My sons and I love going to Chili's. We were almost coming here once a week some months. Recently I feel it takes forever to get your food, even when ordering through the table machines. The servers are nice and mostly attentive, but not sure how mac-n-cheese from the kids menu takes around 45 minutes.

We weren't asked if it was a special occasion, when we were seated. Well it was our 37 anniversary. Our waitress was great, we had our 7 old grandson who is very shy and she was great with him. Prompt service even though it appeared her station was all over the place. Drinks - lemonade and soda was watered down.... More

Food was not worth the price and we never came back. Maybe it was what we ordered and other food could be great but our first impression was a lasting one.

Terrible service. Waitstaff all busy talking to each other. Very loud music they won't turn down because they think it's hip! Food was mediocre at best. I won't be returning.

My 16 year old son and 14 year old daughter really enjoy eating here! Pretty darn good food and prices not to bad? Kind of expensive to eat there often but a good place to change things up for a family that likes to eat out a lot!

Even though it's cookie cutter chain design is somewhat boring and predictable they actually have great service at the bar. I've eaten several times at the restaurant side and was never impressed but the bartenders are always great. Good beer selection, love the chips and salsa, good burgers.

Chili's is a favorite of mine. Besides having lunch or dinner with friends and family, I enjoy take out. I generally order online with a time frame and pick it up. The food is always plated well and served perfectly! I have favorites but I like to change it up from time to time. I love the Fried Pickles as... More

Not the cleanest place the first time we visited. Cleaner the second trip (limited restaurants in the area), food kind of bland, and the server forgot guacamole appetizer

Have been to Chilli's a few times and enjoyed their food. Service was very good. It's usually pretty crowded and therefore noisy. Prices are mid-range. They know how to cook a steak!
