten free friendly and they are very willing to help you in this manner.

We had not visited Chili's for quite some time. Our overall experience was good. Our waitress was attentive and always checking for refills on chips and beverages. The food was served in a fair amount of time. It came out hot, fresh and plentiful. We will return again to this location.

My mom and I always thought Chilis was a great restaurant. One day we were at the hair salon and they brought up Chilis, the hair dresser said that there are bugs and careless workers. We disagreed because our service has always been good. Today we decided to go here because Texas Roadhouse was packed, well the appetizer was good.... More

This is one of our go-to restaurants. We enjoyed our food, we all had burgers of one sort or another, the service was a bit slow but we were not in a hurry so it was ok.

We've enjoyed countless delicious meals at the Chili's in Peoria, but last night was a rare disappointment. Using a gift card from Christmas, we were looking forward to a great meal on a cold winter night. Our food arrived quickly, but in retrospect, i wish they would have taken more time to get it right. The first bacon cheeseburgers that... More

You cant go wrong here. Always bring my crew here when im working in Peoria.The burgers, ribs, and fajitas are great.I have been here dozens of times and never had a complaint.Can be hard to find a parking spot but that just shows how popular they are.
