Awesome and fast, even if you customize your order. Great red and Green chili. Breakfast burritos are really good and big. The chicken burrito at lunch is huge, healthy and tasty. Classic short order cooks, could be on Saturday night live.

Hands down, Chili Works is THE BEST when it comes to breakfast burritos. Try one with sausage and green chile. Your nose will run because the chile is hot, but your taste buds will be forever grateful, and you'll be hooked. Another of my favorites...More

I ordered a bacon breakfast burrito w/cheese and green chili with no special instructions. The green chili was great, but the burrito was real heavy on potatoes and a bit light on the bacon. I'll give them another try due to the very positive comments...More
