We were really impressed with the staff. We ate an early dinner with old friends. The waitress went above and beyond the call of duty. She even took pictures for the group. The serving size was large and the food was good. We sit at our table for probably 2 hours and never felt rushed.

Long wait for food, with a not so busy lunch hour. Daughters critter bites were over-cooked chicken. Not editable.

The food is really good if you can overlook hamburger patty that requires using an entire napkin to soak up the grease. Panko crusted onion rings were delicious and NOT greasy. Lettuce leaf was really sparse and limp.

The last time we cam here was the same issue. Gave them a second chance and it didn't amaze me one bit. The service was awful, the food came out cold even with the plates steaming hot. Tickets were wrong, and the MGR didn't know crap. Last time...

Food is served hot. Service is good in slower periods. When it gets packed, service can suffer as kitchen does not keep up well. Most of the dishes are quite tasty and well prepared. Prices are fair. Probably is the best restaurant in Ruston. Worth a visit.

Service and food is sporadic. Sometimes great other times awful. We had several different things. Guacamole was good but small, chips and salsa were good. The ribs were great but the Mexican plate was cold and warmed over. Usually it is much better. There were several in our group and their food ranged from average to great. It took forever... More

Unfortunately, this place is consistently bad. We have given the place a few opportunities and only one time out of four would I say it was a good experience. Portions are often lacking and food is sub par and just overall seems poorly run. As an example, a recent and likely last trip in the place unless something changes, went... More

They apologized and gave it to me in a box but... More

My family and I have eaten an Chili's in several other places, it usually is pretty good service and food. My daughter and I were running errands and I needed to get back to work an hour away. We stopped at Chili's at about 11:20 AM, we figured with it being that early, we could get out pretty quick. We... More
