We've tried this restaurant several times because one family member likes it. They like the bacon cheeseburger. However, the other two of us find it totally Underwhelming. With incorrect orders in the past, food that is just okay and service that is not very good or friendly, we just are not thrilled with this site. Only one time and that... More

Let me preface this by saying that we go to Chili's in Manteca on a regular basis and are always pleased with our service and food. The service here in Modesto was fine, but the food quality was lacking. I always order the fish tacos with the black beans. The black beans are my favorite! Either the recipe has changed... More

Have never eaten at a Chili's but stopped for dinner during a road trip. The parking lot was packed with a small fair, but we were seated within 10 minutes. It took another 20 for our order to be taken after we flagged a poor waitperson who was kind enough to take our order. Getting our food took another 40... More

Good food and service. Nice to grab a table in the bar area without waiting. Can usually be seated a lot faster that way.

Ok, I expect more from you Chilis. Every time I've eaten your food I've been underwhelmed, never once have I experienced close to decent service at one of your establishments.. But, this time you've gone too far. Refusing to fire an order ahead of time for a disabled child on a busy night when parents call in with the request... More

They do have a huge selection to choose from so everyone should find something they like. Food is just average. I enjoyed the table side guacamole and chips. Very generous amount of crisp chips! Enchiladas with jalapeños were also good. I would return to try something different!

What can I say about the food? It's a food chain and just like most chains the food is very standard or lower. This time I had the fajitas which the only 3 good things about it was the items were in a separate plate and just the meats in one plate, that I liked and also I was asked... More

While a few years ago chili's would be the go to restaurant when you were not sure what you wanted to eat. Those days seem to be long gone. The last few times I have visited chili's I should have canceled my order and left. When you have to send a part of your meal back to the kitchen every... More

As far as a franchise restaurant goes it's not bad. The food is good and their drinks are good. It's always overly packed on a Friday and Saturday night. Happy hours are very good and love to sit at the bar to watch a game with friends.
