Food was delicious. Service was not good. Got main plate of food and was 3/4 done when my side item finally came. Never got a refill on my drink. Waiter came by as I was paying bill at table.

Really good food and good service. The food is prepared fresh and has great eye appeal. The service is usually very attentive without complaints on our part.

The wait was short. The service at the entrance of the restaurant was pleasant and inviting. The place was quaint and happy. Lots of happy faces...for many reasons. The food was so tasty and the merry was good.

This was a rare occasion when I got out to go out to eat with my husband for lunch because he was some spring break. First of all we waited outside with our pager for 15 minutes while people who came after us went in ahead of us. We thought that might have to do with the available tables but... More

Love Chilli's but not this one. Ordered a steak well done. Specified no pink or blood. Made sure he understood that. Plain potatoes not loaded. Meal came had to ask for straw. Had to ask for silverware. Waiter kept apologizing all around us to other tables for one snafu or another. My steak was bloody. I cut it open... Raw.... More

My husband and I found an unkempt, understaffed and poorly managed restaurant at Chili's (5025 E 42nd St) in Odessa Texas around 915pm on October 8th. My husband ordered a combo soup and salad, but after 15 minutes had passed the waitperson advised that the kitchen had "dumped" all the soups (though the restaurant had another 30-minutes to go before...

This was a business lunch and we needed to have a quick lunch. Yes there was 9 of us but we all ordered easy items that would be quick but it still took some time. Waitress was not very attentive to our needs and when we would ask for drink refills or condiments she acted like it was trouble for... More

I came in on Saturday to eat but was told that it could be 35 minutes. The receptionist gave me a choice of the bar. The experience was better than I expected. The young lady was very nice and prompt to my needs.
