I had 1 bad experience with Chili's a long time ago. I was very hesitant. I went into Chili's to give them another chance and wow. I was so impressed. Have gone back several times since. No matter what I order, it is cooked to my specifications and done correctly. The waitstaff is amazing. Their chips and salsa are wonderful.... More

I had a better experience at a different Chilis location. My waiter, Arthur is very rude and very slow. As I was given my food and this Chilis is one of the worst Chilis experience I had. The pasta was hard and I waited about 15 minutes just to get my order in. Our waiter did not even dare to... More

Just stopping in Portland for the day and popped in during mid afternoon with my two youngest daughters (13 & 11) who have never been to a chili's before. We are from Canada so not typical fare for us, but I always try to make a stop while in the US. Sooo...mid afternoon, restaurant had a dozen or so tables... More

Since this was walking distance from the hotel, we walked over there to grab some more drinks! The waitress and waiter both nights were great and accommodating (even the 2nd night when I insisted me and the waiter were BFFs). We just grabbed drinks so you really can't mess that up. The first night my boyfriend got chips and salsa... More

In Portland area for overnight business. Tried the Chili's for the first time. Very impressed. Had the steak special. Done exactly the way I ordered it med rare. Wing apps were good also. Would recommend to any of my road warrior travelers to stop in for a bite to eat. Not your typical chain restaurant experience.

Ok food but very noisy and the waitstaff seemed distracted. There was a full restuarant so it was very busy.

This restaurant is located in the parking lot of the Days Inn motel. It is very convenient for those staying there as they can just walk out of the motel and right inside. We had excellent customer service both evenings which as everyone knows is hard to come by these days a lot of the time. They food was your... More

When your traveling you sometimes need to sit and catch a break. This worked out for us. Back on the road in 45 minutes for the... More
