Service was good but food has gone downhill

We stopped at our local Chili's Sunday afternoon. One order was soup and an enchilada dish and another was a chicken tostado and hard beef taco. Used to love their chicken enchilada soup. Both soups were bland and the broth of the SW enchilada soup looked at tasted like it was bulked up with... read more

We don't go out a ton to eat in the Summer, but decided to venture off to Chili's in McKinney after we went to the Dallas Comic-Con earlier in the day. Om: For a large chain, I've always found Chili's to serve pretty good food, maybe some of the best compared to similar places? I really think it's great that... More

Service has not been great but I continued giving this location a try. I have not been in awhile so we went today. They were busy and wait time was not too bad. Once seated, I noticed the table not clean and as I ribbed with a napkin black stuff stuck to napkin. I tried to ignore and move on.... More

Tried the Sour Cream Chicken Enchiladas filled with seasoned chicken & Monterey Jack cheese. Topped with melted 3-cheese blend, chopped cilantro & house-made corn & black bean salsa. Served with rice & black beans and was pleasantly surprised. It was really good. I also had the Crispy Chicken Tacos stuffed with crispy chicken, applewood smoked bacon, diced tomatoes & 3-cheese...

The food was on par with all chilies that I have been too. The atmosphere was the same as all Chili's. The service was a little below-average but they were friendly

Our waitress was very inattentive to our table, to the point she would avoid eye contact when she had to pass the table to go to kitchen. My nephew ordered chicken crispers, which comes with corn on the cob & French fries. When his plate came out there were no fries. The waitress said they were cooking them. After many... More

It's Chili's. The new chicken sandwich with pretzel bun, fantastic! Add a cold one and you can't go wrong for a quick meal.

I don't really know how new their menu actually is because I haven't been there in a while, I ordered a Bacon Avocado Chicken sandwich, the one on a pretzel bun. I love avocado so I was very excited to see this. We had some appetizers which I loved and the chips and salsa is always the best! The order... More

For our local Chilis to be so bad at service is such a disappointment. We really want to like the place but will be traveling to Allen in the future. Waitresses seem to walk around in a daze never serving or seeing you.

Impressed with their new menu for the Calorie Counting Conscious people! The wait staff is cheerful & prompt. The food is hot & fresh. I recommend them if you want a fast "chain" food place with good food.
