“if only they tired harder”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2012

I don't know. The food isn't bad. The service is rushed and careless. Sometimes it's good and sometimes it's just okay. You feel rushed and for sure the waiters are fake in their attitudes. You feel like the waiters would rather be someplace else--like partying. I have had good food here and food that was just okay. It's a chain and they don't feel they have to do too much with what they are serving. It's just what's there on the menu. It's a nice place but they want volume and lots of table turned and nothing more. I have been to other Chili's there were fun, but this one is a morgue. It's a bit dreary. The food one day can be good and one day it looks like they got it out of the garbage pail. It can be sloppy looking on the plate. There's no quality control and no feeling that they care about what they are doing. I've been here many times. It is just average at its best. It will survive and they know it because no one will tell them to shape up. Average is where they want to be.

“Same food as any other Chili's, but amazingly bad service”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 5, 2012

Same good burgers, tacos, ribs and so forth as you get at every other Chili's, but even when the management changes occasionally the service remains amazingly inattentive. They are evidently trained that their job is to chat with one another and to look around for customers in need only when they run out of things to gossip and complain about. Great location though.

“Just another Chili's”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 31, 2009

Chili's is always a place to go if you cant' find anything else. It is a place where you know you will find something on the menu to satisfy your food cravings but I just don't like it. It's nothing over the top. Things never change or seem that interesting. I do like their Jamacian Paradise drink. Their bar is pretty good.

“Don't waste your time at this location....”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2009

I have eaten at Chili's in many different states and find them very appetizing. Unfortunately this was not one of them. I ordered fajitas and in other Chili's locations they are wonderful, but here they were very bland. Also the bartender was not attentive at all. I had to ask for every drink and also had to ask if I could order food. I would only eat at this location if it was a last resort.
