My wife and I haven't been to a Chili's in years. This used to be a staple of our 'after church' eating on Sundays. I could have probably had their menu memorized. We returned a few months ago and boy was I disappointed. The only thing I enjoyed was my chips (that actually stuffed me up because we waited for our food too long.)
I ordered the shrimp taco's and was very unhappy. The cabbage in the taco smelled bad like its been going bad. The flour soft taco was soggy because of the juices were not drained before being put on the tacos.....or they let them sit too long.
I remember two things that have clearly changed. We used to order the con queso and it used to be really good....now it appears to be either pre packaged, not fresh or very poor ingredients because it is not the same. Then there used to be a 'chocolate paradise brownie' that was brought in a heated skillet with melted sugars and syrup...no longer exists or is the same....yuck.
I question....maybe you can help. Has the food industry changed so much that others are doing better and these chains have literaly become as bad as a fast food restaurant? Or have they just totally dropped the ball and become that bad?!?
