We went to Chili's for lunch and found it to be outstanding. The service was good, not great. Server was pleasant and helpful with questions about the selections we were interested in for lunch. Food exceeded our expectations. Started with some excellent chicken chili type soup. The double cheese burger was one of the best we have ever had as... More

We went to Chili's on 1/1/17. We had gone several times in the past and always enjoyed the food even though the service was very slow. When we got there we were told that there would be a 10 minute wait. There were 7 empty, clean tables in the restaurant area and 5 in the bar area. We weren't sure... More

Went to Chili's for lunch with a friend, yesterday. I had an iced tea and a lunch menu Chicken and Bacon sandwich. It was on a pretzel bread bun, with a large grilled chicken breast, very tender and juicy, a special sauce that was so tasty, tomato and lettuce. They served it with fries, which was the smallest portion I... More

We visited this restaurant about a year ago and the service was horrible from the minute we walked in. This last visit we were pleasantly surprised. Why did we return after such a bad experience? I heard there were improvements in staff. We had to find out. The service had definitely improved and the food is good.

Have been to this Chili's location several times, when we come down to the area for stay, however it always seems that they are short waiters. Every time we have been (Dinner) they have a number of open tables, but 10 - 15 people waiting to be seated, as they do not have enough waiters to service. The most recent... More

The wait staff are friendly so I'm not sure what the hold up is but it is typically a really long wait when having dinner there. Also I'm not real fond of the new menu - give me the menu Chilis had 13 yrs ago and color me happy. That was good simple food. I think Chilis as a franchise... More

I was very impressed with the service at this Chili's. I have dined here several times now, and keep coming back because the staff treats me like family. They take good care of my dining needs, and their service is quick and efficient. The restaurant has always been clean, and the food is outstanding.
