“Ok, but not what they used to be”
Reviewed 1 December 2013

We've eaten at many, many Chili restaurants, and all in all they are not what they used to be. The drinks at this location were weak at best. The waitress was kind enough to send them back, but the bartender or the company recipe's are not as good as they used to be. The decor is very dates and desperately needs to be updated. The nachos were excellent like we remembered. Too bad they charge for chips. Seems like they have gotten very cheap and skimpy.

“Good and consistent”
Reviewed 15 October 2013 credit card Amex Cardmember Review

Like all chain restaurants this place is consistent. The staff is very friendly and the food is always good. You know what to expect here. Haven't really ever had a bad experience.

“Great service, poor food”
Reviewed 22 September 2013

I ordered chicken fajitas. The chicken was cold and had some dressing on it, the veggies where microwaved and spongy. It looked like everything was just dropped on a hot plate and burned when it was delivered to me. I was very disappointed.

“My favorite place”
Reviewed 16 September 2013

Chili's Grill & Bar is my favorite American restaurant. I find it better than Applebees. The food is very good whether its steak or chicken. As for the dessert the Molten chocolate lava cake is a must try.
