Let me begin by saying that my wife and I really like Chili's. It's one of the restaurants in our rotation. The manager has even picked up the tab when we brought in our special needs daughter, so we love the place. However, the new Honey Chipotle Chicken Crispers with Waffles is another story. I love honey chipotle chicken crisper,... More

Let me start out by saying, I've never met a cheeseburger I didn't like until I tried the new grass fed burger at Chilis. In fact, 3 of the 4 people in our party found the burger inedible. My friend had one bite and had to run to the washroom to spit it out. I didn't even take a bite..couldn't... More

Well this Chili's was the dirtiest restaurant I have ever been in! We walked in and I knew we should have walked right out. Half of the tables were filled with dirty dishes. We came in after lunch but before dinner the place was empty so really no excuse for the dishes to sit around. As we were eating, the... More

Had not been here in a while. Very surprised at two things, warmed over meat in the fajitas (beef and pork), the chicken was fresh. Very limited wine and beer menu. They were busy, and seemed to enjoy a fairly strong following.

Very clean, great/fast service. Food came very quickly. I had the grilled chicken sandwich-was very delish! Good choice!

Chili's Mexican food is always full of spices and flavor. Fajita comes out in hot skillets so that is is never served cold. The skillets are put on a wooden server, make sure you do not burn yourself. The cocktails are great and so are the desserts. My favorite is the Molten Chocolate Cake.

We ate at Chilis while staying in Merrillville for the dance/band competition. The service was good, it took a little longer for them to bring our food out but it was well worth the wait! Absolutely delicious.

I like their 2 for $20. We like to go there after golf. We can split a meal and get things we want to try but not get for ourselves, especially a dessert. They have TVs so you can watch the game while you eat.

Here for lunch with family&friends. Good service, friendly. Luncheon specials were good. However, on way to restroom, aisle way had food that had been there for a while. In Women's restroom, both stalls had leaks, floor messy. Not up to par with Chilies we've been to in the past.
