This was the worst experience I have had at a restaurant in a long time. The waitress seemed disinterested and didn't offer any kind of apology for the under cooked chicken my wife received even after she complained about it. My fries were cold, the amount of sauce on my chipolte chicken fingers was sparse. IT was just a overall bad visit to a place that my family loves to eat at the few times we do eat out.

Thank Rlcahil

We weren't sure what time Chili’s closed, but when our group arrived at their patio door we were welcomed by a pleasant young man and whisked to our seating.
Our server, Amber, arrived immediately and told us that they close at 12:00,
but since it was 11:57 it was not a problem.
The $20 dinner for two menu is a great value, so we ordered the fire roasted corn and guacamole dip and chips for our appetizer, the grilled sirloin and the ½ rack of ribs with homestyle fries.
The dip was actually quite good. The steak was marinated in mojo and cooked exactly medium-rare as ordered. The ribs were tender and tasty.
Everyone else also enjoyed their choices.
They packed up our leftovers including a special microwavable bag for the chips.
Amber was attentive, charming and efficient.
At no time did we feel rushed, even though when we paid our bill we were the last customers to leave the restaurant.
All in all a very positive dining experience, and the quality could not be beat for the price.

We dined at Chili's July 21, 2012 and it was raining very badly. The wait was long, but considering plenty of patrons already seated did not want to exit into a storm, it was no big issue. Our server was Marissa and she had a nice pleasant personality. The food was typical Chili's food as we had the usual 2 for $20 deal. The wait for the food was longer than usual, which again I credit to the fact that it was storming outside and a lot of customers were just not exiting in the usual time. I would dine here again. Nothing terrible, and nothing spectacular.

Nothing extraordinary or out of the ordinary. We arrived around 1130am for lunch. There was hardly anyone there . . .which is unusual for this Chili's. We quickly found a booth at the bar. We were greeted quickly. Justin took drink order and returned with drinks and to take our order. Our food arrived on average time. Not fast but not forever either. Just right. He attended to our drinks and asked us if we needed anything several times. He got us to go cups for our drinks, which made us very happy! We enjoyed the food. Two of us had hamburgers which were very tastey and the other two had a flat bread wrap that wasn't on the menu but used to be and they made it with no second thought!!!
