Although leery due to reviews, tried this place for dinner because lunch for 2 earlier this week featured good food, fast & attentive service and great atmosphere [for a Chili's!] Following a real snafu with an apparently inexperienced greeter/host who tried to seat our party of 4 including a wheelchair bound person at a back table with narrow entry, then...

We went 2 o'clock on a Saturday and it wasn't too busy. The hostess was effective, but less than impressive with her gum chewing and attitude filled saunter. The service was ok. Again, effective, but not excited to be there or see us. The chips came out so greasy and bound together that they were inedible. The food was fine,... More

We visited Chilis today, and based on the experience, probably won't return. The service was slow, the appetizer chips were over cooked and oily, and several entrees were over-cooked to the point that they were inedible. They were not busy at this lunch time, only about half the tables were filled. I brought my over-cooked and inedible entree to the... More

A couple of weeks ago, had date night with my hubby at the Chili's near our new home. We were seated fairly quickly...however that was the highlight of the evening. Sad. We decided to share the fajitas (so one entree) and it took 1 hr to get it to our table. Lots of empty tables. Waitress said short handed. Manager... More

I enjoyed a refreshing summer fruity peach margarita. My date and I shared yummy southwest egg rolls, boneless chicken wings and lightly battered asparagus.

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 know that we will NOT stop at this Chili's in the future. The food was bad, the service was worse, and the experience was less than desired.... More

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

Appetizers arrived with dinner. Waiter offered to put dinner under heat lamp to keep warm, which is not appealing to us. Food was decent.. nothing special. Service left much to me desired. Charged for a dessert we didn't order or receive and waiter second guessed us when we said it wasn't our item. He then blamed it on us by... 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
