“A lower-cost option in this part of town”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 29, 2013

We stopped by this Chilli's two days in a row during our stay at the Marriott Hotel. The first visit was better than the second, although they were much more crowded the first time. The food was just okay on both occasions. Both times, we ordered a flat bread appetizer, probably the tastiest thing we ordered. The first time it came in a rectangle shape, but the second time, not only did it take forever to arrive at the table, it came with a piece missing, so we had to send it back.

We were in a hurry to find a place to eat both days and other restaurants in the area were a lot more expensive. Chilli's has decent food at reasonable prices, so if that's what your looking for, it's a good option in this area of Philly.

“Great reliable chain for a solid bite to eat”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

I work at the court house so every once in a while I treat myself to a sit down lunch and this place is great. Not too loud, service is fast and made to order even with special requests. They get you in and out! Don't be scared by any lines or wait goes way quicker than they tell you!

“Conveniently located near two Marriott hotels”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2013

We eat at Chili's in our hometown fairly regularly so have a certain expectation. The fajita portion seemed smaller than usual, within a disproportionate amount of onions and no peppers (which we usually get). The mandarin oranges served as a side dish with the kid's meal were fermented. We had a hard time getting our waiter's attention but once he came, the oranges were replaced with a small bowl of rice. We really enjoy the molten lava cake and finished off our meal by sharing one!
Our server did charge us for a drink we didn't order so double-check your bill before paying!

“Good Food and Service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

We went for dinner after a 9 hour car ride. We were all hungry and wanted something quick. We were very pleased that we were served quickly. The food was hot and appealing. The server was very attentive.
