“Sometimes great and sometimes not so great”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 29, 2011

The food and service both are a gamble, just depends on the day. I have eaten here many times in the last 3 years and that is the only thing that is consistant. Just never know what you're going to get. One time a dish will be great and the next time it is terrible.

“very disappointed”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 8, 2010

I will never eat at this nasty place again in my life,
the food was cold, service bad, drinks taste like water
my husband had a bug with wings in his drink, the
floor was dirty then someone had the nerves to sweep
while people were eating, the waiter took my son food
without asking if he was finish eating or not, the waiter
was male and he didn't seem to want to do his job, and
our table had dried old food on it. Then he comes over
and gave us a $60.00 ticket, WOW and it was my birthday
lunch my husband took me there because I always wanted
to eat there and i am so disappointed. I wish I had ask for
a to to cup and took this bug to a law office. I am writing to
the BBB and will let the owner know about this

“should not call it chili's”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 20, 2008

i eat at chili's all the time in port arthur tx and it is excellent, when i tried the one here i was very disappointed, the chilli tasted like wolf brand chili out of a can, the service was terrible and we did not get 1/2 of our order. the appetizers never showed up, the drink orders were wrong, and i dont think ritilin would of helped our waitress. over all i would eat grub worms before i go back to the chilli's in lake charles

“It was good, but now...”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 27, 2008

We have eaten at this Chili's since it opened. It started out with a bang, great food and great service.

In the last year, It has gone downhill. The food is not consistent in its delivery in taste and the service is lacking. The table next to us tasted their order and immediately rejected it. It was so bad they paid their drink bill and left. As for our order, It lacked the flavors that were once the drawing card. We will not be back for a while.

All this is probably the results of Hurricane Rita that hit Lake Charles in 2005. There is a tremendous shortage of staff for food establishments.
