Don't let the photograph on the wall of the indigenous Central American woman making tortillas fool you; Chili's offers anything but authentic Latin food.
This Chili's was super convenient to the hotel where I was attending a conference--the Crowne Plaza Timonium, and it seemed even more convenient for the guests staying in the hotel attached to the restaurant--the Holiday Inn. The entrance to the restaurant/hotel is confusing. You must access the parking lot through Deereco Road; otherwise you will end up making several U-turns or, worse, getting lost.
The food at this particular Chili's was standard, typical. I was not particularly impressed with the Skillet Queso (too runny), but the chips and salsa were tasty. I ordered the boneless buffalo wings--my favorite Chili's dish--afterward, and for some reason I was disappointed this time around. Perhaps it was the size of the wings; perhaps it was the lack of sauce on the wings; or perhaps it was even the texture of the chicken (some portions were too chewy...). Whatever the case, my memory of the dish was better than the actual experience. The beverage I ordered was the positive element of my dining experience. You cannot beat Chili's bottomless flavored ice teas. I had the Blackberry Tea this time around, and it was excellent! What made it especially awesome was the frequency with which it was replaced; the server came by nearly every five minutes to offer me a brand new glass!
So yes, the service was something to cheer about. Our server was attentive and friendly. The weird thing was that she kept referring to her apprentice server, but we never met that person. She even signed her name on the receipt... Huh.
