Very decent place. We've been here twice. Both times it was delicious. Large portions. Steaks, fajitas, burritos, tacos ... Lovely chocolate milkshake. Friendly waiters. Fast service. Compliance with the price / quality. We like. The only thing - to wait for a check for a long time.

I was surprised how bad chili's are. I used to went to chili's in my country it is to much batter then this one. The table was dirty. the food delivered to us not as we order. But the waitress was really nice to us. I really hope they get batter. Because I love chili's Restaurants so much.

I'm generally a fan of Chili's. We were traveling with the kids and this particular location had horrendous service. The food was normal but just ridiculous how long the service took. Took 20 minutes to get drink from the bar. It was not very busy either. No manager checking on things. staff walk by our table for 20 minutes while... More

I've been to various Chili's location in Philly and at all locations the service was beyond slow. Slow to the point that I had to cancel an order that for some odd reason took forever. I came on a lunch break from Jury Duty. Ordered a lunch combo, a burger and salad. Ok a salad is very fast to make... More

Having worked for years at a Chili's while in college and having frequented many since then (i'm a fool for the classic chicken nachos, don't ask), I knew my expectations shouldn't be too high, but this location set a new low - the worst Chili's I've ever been to. Long story short: * ignored by hosts for probably a minute,... More

Food is good. But waiter has no manners and no customer service. Very rude and careless. Ordered chicken tenders, fries and burger. Cant believe waiters are not trained on customer service.

I have eaten in other restaurants in this chain, and the food is always good. But this particular establishment was really quite dirty. Service was poor, there were messes all around our table and in the entrance, and there was so much noise we could hardly talk. Still, I would go back, since the food is indeed good.

Met a co-worker here for lunch and was surprised that so few tables were occupied. We were seated quickly and our drink order taken within 2 minutes of being seated. Our drinks arrived quickly and our food order taken. We had the Carribean salad with shrimp and the buffalo chicken sandwich with fries. The salad looked good and my co-worker... More

We went there because a family member who lives in the area wanted to go for the half price appetizers during happy hour between four and six PM. While the food was good, it certainly can't be called health food. The nachos with chicken were an especially good value with lots of chicken and the toppings placed on each of... More

Service was outstanding! Food portions were enormous and the salsa & chips a great beginning to our meal.
