We were staying at a nearby hotel and wanted a take out location. Chili's fit the bill with convenient on line ordering, easy pick up at the take out entrance and good food. We will use this location again.

We were in town for my son's college intramural tournament, and came here to watch the first Final Four game after his tournament was finished for the day. We had to wait a while, but it was a Saturday night. The service wasn't bad, food was good, and overall it was a good experience.

How do you bring TWO orders of fajita's to a table and NO plates???????????? Do I really need to tell you I need that? Not that you would have brought it to me, cause you hardly check on us.

Don't bother stopping. Wasn't worth the time we waited or money we spent. Our waitress must have been dating the bartender because she was talking to him instead of waiting tables. Not good. Took forever to get a burger. Won't stop again.

To be honest it has been a long time since I have been to a Chili's because the last time I wasn't a huge fan. This one seems a little different it was in the same parking lot as my hotel which got me to go but the service and the food quality is what will get me back there.... More

Totally forgot to out out order in? Seriously? Disappointing for this place to be that poor. Seem to be very under managed.

Our food was very good. We had fajitas, ribs and steaks and they were all very good. The steak was overcooked but still good. Our waiter was very attentive even though very busy. It did take a while to get our food but they kept the chips and salsa coming.

I've had bad and good experiences at Chilis. This one was flawless. Ordered two meat fajitas. Came out quick. Service was flawless. Average price point. Would definitely eat here again.

I normally do not care for Chili's. I've just had one bad experience after another at these restaurants. This one however did a good job with even a bad situation they were dealing with. They were three servers short on their wait staff who were supposed to be there at a midweek dinner rush. The wait was still not bad... More
