“Our second visit was about the same”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 26, 2014

We gave Chili's a 2nd chance. Upon arrival about 1/3 of the tables were available, but we had to give our name and wait ten minutes. We were told that at 5:30 pm, "All of our help has not arrived yet." While waiting for our food to arrive, the wife played a "free" game on the tables gizmo. The screen said that she could play all weekend for free. When the bill came, it showed a 99 cent charge for the game. We had it removed from the bill and the assistant apologized, saying that it did that to everyone, but she will take it off the bill. If it is doing it to everyone, why not warn customers in advance? The wife had the half rack of ribs with just the dry rub, no sauce. She said that they were very good. That was the only high point of our visit. I had the Southwest burger and asked that it be "medium." It came well done, which was dry and disappointing. I had the Texas cheese fries which were over cooked and most were stuck to the skillet. Jamie was our server, she was either a bit slow, overworked, or as the person who sat us said, they were short on staff, as it took about 10 minutes to get 2 iced teas. I think that we know enough about this Chili's and we will go elsewhere from now on.

“I thought it was great”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 24, 2014

Took my father there while in town visiting him. We were there for lunch. Had a hard time deciding what to have because there were so many tempting choices. Food was good and the service was too.

“Just okay”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 26, 2014

Four of us went for dinner, three got the food and one had to wait 3-4 minutes for theirs, One had nearly cold potato soup that they sent back. My fajitas were okay, but the onions and peppers were overcooked and stuck to the skillet. The service was slow. Wife said the ribs were good. One had molten lava cake for dessert, which molten means hot, but it was barely warm. We were not impressed.

The waitress was there fast but drinks and food took awhile. When we ordered desert it took 15 minutes to get. Not right

“Great lunch offerings”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 4, 2013

My wife and I stopped here to have lunch, and were pleased with the selections available for lunch as well as our service from Brian. We picked items from their lunch combo menu, allowing us to mix a half sandwich with a side type item and fries. I had the Chicken & Guacamole Sandwich with Chile and my wife had the Chicken Fajitas (forgot her side). We had good portions, great tasting food, and excellent service.
