I have been a resident of Gainesville Florida since 1985 and I have been a big fan of this Chili's since it opened. We always enjoyed great food, atmosphere and service until lately. The last couple of times we have come we have had average food and service until today. Today we had the worst food and service ever. The... More

My wife and I stopped in for dinner while staying near the UF campus. We were quickly seated and the waitress took our drink orders. Since we were in the mood for Mexican food, we both ordered the burritos. I got the prime rib and my wife the chicken. They were good size portions with a side of black beans.... More

Went here with my wonderful girlfriend and our friend and I must say, it was a fantastic time. I got some chicken quesadillas, my beautiful woman got a Caribbean salad, and our friend got cheese fries. 10/10 would highly recommend!

Haven't been here in a while. Stayed in Gainesville overnight. Thought chilis would be a great choice...wrong. Waitress was passive aggressive, brought me the wrong food after a lengthy wait (and they were not busy), did not apologize or compensate with even a mere free bowl of chips while we waited again. Place was piled with dirty dishes on tables,... More

We have eaten here on occasion. This time oh my. Quick service initially getting drinks and orders. We waited for food (was busy so no big deal). I had an enchilada with salad, beans and rice. Hubby had fajitas. After waiting a while the waitress finally bought a salad but it had wrong dressing and onions???? Requested salad without onions... More

Wanted to take my kids here as they have never been and we grew up getting fajitas and southwestern egg rolls. Always considered it one of the better chains. Our food was brought after people who got there after us and ordered after us with no apology or explanations. It was moderately busy but not too bad. We didn't see... More

Years ago the Archer road Chili's was our go-to place for fajitas, so we went back recently. Yes, the décor has been updated and the service was fine, but our meal wasn't like the old days. Instead of sizzling strips of beef and chicken, the meats were cubed. We felt like they'd been poured out of a bag. Since we... More
