“Pleasantly surprised - we came back the next night!”
Reviewed 6 February 2014

This restaurant is located in the parking lot of the Days Inn motel. It is very convenient for those staying there as they can just walk out of the motel and right inside. We had excellent customer service both evenings which as everyone knows is hard to come by these days a lot of the time. They food was your typical fub fare of course but it was very yummy and they had a good selection of draft beers on tap and at a great price. The place was quite busy both times but service was quick and efficient and for what we had we paid a very fair price. When we return to South Portland and stay at the Days Inn this will definitely be our restaurant of choice and convenience and will not bother walking over to the mall. Msg to management - your staff were really great and friendly- from the hostess to the server and anyone we encountered in between. FYI, our visits were on the evenings of Jan 3 and 4th, 2014.

“Chili Stop”
Reviewed 14 January 2014 credit card Amex Cardmember Review

Was passing through Portland, ME on I-295 and needed to make a quick stop for a hot meal. Saw the Chili's and stopped by. Service was great and quick. Food was good and hot. When your traveling you sometimes need to sit and catch a break. This worked out for us. Back on the road in 45 minutes for the long trek north

“First and last night in Portland”
Reviewed 29 August 2013

Right next door the the Day's inn. so very handy...after going downtown we stopped for a nightcap...super friendly bartender and drinks were good. Last night ordered their chili as we did not want to go downtown...it was not very hot but good...bartender warmed it up to take back to hotel. Nice to be remembered after our travels up to New Brunswick...that is what a good Bartender does.

“Average in every way”
Reviewed 8 August 2013

The food was just OK and the service was somewhat lacking. The service was friendly but slow, and the restaurant itself was nice enough but also very standard.

Overall, there are better options to be had in the area: I encourage you to explore them.

“Nothing to chill in Chilli's”
Reviewed 17 June 2013

This was a very good place to eat since we were staying to the Days Inn just beside it. I ordered a ne food in the menu the Tilapia w mango salsa. I was very disappointed because it was so spicy and salty. The broccoli was also so salty. I complained to our server who very nice to have taken it off from our bill and offered to replace it but I didn't want to wait for long. I just ordered a flat bread which was perfectly done. My son ordered the crispy chicken and it was good.
I was not really amazed by their food. Nothing really different.
