We have eaten at this chili's at least a million times. We still go back so that must say something. The chicken crispers are a big hit. The service is usually very good.

Service was poor, didn't fill drinks, missing sides to dishes. I had the half rack of ribs and broccoli the ribs were small and I was still hungry after eating them. Something was not right with the country fried steak, hubby felt ill after eating some of it. Food was cold. Received only half our order, had to wait 10... More

Our waiter was great. He's a new student at KU & was very personable & provided good service. My husband had a small steak & mashed potatoes, which he liked very much. I tried out the Skinny Patron Margarita. I wasn't sure about the sugar-free Triple Sec, but the margarita was great. Definitely worth the 110 calories. I had a... More

Why does Independence have so many mediocre restaurant venues? I don't know either, but maybe because no one cares enough to make it special. Los Cabos makes it special maybe try there next time or this time if you are just looking.

My first impression of this restaurant was "old and dirty". My daughter (vegetarian) and I (Paleo) were on a shopping trip and stopped in here for a late lunch around 2:00. We were told it would be a 10 minute wait. I went to the restroom while we were waiting, and almost suggested we leave. The floors were nasty, the... More

We had a group of six and went on a Tuesday night at six. We were seated right away and there were many open tables. The waters came right away but our drinks and food took for ever. The margarita's were a great price and were on special every day. The light menu was delicious and all six of us... More

Got home from a long day and though we would unwind a bit. Headed to another restaurant, which was very packed, so thought about this place (where there's no fighting) and it made sense. Expereinced a little waiting period but seated us in a very timely manner. We tried the 2 For $20 with the Mango Chicken. Really very good... More

Are friend arrived early but by 5:20pm on Saturday the wait was one hour. They had plenty on open tables but seemed to be short on staff. The service was even slow and lacked attention. Either get your act together or close your doors.

The wait to get in wasn't too bad but the waiting area was bad. The servers did an excellent job but the food there was not as good as other chilis I have eaten at. I waited 45 minutes after being seated for my waitress to come tell me they ran out of RIBBS. So I ordered a chicken fried... More
