We got the fajitas salad and dessert for $10. It was great. Good service and clean bathrooms. I would go back

Ate lunch with my granddaughter. Services were prompt and attentive throughout. I ordered the Caribbean salad. Salad looked good with mixed greens and nice chunks of fruit, but the shrimp was tasteless and about two thirds way through the salad it became very watery. My granddaughter order the mac and cheese and it looked as if it was prepared out... More

I have always like Chili's for a decent meal with my family. Their new commercial showing how they started is fantastic. We had a great waitress in Asheville, but her name escapes me, but we were at table 37. They have a new gadget at the table the allows you to swipe your credit card and check yourself out, if...

We are local residents and have been going here 3-4 times a month for over a year. On our most recent visit, the restaurant was not busy - about 25% occupied. Starting with the hostess station - they really need to hire employees for this position that know how to welcome and interact with customers. The staff here has always... More

My wife, niece and I stopped in for a drink and appetizers before we had to catch a flight. with ample time to eat we sat at a high top and we're not acknowledged for over 20 minutes. The restaurant had maybe 5 other patrons in the bar area, so they were not under staffed. It was just blatantly disrespectful.... More

The Mango tea was way too sweet and the chicken quesadilla was way too salty for my taste. Others at my table liked their salad and steak tacos. Our waitress was very nice. I wouldn't go out if my way to eat at this location. I've eaten at other Chilis where the chefs are better.

It's Chilis. Food is what you expect. Still pretty good. Service here is very slow though. Staff yelling back and forth to each other. Why go here when there is so much better around town?

We were seated near the kitchen and during our whole dinner, all we heard were the workers bagging dishes around and almost yelling at each other. It was very annoying. We couldn't wait to get out of there. I'm not sure what kind of managers would allow this kind of noise pouring out onto the dining floor.

Food was good. Service was okay. Was thinking they could have wiped the table and seats off before seating us. We took pur napkins and wiped the residue off from drinking glasses and crumbs. I could understand if they were really busy but please wipe the table and seat off.

I went in today with co workers to have lunch and ordered a bacon cheeseburger and fries. The food was great and everyone else enjoyed their meals. They have a huge selection to choose from and the staff checked on us many times to make sure everything was okay. I would eat there again in the future.
