Went here went a friend after running at Whiting Ranch. The steak was very good. The drinks also were great. It has been many years since I have been to a Chili's and I think things are better.

Our three single adult children were all home at the same time and we went to Chili's. The atmosphere was conducive to good conversation, fun times, and a little teasing of dad as I figured out the digital ordering device on the table. Had a great time, great food, definitely plan to go back with just the wife.

We went (family of 6) for a birthday. Despite having LOADS of free tables and loads of staff milling about they took so long to find us a table (15 mins) we left without eating.

Lets face it, if you go in to a Chili's you know what you're getting. It is never remarkable, but as chain restaurants go it's satisfying and reliable.

I loved the bacon cheeseburger and blended strawberry margarita. However, I did not like the appetizer I ordered. It was a cheese dip with beef but the dip was not cheesy at all, it was more like broth. Definitely not what I was expecting when I ordered it.

I ate here for lunch today with my daughter. We shared the appetizer platter with southwest eggrolls, chicken strips and potato skins. Every thing about it was bad. The eggrolls were half filled, the chicken was swimming in grease and the potato skins were so thin with hardly any cheese. The service was very slow, but the waiter, Miguel, was... More

While a chain Chilis still offers great value, food and service. The 2 for $20 is a prime example. You get a appetizer @ a choice of certain entrees. We like sitting in the bar area, always great service and the TV's have our local sporting events on. Great menu choices and food consistently very good. Location from local hotels... More

They're a big chain. The food is the same in FL as it is in CA. If that's a good thing to you, you'll enjoy it.
