I ordered some bone-in wings and they brought me boneless. They took hours. I also ordered some BBQ ribs and were super dry. I'd recommend you to go to the branch that is some miles north in Mountain View.

The waiter had her thumb in my rice. I couldn't even touch the rice after seeing that. Im pretty sure thats waiting 101. It ruined my whole meal. The waiter was very pleasant other than that but I could not see past it.

Have visited a couple of different Chili's location in recent months and most recently the Santa Clara location. The more diversified menu has an increasing number of selections. The food is quite good, the price is fair and reasonable, and the service is usually friendly and efficient. Personally, I tend towards their more traditional menu selections and always enjoy their burgers which are tasty, filling, and well prepared with fresh ingredients. Their desserts are great also!
As to the Santa Clara location, it is convenient, has a lot of convenient parking, and usually is easy to get seated and served. It has a simple, relaxing ambiance to it. The one problem with this location is that there does not seem to be enough servers and staff. The servers are overworked (not their fault) and the place can sometimes seem messy as there's not a person in sight who is assigned to cleaning off tables. These are management and operational problems that, thankfully, don't make the food any less appetizing and reasonably priced.
