“The staff is really nice.”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

I'm giving this a very good for the staff. We were in town for a Ducks game & decided on Chillis because we haven't had a bad meal yet. Let's just say I'll avoid this one before a game at the Honda Center. We had an early dinner that was not very good. The place was a mess and very crowded. We waited almost an hour for our burgers and they weren't what we ordered. I just chalked it up to a crazy busy day because our servers were so friendly and tentitive. We went back for midnight snack and it was great!!! Of course I'll go back. Just not before a game.....

“Like Chili's? Avoid this location at all costs.”
Reviewed February 7, 2013 via mobile

Chili's is a long time go-to for our family and we have frequently approximately a half dozen locations in S. California over they years. The food, while never dazzling, is solid and the kids like it. This Orange location though is plagued by not bad service, which is correctable, but indifferent service. Mixed up orders or messy restrooms are acceptable to the people that work here. They seem to realize their prized location adjacent to Honda Center and Angel Stadium will always sustain them with the boozehounds it attracts. But this place could be so much better. Locals will be better served to drive to Irvine location if they are hankering for their Baby Backs.

“It was Okay”
Reviewed October 2, 2012

Poor service and not very good food. They might have been understaffed but not worth the money. almost everything we ordered other then the long islands were made wrong, wrong item, or burnt.
