“We'll be back again!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 May 2012

I had a lunch date with my husband at Chili's and had a great experience. The service was excellent and the food was delicious. Reasonable lunch menu. I must tell you that there are always lots of vehicles parked outside of the restaurant, which is a good sign. Oh...and the restaurant was packed when we went there for a lunch. You should definitely check this restaurant out. We will be back again!

“You get what you expect”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 March 2012

As much as I dislike going to chain restaurants this Chili's presented no surprises and nothing extraordinary. Chili's tired menu is the same in every location - shame they don't go back to their origin and serve what they did at the first restaurant.

There were some definite attitude problems at the To go desk on one night and the bartender was mainly absent during another visit.

Overall very lackluster and no enthusiasm or energy from the staff - boring visits.

Go at least 5-6 times a year for birthdays. But cutting down to maybe 2-3 time.

“Chili's is the same everywhere, it seems....”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 July 2005

Came here for drinks with a friend while visiting the area, and also came for dinner on another night. Chili's here is the same as the Chili's back home (Houston, Tx. area) Same exact menu, same layout, same ambience. If you like Chili's, then this place won't be a disappointment. It's one of the few places in La Mesa that stays open late enough to enjoy a drink with friends after 9 pm on a weeknight.

Thank cmb2
