I live very near this Chili's & have lunch or dinner there a couple times a month. After many complaints regarding service, management was changed & service has improved greatly. Menu is typical Chili's fare & not where locals go for real Mexican food. Good for salads & sandwiches/burgers. Full bar available too.

My family and I dined for lunch on a weekday, and although the restaurant was almost empty, it took almost one hour to receive our food. I wish it had been worth the wait, but it was not. There were several issues with the food, and speaking to the manager only made things worse. Our chicken fajitas were not cooked.... More

The food, typical Chili's Tex-Mex food... But... There were lots of empty tables on a Saturday night at 7:30 (should have been our first clue) and we still waited almost 20-minutes to be seated. The wait person took our order 5-minutes later. 15-minutes later our water and tea arrived... 10-minutes after that, my margarita... Our food, an appetizer, finall arrived... More

Finally got to our table to be ignored for another 15mins. Talked to the manager and blew up off. We got up and... More

We went in before the late night rush. Our server could not remember what we asked for and no she didn't bother to write it down. Our order was simple, mac & Cheese, pizza with cheese, and steak and ribs. One hour later we were still sitting there waiting for food. Not only was the service horrible, no apology to... More

It had been a few months since I last visited this particular Chili's. The bartender (AA male) is very slow and not friendly at all. Turns out ordering from the bar is a bad idea. It almost like you become an invisible patron. Now, the food quality and value for the money is excellent. My suggestion is to dine-in and... More
