Super busy restaurant on the evening of our visit, but seated quickly. Very pleasant staff and quality food made this visit enjoyable. Chips and salsa were plentiful followed by chosen entrees.

This use to be a great Chilis near the University of South Florida campus, however the area is very questionable now and to go there in the evening for dinner can be kind of worrisome. Also the service has really gone downhill also. It took...More

I was dining alone, and sat at the bar. I ordered the same Skillet Queso I've been ordering at Chili's for 20+ years. What I got was NOT what I'm used to getting. The Queso dip was in the same skillet, but was roughly 1/2...More

This location seems to have their own steak supplier since it’s usually the wrong cuts. Manager does not know which is which when asked. Always no refills on drinks. Not good.

Normally I try to avoid these types of places simply because of the loud environment. This visit however was great, from the service, the great tasting food and the friendly staff, I would recommend this place. The salmon dish was worth it, I will return.

We were seated promptly. The food was brought quickly and was hot. It was well seasoned. The chips were fresh and not greasy. My asparagus was cooked exactly like I like it. Not soft and mushy. Just kinda crunchy.

We went around 4pm and we were sitted immediately. We just wanted some margaritas and girl talk for a bit and that's exactly what we got. It was great. Only thing was it did take long for the next round of margaritas and no water:(

My daughter and like this place because of location and food. The service and food are always good. The only thing to careful is crossing the street to the place Tampa drivers do not watch for people walking( most on cell phones or speeding.

Good food options, very good combos, great drinks, options for children. A great place to go with family. The only problem is that, there is no Wi-Fi, this is the reason for not having 5 stars.
