Ate here because it was a known entity. Service was slow, but food was good - the same you get at any Chilis.

We ate here on a Sunday night as there was nothing else open except IHop. The waitress we had was slower than slow and it took forever for us to get our food. Hubby ordered a burrito and it was lukewarm. My son ordered a pasta dish and said it was OK. I ordered a medium burger that came out... More

We had dinner here and enjoyed the food and good service. Chili's is always a good bargain and a nice place to eat. Family friendly.

Decent quality food. Ready when we showed up to pick up. Chicken tenders were way to greasy but otherwise everything else is what you would expect from Chili's.

We are big fans of Chili's. We have finally had a bad one. Very slow. Not in a hurry. I gave a decent tip, and wife asked why? Management walking around, but not paying attention. Won't be back anytime soon.

Chili's is a normal chain restaurant. Very general menu to appeal to a few different tastes. I thought this one was ran very well. It was busy & I mean PACKED! They gave us drinks while we waited for a table, got a table in 20 min. We were assigned multiple waitresses. They all did a great job. I had... More

Had a 30 minute wait so get the app and get your name in without being there. Surprisingly the food was good but the waitress had an attitude. She kinda but a damper on the meal. Not much to choose from in this town.

This is a typical Chilli's: restaurant ambiance on one side and bar ambiance on the other with easy to order and eat food. It has the reliable menu that we enjoy at Chilli's too! The distinguishing feature: Chilli's is the meeting point on the south side of town after 5pm where people go to have a drink or a snack... More

We had to wait 15 minutes to be seated because it was busy. I was told that that it is normally busy and only on Monday and Tuesday is there not a line for dinner. The food was typical of Chili's, tasty, and the service was good even though they were very busy. We would eat here again.

We weren't really hungry but we managed to find a small meal for each of us. Grandson ordered half a rack of ribs and we each ordered a flat bread appetizer as our meal. Services was efficient and friendly. Very good air conditioning which felt great since it was deathly hot outside.

Thank lggg70
