“There's A Reason The Steak Knives Have Round Edges”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 19, 2014

...and it's to prevent injury to "staff".
Amazingly long wait times for the simplest of requests.
Food that rates up there with Halliburton institutional fare. Even their croutons were stale.
Skip the burned tortillas, under cooked seafood (ER anyone?) or the sorry practice of charging extra for another tablespoon sized serving of mystery sauce.
Granted, the floor manager did check in...once. And kudos for her. Turning one's life around so quickly upon release from the "Big House" must send the assigned parole officer straight back to his Chili's connects when the time for job placement arrives for his wards. Keep 'em coming pal...they'll blend right in.
Maybe I'm just put off that the table right next door were treated respectfully. Nah, it's because their food looked edible. Granted, from a distance. Maybe they gagged it up later as well.
And don't forget to employ their state of the art pay at the table kiosk...before you call your bank to dispute the bogus charges added.
And as I'm indulging a much deserved rant directed towards unforgivable business practice, since when is it acceptable to be seated next to a screaming 2 year old? In the bar intended for adults who not only handle their alcohol but more importantly their own offspring?
Nice work folks. You failed miserably.

We had the chips and salsa and they were terrific. We had fajitas and they arrived sizzling with fresh sides...we loved the southwestern eggrolls...mmmmmm...great service too...

“Good food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 20, 2014

I have been eating at Chili's for many years. This location is perfect for me since I live behind the forum. Good food and service.
However, if you plan on applying at Chili's for a position. BEWARE, they take forever if ever in hiring. I was helping a friend try for a management position. They interviewed him and 4 months later they were still trying to decide to hire him. Fortunately, he found a better job. They were still emailing him asking him for another interview. Ridiculous. I would think Chili's had a better hiring plan in place.

“It's a Chili's”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 4, 2014

Typical Chili's, nothing extra-ordinary. Good food, decent bar. Stays pretty busy at this location. At the main entrance to the Forum shopping center right on I35 North. Easy to get to, decent parking.

“Horrible management”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 10, 2014

Poor service, one waitress handling entire section, while few were relaxing on break. Management did not seem to be setting standards... Would just walk around rather than help out.
