“Not impressed”
Reviewed 11 December 2013

My family of 4 went to Chili's at 6pm. The waitress didn't bring drinks, sugar, plates or napkins after asked and had to be reminded several times. We ordered 2 meals from the kids menu which did come to our table piping hot. My husband and I ordered the fajita trios but were very disappointed it them. Both entrees came to our table but neither one was sizzling or hot the way it should have been. The meats had really no flavor at all. The peppers and onions were soggy like they had been cooking for a LONG time and the rice and beans were a waste of the $1.99 each it cost us to have them added on. The only reason the waitress finally brought us a check after walking past our table numerous times is because we stood up with the kids in our arms and the diaper bag over my shoulder. I definitely will not be returning to this restaurant the remainder of this trip or any other. A $60 dinner and we left disappointed.

“Reliable Chain Experience”
Reviewed 28 October 2013 via mobile

Hit Chili's after running the Marine Corps Marathon, so it was a busy day. Service was okay. The food really hit the spot. We had a good time just relaxing. The environment was hospitable.

“Chili's treated us right”
Reviewed 24 October 2013

Good food, good service, nice, personable wait staff. I really enjoyed the black bean burger. As a vegetarian I often find myself with limited choices, but this black bean substitution option made my meal a delight.

“Quick lunch”
Reviewed 17 October 2013

Great lunch, took some time to get service but once we advised we were in a rush everything went smoothly. Flatbread was excellent.

“Decent chain experience........”
Reviewed 6 August 2013

Staying nearby while on vacation.......we ventured into Chili's because while we rarely do mid-scale chains, we do occasionally enjoy this particular chain. We had about a 5 minute wait on a Monday around 7:00pm. The server started off slow but improved as the night went on. He was an 8 on a scale of 10.

We ordered their chili dip and chips that comes with their salsa. We never order an appetizer but this is our one exception. This is really the only place that the server let us down. We asked for more chips and salsa but he never got around to it.

Our food came out before we could get too upset at not getting more chips and salsa. The food came out good and hot (that is our one must with restaurant food or it goes back). We got our bill in a timely matter. Our experience was a solid B+.
