Visited Chilis for an early evening meal. Not the most comfortable feeling restaurant but fine for a basic meal. Friendly server and actually very good value, tasty food. It won't win any awards but it did the job nicely.

Eaten here a couple times, staff are friendly, food is good with nice selection. The issue is the staff not being aware of the noise factor they create from slamming tables and chairs around to slamming plates in the kitchen area. They also yell to...More

Not the best but not the worst. The house salad was good but the SouthWestern egg rolls were terrible and they are usually my favorite. Disappointed!

Had to wait 20 mins fo a table, once seated, service was fairly good, only complaint was that our appetiser came out at the same time as the entrees when we had specifically asked for it before. Food was hot and tasty though.

I like coming here for happy hour. They have good options and the chips and salsa is always free refills. If you sit in the bar area, you can order from the regular menu toi.

Service was good and our food came out timely. The 2 for $22 had some nice options on the menu. Tried the 6 oz sirloin which had good flavor and cooked perfect. The spicy chicken was also delicious.

Good food, good service, clean place. All important when out dining. If you get the new fiery chicken strips, plan on them being SUPER hot!!! Usually when dining out, if it says hot, its usually not. BUT this IS HOT!!! Tasty too.

Contrary other reviews, we were seated quickly and our server was on the ball. The hamburger was very good. Two of the three fish tacos tasted good and one was a bit fishy tasting. I would stick with the burgers, as that is what they...More

We came here for a quick snack during lunch time. We really like their chips and queso. The menu is okay for a shopping excursion and place to sit down, but I normally wouldn't come here unless you wanted to go during happy hour. We...More
