We had a very long day exploring the caverns. All the restaurants that we wanted to try in Carlsbad were closed. Chili's was right there we enjoyed our dinner. We can never go wrong with their food. There was a huge wait so we sat...More

Clean and friendly store. Great if you’re passing through Carlsbad. Burgers are very good. Travelers beware of other things going on this n Carlsbad. Hotels are double to quadruple market price. They tell me these pricing schemes are not going to change soon (oil drilling...More

A group of us came to Chili's on 12/2/17. They have a great manager and great staff that took care of our dinner for about 23 folks. Food was excellent. We left very happy.

We had supper here about 8 pm on a Saturday night. I think the waitress disliked me because I did not order alcohol. My husband ordered a beer but I think the waitstaff is expected to push the alcoholic drinks. The food was OK. It...More

Service ok, but the food was tasteless, guacamole bland, entrees lukewarm. Would have been better to go to IHOP or Sonic or Subway. However, in Carlsbad, we did not find a decent local or chain restaurant in our 2.5 day stay to visit Carlsbad Caverns,...More

First, they wanted my cell number to put in at the host stand. I told the young lady, "I'll be standing right here (4 feet away)." She persisted, saying "It won't complete without a number," so I gave her a fake number. What's the deal...More

Good service. Good food. It is what we expect from Chili's. We were seated quickly, and the waitress was expedient. The food took the right amount of time, and all was great. Of course, we had the ribs!
