I hated the onion "flower bud"; looked great but resulted in bad stomach. I am told they have upgraded their menu with less processed food, salt, sugar & fat. Still not my idea of a place
worth bothering with. But we all know I am a foodie snobbie.

I really like this chain. The food is usually consistent and the prices are very good. I was surprised that the chips and salsa aren't complimentary here. They have been at all other Chili's that I have dined at. And unlike the ones in Florida, the drinks are not 2 for 1 here either.

For dessert I ordered the Chocolate Chip Paradise Pie. It is supposed to have chocolate and caramel drizzled all over it. There was almost nothing. When I was asked how it was, I mentioned that it was dry and asked for a bit more chocolate on it. Our waitress apologized and said the chocolate machine wasn't working properly. She insisted on getting me another though I was fine with just some more chocolate. She returned with a new one covered in a lighter colored chocolate. She told me she used magic shell instead. This changed the taste completely, and not for the better. It was now a different dessert than the one on the menu that would still cost me the same. I would have preferred nothing than this one.

The food as advertised is never bland. I have several favorites here. Shrimp tacos , shrimp fajitas, and fire roasted guacamole with chips and salsa. Tracy is by far the best waitress. She always remembers me and what I like to eat. I prefer the bar atmosphere better than the restaurant side. And you can read the news, check the weather and play games at your table.

We ordered mix-and-match baby back ribs [Honey chipotle and Memphis dry rub] and two sides. Quite enjoyable.
