My bride and I travel extensively and we try to eat at recognized chain restaurants when possible because I have a food allergy and we try to stick to what we know.

We haven't been to Chili's for awhile so we thought we'd give it another try. Bad decision on our part. The food is always just what you'd expect but the service is always awful! There were 3 of us there around 5:15pm and we couldn't get out of there until almost 7:00pm. For some reason it takes almost as much... More

Not my favorite place, but the best place for my girlfriends and I to take our large group on this side of town.

Chili's has great food and an awesome atmosphere. Can't go wrong dining on 2 for 20.00. The waitress was very attentive and sweet. The place was clean. If there is a wait you can always sit in the bar area and get free chips and salsa. Don't forget to sign up for their reward system so you can get free... More

We stopped there for dinner and it was packed. They were able to get us seated very quickly and the food and drinks were excellent.

It was a while since I visited Chili's, so i decided with my family to stop and give it a try at this location. Let me tell you! I order the char-crusted sirloin and it was divine! a little overcooked for my taste, by other than that the presentation and the taste was really good. Servers were kind and prompt... More
