Typical Chilis

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.
