I wanted grilled chicken with beans and rice. Don't know if I was missing it in the menu or if they have removed it from the menu. When I described to waiter he was easily able to get the plate of chicken with beans and rice that I wanted.

Lunch was delicious; smaller portions of the dinner menu items. Food was cooked perfectly; medium with the steak was perfect for a thin line of pink.

This is by far the worst Chili's meal I've ever had. While traveling, we decided to get a to go order for dinner. My husband and I both had baby back ribs.

Excellent place to eat and drink and enjoy the updated sports event on Cable TV. I would recommend anyone passing through for a wind down moment to check out the restaurant.

Food as always, skillet queso was quick and tasty, fajitas were great too - server was just plain odd and a bit overbearing, kind of offputting ! Rob

First, their "frozen" drinks are the consistency of a slush and darn near impossible to sip from a straw. Next, they over serve alcohol and their patrons get overly loud and rowdy. Last, it is not uncommon to get cold or undercooked food. Save your money. If you want low quality food for half the cost, find a McDonald's. You... More

Really good food and good service. The food is prepared fresh and has great eye appeal. The service is usually very attentive without complaints on our part.
