Never had a bad meal at the Chilis in Encinitas or Oceanside, so both should be considered as excellent choices. Oceanside service can be slow at times, even when they are not busy, so I don't know whether they have problems in staffing or the staff just isn't doing their job. Encinitas is always on top of their game, so I can't cut the rating due to bad experience at one place for service. Food is always great, worth the visit.

Usually very good but last Friday the wait staff in the bar was VERY slow and disorganized. I hope this is a isolated incident.

Friendly service with reasonable prices and menu variety make this a popular eating place especially for young people. My wife and I visited on a Monday at 7 pm and the place was full. The only negative was that the beverage list did not mention prices, thus if you ordered a glass of chardonnay they could charge you anything they wanted, especially since even our waitress was not sure herself about the wines' prices! It is a well-known fact that restaurants try to increase profitability by padding the alcoholic drinks' prices, but hiding them? That goes a bit too far.

My wife and I visited Chili's the other night. We go there fairly regularly for a good meal at a very reasonable price. Where else can you get an excellent ribeye steak for $17? The serving staff is always courteous and friendly, the food and drinks arrive promptly. The food is good quality and the overall experience is over and above the normal neighborhood family restaurant experience. It's a good family place and although it can get a little noisy at times, it's still one of our favorite places for a reasonably priced family dinner.
