Seated fast.. Waitress showed up 15 minutes later.. We sat between two tables that were never cleaned the whole time we were there.. Flies were horrible and swarming the tables around us ..food was mediocre .. Just not pleasant visit.

The last time we cam here was the same issue. Gave them a second chance and it didn't amaze me one bit. The service was awful, the food came out cold even with the plates steaming hot. Tickets were wrong, and the MGR didn't know crap. Last time...

Food is served hot. Service is good in slower periods. When it gets packed, service can suffer as kitchen does not keep up well. Most of the dishes are quite tasty and well prepared. Prices are fair. Probably is the best restaurant in Ruston. Worth a visit.

Service and food is sporadic. Sometimes great other times awful. We had several different things. Guacamole was good but small, chips and salsa were good. The ribs were great but the Mexican plate was cold and warmed over. Usually it is much better. There were several in our group and their food ranged from average to great. It took forever... More

Unfortunately, this place is consistently bad. We have given the place a few opportunities and only one time out of four would I say it was a good experience. Portions are often lacking and food is sub par and just overall seems poorly run. As an example, a recent and likely last trip in the place unless something changes, went... More

They apologized and gave it to me in a box but... More

My family and I have eaten an Chili's in several other places, it usually is pretty good service and food. My daughter and I were running errands and I needed to get back to work an hour away. We stopped at Chili's at about 11:20 AM, we figured with it being that early, we could get out pretty quick. We... More

I've been here many times because Ruston doesn't have that many options, and NORMALLY you get at least average service. However, the Chili's in Ruston is ALWAYS ALWAYS at least 45 minutes from when you order to when you receive your food. Doesn't matter if you are getting nachos or hamburgers or SALAD. And if you order chips and salsa... More

I ordered pork and chicken fajitas. The chicken was cooked to perfection but the pork was dry and part of it was burned -- not blackened, just burned. I had a slight stomach ache walking out. Lesson: just order one meat, I guess. It was the 4th of July so I am giving them a pass on the fact that... More

Chili's opened quite a while ago, but we've never gotten around to trying it out until recently. We have no plans to return. The best part of the review would be the waitress, who was pleasant, cheerful, and efficient. Unfortunately, the food was underwhelming. Portion sizes were rather small although pricing isn't proportionate. The small size wasn't all that bad,... More
