This is your typical chain, the food's about the same no matter which one you go in. The service was ok. The waiter didn't write down order, salads were forgotten, change requests were also forgotten. But over all the food was ok.

Enjoyed the food and the atmosphere. Had quick service. Did have to ask for a side substitution on my meal that has always been acceptable before, but the waiter seemed to take issue with it this time. After checking, the waiter agreed to the substitution.

We have been going to Chili's for several years on a regular basis but 2 weeks ago we have a horrible experience at the Chili's in Portage,Mi. We ordered a salad that we have ordered many times and it did not have any dressing on it. We didn't see our waitress so we asked what looked like the manager. He... More

I ordered the chicken fajitas, without the garlic butter and cilantro, which changes the taste drastically. The chicken was not too bad, but it sure did not have the texture of chicken, and had a different taste.

This is a great place to go to sit and enjoy a family night out for dinner. Chili's now offers iPods on each table to keep the children entertained.

This is very much like the other mid range chains like Applebees, Olive Garder, TGI Fridays, etc. They have some different dishes and the food is quite good but nothing exceptional.

I was in the area on business and stopped at this chili' because I saved enough points for a free appetizer. After I sat down and mentioned I wanted to use my reward points for an appetizer my server laughed at me and said they don't participate in the reward program. You wouldn't know this unless you asked because they... More

Dirty silverware, slow service and no drink refills in sight! Definitely not like the Chili's around here. The tacos that I ordered were stuck to the paper that they were placed down inside and brought to the table in. I ended up not even finishing them. Definitely not worth the time and hassle. The waitress was unhappy that I had... More

I have always loved the food but awhile we quit going specifically because of the service we were getting. The last 4 times we have gone, our service has been great!

Was in Kalamazoo for a visit and decided to order a quick dinner from Chili's via their online order system. Simple. Placed the order at 6:45 PM and received an email confirmation that my order would be ready at 7:16 PM. I arrived at the location at 7:20 PM and the sign at the "Chilis To Go" desk said that...
