We went to Chilis on 10/29. We've been there before, but this was the first time we ordered off the $35 menu. The selections were good and the baby back ribs were very good. However we ordered the chips with guacamole only to be told they were out of guacamole. So I asked for sliced avocado and was told "no... More

Not a big fan of chains and it's been a long time since I'd been to Chili's, but it was right next door to our hotel. So why not? We were a large group, so we called ahead and surprisingly we didn't have to wait too long. The service was pretty fast. I had the Fajitas and they were as... More

Had to ask for more that were warmed. Do not like having to un wrap tightly wrapped in foil tortillas and pick off tim folk... More

I go maybe once a week for a nice meal and friendly service. Always a cheerful staff with good food as a reasonable price.

Went with friends after a successful gymnastics meet to celebrate. The host was welcoming...they were just about to welcome a large party so things were a little slow upon arriving but we had very good service once seated. Around the table, all our dishes were enjoyed: the most appealing of which was a 6oz sirloin with grilled avocado that was... More

I am famous (in the small universe that consists of my family) of steadfastly maintaining that Chili's is fin fine for lunch, but not acceptable later on. OK, this one is. Only popped over for a beer (they don't promote them, but they have excellent microbrews), but saw a wide variety of tasty appetizers and entrees at the bar that... More
