Excellent customer service in the face of difficult circumstances

Traveling through the area from a family event & Michigan City is the halfway point. Stopped at Chili's because it is a known entity & we were looking for something quick & good for lunch. Waitress (whose name I cannot remember - blond, wavy hair, young lady) was very pleasant & very prompt - we... read more

Great place for lunch or dinner and I always have to order the bottomless chips and salsa! They are delicious and with a side order of ranch, awesome! Chili's has always had great salads and sandwiches. It has a bar if you would rather go there instead of family dining. The Michigan City Chili's has friendly servers, good food and... More

We were in the area and couldn't agree on anything to eat, so we ended up here at Chili's somehow. We were a bit concerned that the parking lot was relatively empty at 6pm, but we decided to push through our initial concerns. The experience turned out to be ok. It started with some slow service, but the waitress seemed... More

Typical Chili's...good food, good service, good atmosphere. Love this chain of restaurants. Margarita grilled chicken, chips and guacamole, and chipotle flatbread... Always a good combination. Recommended.

Stopped for early dinner. We sat in the bar area and Chris was our server. He has served us before and we always ask for him. There are no surprises with his service. The food was good. I had a rib eye that was tender and cooked to order. My wife had some kind of Mexican platter. She said it... More

Great Atmosphere, good food, and a wonderful host. Plenty of parking and well lit in the evening. Close to major shopping.

The food barely met expectations, the service was pretty slow, and the restaurant was dirty. Pretty bad experience overall.

When we were seated at a booth, immediately found one dead bug and two other flying around. I killed both of them and after dinner I found one more, SICK!

Stopped by here on our road trip to Chicago. It was a random choice and we have never been here before. We just saw the red chili pepper and that caught our attention. Thank goodness it was a good choice! The food was absolutely delicious and our waitress was really friendly! It was then that I found out they have... More

First visit to a chilis as I have learned to avoid most chains for business travel since I get tired of the repitition, I was pleasantly suprised by the great service and menu selection, loved the new appetizers too.
