Good enough

Food is good. But service is really bad. Our waiter told us we should go to 54th St. Grill. OMG if he worked for me, I would have fired him. Wine selections are very poor.

Love eating at Chili's even if it is a large meal. My favorite is their hamburgers and french fries. My husband and I like to eat here when we are out together.

My husband and I like Chili's but it's been a couple of months since we've been there. We decided to eat there a couple of nights ago. I ordered the new Fresh Mex dinner. It was good but not great. Rice was bland, the sour cream enchilada was very good and the taco was fine. There's a seasoning that coated... More

I stopped in for a late night bite. No service greeted, nobody at the bar. I waited for 5 min and saw nobody. Walked out. And.... the place was filthy.
