Great food and service. Very accommodating to my dietary needs. We were not there for happy hour, but offered 1/2 price appetizers.

The food is pretty good for a chain restaurant. They were pretty good at cooking my husbands burger medium rare, which is hard to find cooked properly these days. Our main complaint was how LOUD the restaurant was. We never complain about the noise in a restaurant until we went there. They had about 3 TVs running with volume as... More

My colleague and I were rather disappointed with this visit to Chili's. The food tasted like it had been reheated and wasn't fresh. Service was very slow.

Ugh, where to begin. I use to LOVE Chili's, y go to place, but their quality has been slipping. Something in me keeps saying give them one more chance. I won't be after this visit. Their chicken crispers were arguably they best thing on the menu but someething happened when they changed to the crispy version. Though original is still... More

The food was great. Service was lacking... The restaurant was pretty much empty while we were there and it still took over 45 minutes to get our food. And some of the orders were incorrect. But, we are big fans of Chili's, so will be back.

This is up to par with other Chili's where I've eaten around the country. Good consistent quality food and friendly staff.

I brought my family on Easter evening--granted, Chili's was one of the only restaurants open in town and likely understaffed for the number of customers they had. Our server was friendly when we saw him, but that was too infrequent given our desire for drink refills and figuring out their novel digital payments system at the table. My son unknowingly... More

After a full day at a customer site I just wanted a decent meal to finish the day. I decided to go Chili's, where I haven't been in a long time, and which is very close to my hotel I'm staying at. Boy, what a mistake. I ordered the Sirloin Steak with mashed potatoes and broccoli. It tasted like the... More
