“Dont' usually visit but I actually went back for the same thing”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 16, 2012

Pricey bar food, but the last few times I went, it wasn't bad. I had this really good buffalo salad on the last 2 visits and it was really good.

“CHANGE isn't always for the good”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2012

There was a time when Chili's had the best burger in the casual dining segment - hands down. No longer. In the interest of progress and efficiency, Chili's no longer "grills" their burgers. They're now done on a conveyer belt, as is much of their food. And now, it's at the lower end of the "just another burger" chart.

“Ups and downs”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2012

We used to be able to count on Chilis for "the best" - not so much anymore. You pay your money, take your chances. Last visit to Chili's on Hwy 92, Lakeland/Auburndale, disappointing. Food and service a bit lacking. Last visit to Chili's on 98 North in Lakeland, was some better - we'd had bad experience, they had sent us gift certificates to make up for it, we tried again, they tried harder - ribs not as "good as used to be" but better, steak not bad if can get them to leave off all that extra spicing stuff. We'll give it awhile and try again at the Hwy 98 location.
