“Carlsbad Chili's”
Reviewed July 2, 2014

Quality and service that is consistent with the Chili's franchise, even though located in a really small, somewhat isolated community.

“Great meal”
Reviewed June 10, 2014

Had to wait nearly an hour but the waitress was excellent. It was Mother's Day. It was extremely hot in the waiting area but met some very nice people to pass the time. The food was terrific and plenty of it. Even the Margarita was superb!

“Not that Great”
Reviewed June 5, 2014

I am a big fan of Chilli's, but this particular restaurant was sub-par. The service took forever, the food was not that great, and even though they gave a military discount, we could not get the girl to fix the bill. We were seated next to the bar and I swear, my husband was bathed in several beers. At least 4 were dropped on the floor while we sat there.

I am just glad the Chilli's in our town is not this bad.

“Best in town!”
Reviewed May 28, 2014

After stopping at several restaurants and looking at menu's and ambiance we decided to eat at Chili's. It's apparent that there aren't too many good restaurants in Carlsbad since most of the fast food places were full. We don't normally dine at Chili's, so we were quite surprised with the great service we received and the tasty meal we enjoyed. If you're in Carlsbad, this is the place to eat! After this visit we will more than likely visit a Chili's near our home.

“Okay food, okay service”
Reviewed May 27, 2014

Nothing stood out about this Chilis when compared to any other location. The food is the same as offered elsewhere and the service was okay or mediocre. You wont get any surprises here.
