“Great food, nice stmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2013

Chili's Grill is a definite place to eat. The food is tasty, prepared hot and the way you like it. They offer a nice menu to select from. The burgers are big and the salads are nicely garnished. The staff is friendly and the service is great!

“horrible wait and food”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2013

food came to the table after we waited over an hour for a table and was just your average stuff. Most of the meat dishes were dry and the kids wouldn't even finish the kids meals. They said the french fries were horrible and they were right. They had so much black pepper on them the kids wouldn't even eat them.

“Big lines for bad food and fair service”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2013

Where to start...ribs; if there was meat holding these ribs together you would need a magnifying glass to find it, What meat was there was charred until crunchy. Served with veggies, the veggies were cold and the butter asked for never arrived. Three out of four had a problem with the quality of their meals. Avoid this place, there is nothing to recommend it.

“Heartburn Served Your Way For Under $20.00”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2012

I know what good food is and what good food isn't.This place gets my award for most likely to give you acid reflux for under $12.00.I was forced to go there due to the wishes of my friends.I always give into friends so Chili's here I come.The place is on a great pad site on Route 9 North,next to Freehold Raceway.The place was packed there was even a small wait.I tired the 3 appetizer for $10.00 and the appetizers would not have been fit food for a homeless shelter.The so called "Philadelphia Cheese Steak" has steak sliced so thin a doctor could of used it for a skin graft for burn victims.In addition the bread it came in was sliced so as to look like the whole so called Cheese steak was packed with tasty beef.The truth is the one slice of pseudo steak was bunched up at the top and the rest of the so called Cheese Steak was bread,some onions and something that resembled Velveeta Cheese.The sandwich should of been better named grease salt and bread sliders.
Next was the so called Spinach dip with chips.The was an ample pile of chips with about 4 tablespoons of dip.The dip had a few undefinable huge vegetables in it and so after 4 dips with the chips all the dip was gone and i was left with a basket of chips.The last choice was something that resembled McDonald's chicken bites,but McDonald's was better.The dip had the consistency of mushroom soup and was flavorless.It is now 4Am and I have eaten my seventh Tums.Do yourself a favor and give Chili's a Chilly reception when it comes to food choices.In other words go elsewhere!!
