I don't usually rate the chain food establishments, because they often don't vary that much from one town to the next. This one was a little different. The location is good and it is easy to see from the main highway. Parking is adequate. The quality of the food is not that good and the service is somewhat lacking. It... More

Will not eat here again. I don't normally eat at Chili's because I have never been happy with either service or the food. The only Chili's I have ever been the least bit impressed with was in College Station, Texas. The fajita's were Great!! Service was great there too.

There weren't very many restaurants in this area to choose from, so we decided to try Chili's. Never again!! I ordered a black bean veggie burger and my husband had the Santa Fe chicken salad. The veggie burger was terrible and his salad was just ok. I think the waitress knew that I didn't like my burger, so she asked... More

My favorite menu items are their salads, especially the Santa Fe Chicken Salad, the Caribbean Salad and the Quesadilla Explosion Salad. The prices are very reasonable and they offer some great deals like their $20 Dinner for Two which includes an appetizer and two entrees. You just can't beat that! The quality of service depends entirely on the individual serving... More

Service still remains horrible during peak lunch and dinner hours. Better to delay dining until after the crowd has departed. Then the Staff isn't stressed and the kitchen isn't over worked. Obviously, they have more time to get the orders right the first time. They're still striving to improve.

Food and service were poor at best. The facility did not appear to be clean. We were very disappointed with this poorly managed facility. Chili's opened a restaurant in Rockport as well and it went belly up. It was actually better than this restaurant but both were pretty pitiful.

We generally like Chili's (except for the one in Alvin, TX) They are usually clean and predictable and DEPENDABLE. This was no exception. We did the $20 Dinner for Two. Which is an outstanding deal. The service was prompt. The food was well prepared and tasty. The price was right and it was in sight of our hotel!
