I came here to get carry out for a business lunch. The first thing that hit me was the odor when I walked it. It smelled very sour. The salad cost $14 without meat and was very, very small. Chicken flatbread was also ordered and it was very overdone. Did I say it was chicken?!? There was not much chicken... More

This is always a good experience when you want a good variety of menus choices at a reasonable price. Their current $6 cheeseburger with unlimited fries is a real bargain. Good service and a clean, friendly environment.

Between softball games, our granddaughter & teammate decided that Chili's sounded good. We were a group of about 20 ranging in age from 4 yrs old to senior citizens. They quickly set us up in a windowed side area which was perfect. Our waitress was efficient & patient as families were mixed up. Matching groups was a challenge; she handled... More

No Tamales, but great burgers, ribs, and just about anything on the menu is top notch. Never had a bad meal there. Fine service and it is clean.

This is a good restaurant for casual lunch, supper or dinner. Their burgers are pretty good. Although, you have to specify (and make sure) that they cook them the way you like it. French fries are pretty tasty, too. Everything is traditionally accompanied with cheese, pickles (very good!) ,etc. The service depends ... if they are busy or not. And... More

Our family was driving home from a weekend away. Both kids were starving and cranky. We knew we'd be driving through Peoria around dinner time. We used the NoWait app to virtually "get in line" for our table. When we arrived --- on a busy Saturday night --- we waited 3 minutes for our table! What a great way to... More

We eat at this location often. The food and service is excellent. Lot's of free parking this is a very busy spot but they seat you quickly based on availability. The service is great and there are managers always walking around "selectively" asking "how is everything" but they "never asked us" in all the years we've patronized!!

The past several times I have been to the Chili's in East Peoria, IL, the service has been really slow and unattentive and the food--while the menu has some really good items--is just not prepared well. Combined with the poor service, I am hard pressed to spend my dining dollars here.

Oh, wow. What a disappointment! This used to be a regular hangout when I lived in Peoria. The place was filthy, the food wasn't good, and the service wasn't great either. And the bill for two of us was almost $60! :o The only reason we ended up here was because my dining companion was a pain in the butt.... More

The food is fresh, the service great and the food is seasoned just right! We have never had a bad meal at Chili's. It is gluten free friendly and they are very willing to help you in this manner.
