“Good food, fair prices, friendly staff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2013

Did dinner a few times May - July 2013 with business associates. Good food, friendly servers, service occasionally slow when busy. May want to call ahead to see if there is a waiting line.

“Great Lunch Service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2013

Great stop in Rancho Cordova off Zinfandel exit off of Hwy 50 just east of Sacto.
Nestled in a new outdoor shopping center, the restaurant shows an updated look, plenty of seating and a staff that appears to know how it works in busy times.
Standard Chili's fare, some good luncheon prices and good service, one thing to say about corporate is they make the standards stick, so sometimes everything being the same is a good thing!
Being solo, it was nice to have a full array of TV's and video to watch in the bar. Raffy at the bar was friendly and had great lunch suggestions and service.
Check it out, as even at peak times, maybe they can make it work when others can't.

“Service Great - Salad Compromise”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2013

We dine at Chili's whenever we have the opportunity. It is economical, food and service great. My dish of choice is the Santa Fe Chicken salad. When I first started ordering it, the bed was all baby greens, with delicious chicken, tomatoes, avocado, and cilantro. Tonight when we had dinner, I noted the bed of the salad was 98% iceberg lettuce, which a bit of a let-down. The dinner was good, but a little disappointing. However, the service at this Chili's is alway impeccable, the management is great, responsive and responsible. Cutting corners on something like lettuce is never the way to go, especially when iceberg causes horrible heartburn.

“It's Chili's”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2013

We were seated to where I looked into the kitchen area ( sink and garbage cans ) great view. The garbage cans was overflowing so the floor was littered. The food came out fast and good. It's Chili's.

“Excellent lunch specials!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2012

My first visit to a Chili's and I was so impressed with their food and their service. Our server Mike was fast, friendly and really provided great customer service. Our food was served hot and was very good. There is plenty of parking at this location. We arrived at lunch time and took advantage of their lunch specials. Generous servings for about $7. The place was extremely busy but that didn't impact the quality of food or the service. They were turning tables quickly but at no time did we feel rushed. I will definitely return to this Chili's and probably check out others in their chain in the future.
