Chili's menu is rather big, they have ribs, steaks and chicken. They have a pretty good lunch menu. I got a spicy chicken penne pasta that was delicious with Texas toast. There's a bar in the middle with several televisions all over the restaurant. The food is outstanding.

Needed a quick dinner after returning from a flight from Florida. Chili's is near the airport, so my wife and I decided to go there. We had quick, cheerful service and good food.

The bartender was great, pace of the meal was very good. Everything was hot and fresh. Server made good suggestions and did not rush me to order.

I had an amazing time here, the server was very attentive to my needs as well as my sons. She did an awesome job. I got the Cajun shrimp pasta and it was absolutely delicious as well as a fried pickle appetizer!

this place is a hit or miss type of place. several times...great food, everything fine...other times...wish I had not stepped inside. The service in bar area is as terrible as possible...sit at the bar and wait 10 minutes for a beer. Food comes and sometimes not waht you ordered...like i said...hit or miss.

We went to another Chili's but they were out of guacamole . They were very helpful in sending us to one who did have it. When we arrived at the Newport News Chili's we were treated like old friends and visited with all the staff. The food was amazing and so were the margaritas. We had a wonderful meal and... More

We recently visited Chili's on Friday night the 24th of June with a party of 15! First of all the fact that they would seat all of us on a Friday night was fantastic! We call three restaurants and not one of them said they could help us! Our server quickly took out drink orders and brought our appetizers almost... More

For an "unbusy" restaurant the service was painfully slow. Not sure what is going on in the kitchen back there but oh my goodness. We went with another family and my husband did not want to go there. His experience has always been very slow service. I asked him to give it another chance. We went. Slow. He just looked... More
