Consistently the slowest service possible.

I've been here many times because Ruston doesn't have that many options, and NORMALLY you get at least average service. However, the Chili's in Ruston is ALWAYS ALWAYS at least 45 minutes from when you order to when you receive your food. Doesn't matter if you are getting nachos or hamburgers or... read more

I ordered pork and chicken fajitas. The chicken was cooked to perfection but the pork was dry and part of it was burned -- not blackened, just burned. I had a slight stomach ache walking out. Lesson: just order one meat, I guess. It was the 4th of July so I am giving them a pass on the fact that... More

Chili's opened quite a while ago, but we've never gotten around to trying it out until recently. We have no plans to return. The best part of the review would be the waitress, who was pleasant, cheerful, and efficient. Unfortunately, the food was underwhelming. Portion sizes were rather small although pricing isn't proportionate. The small size wasn't all that bad,... More

The help staff was wonderful, but my food was cold and burnt. I got it to go and by the time I returned to hotel only minutes away, it was cold. I couldn't eat it.

Portions were a little small for the price. I don't mind paying for a good meal, but this was mediocre at best. Clean restaurant. Service was fairly good.

We had not been to Chili's in quite a while, so thought we would try it. I was very disappointed in the quality of food. The bathroom and kitchen were very dirty, the food was not good in fact gave me a stomach ache. The broccoli I ordered was spoiled in a few places, potatoes were not hot, and chips... More

I have eaten at other Chili's in the past and enjoyed the food and atmosphere. My recent visit to the Ruston location had multiple issues. It started off fine with the waitress taking our drink and appetizer order. Chips were good, but my daughter wouldn't touch the chili con queso that was more chili than cheese and a dog food...

Went to eat here on a Saturday night and was able to get seated easily and get our orders fast. Food tasted good as usual and the restaurant was about the same in appearance as it has been before. My only problem was my server. He had some friends sitting across from us and it appeared he was having trouble... More

While we enjoy eating at the Chili's down the road in West Monroe quite often this one fails in comparison. We have experienced slow service here before and decided to take our chances after an event at LA Tech on a Wednesday night. We were immediately seated at a booth near the bar and told "someone will be right with... More
