Got home from a long day and though we would unwind a bit. Headed to another restaurant, which was very packed, so thought about this place (where there's no fighting) and it made sense. Expereinced a little waiting period but seated us in a very timely manner. We tried the 2 For $20 with the Mango Chicken. Really very good... More

Are friend arrived early but by 5:20pm on Saturday the wait was one hour. They had plenty on open tables but seemed to be short on staff. The service was even slow and lacked attention. Either get your act together or close your doors.

The wait to get in wasn't too bad but the waiting area was bad. The servers did an excellent job but the food there was not as good as other chilis I have eaten at. I waited 45 minutes after being seated for my waitress to come tell me they ran out of RIBBS. So I ordered a chicken fried... More

Just walked out of the place. In town for a training, 30 or so eating places there by the mall and we have the bad luck to wander in here. Bathrooms stunk like open sewers, the whole place needs some TLC. Ordered food at 12:23. Tables around us began getting food while our server ignored us. Finally, I summoned a... More

Food was typical. Service on the slow side because of the weekend. Air conditioner was a little overwhelming and had to go to the car for a jacket.

Food is good. But service is really bad. Our waiter told us we should go to 54th St. Grill. OMG if he worked for me, I would have fired him. Wine selections are very poor.

Love eating at Chili's even if it is a large meal. My favorite is their hamburgers and french fries. My husband and I like to eat here when we are out together.

The atmosphere was loud. The staff werent attentive. It took forever to get seated, even longer to order, and I wont even tell you how long to finally get our meals. So long, my friend asked for a to go box as we had already been there for 2 hours. My salad was wilted and drenched in dressing. I was... More
