You can get this quality of food in a lot of places for not much money. It was truly blah as far as I was concerned. If you want Mexican food, find a place with more imagination and zest.

Chili's never disappoints. We ordered the classic nachos combo, quesadilla salad and chicken enchiladas. All the food was very tasty and there was plenty of it. Our server, Esada, was very efficient and very personable.

We ate here for supper since it was Saturday night and all the steak houses were full. The food was good and the service was O.K. Great if you are wanting a decent meal at a good price and don't want to wait forever.

We travel to the US a lot and used to really enjoy Chili's - on our last trip we had a really bad experience which made us reluctant to go there again but so glad that we did. This Chili's is clean, well staffed - we had a great server in Caden and the food was incredibly fresh, well cooked... More

Came for dinner as it was within walking distance of hotel. Food and service was great. Menu was large so it was hard to decide, but our waiter did a good job recommending what was good.

Clean, friendly staff, warm, with awesome sour cream sauce chicken and beef enchiladas! Need I say more? Service was fairly fast once I got seated. Very family friendly, also has a bar area and many TV screens. And they had a group of 32 who dined there just before I came on this Sunday, if they can handle that, they... More

We were traveling to Minnesota and got caught in a snow storm. Chilis was by our hotel. We were not overly hungry so we split the chicken bacon quesadillas. They brought out 2 pates (split) both had beans, dip, rice! Such a nice presentation food was excellent. Highly recommend.

Great service and we were well taken care of for a large party. We were given a corner table which was ideal with children.
