I had a very good meal with drinks at the bar. The chips and salsa were good as I expected. The bartender was very nice and chit chatted with the customers. My food was good, hot and tasty. The place wasn't packed at first but it really started to get crowded the closer to dinner time. Nice experience and would... More

This is a typical chain restaurant. The service was very good. Waitress was pleasant and very good at checking with our table to see if we needed anything. One disappointing thing was there was no flexibility as to changing side dishes. Also it was extremely noisy. Very hard to even have a conversation with the people at your own table.

We had the ribeyes , fajitas, Caribbean salad and triple dippers. All was delish. We also had Chris for our waiter. He gave us fabulous service. Great time! We did have to wait 15 minutes to get our tables set up so he brought us three appetizers to make up for it!

Husband had a spicy but really good tilapea. I opted for the Margarita chicken which was tender and very good. My salad was ample but had some frozen cucumbers and touches of lettuce which looked to have been thawing also. Server brought the wrong dressing but was quick to correct his mistake. We saw the monitor on the table and... More

Went to dinner late on a Saturday evening about 10:30 and hands down the worst experience I've had at a Chili's. I ordered pork tacos and the waitress brought them out 3 times and they never got them right. I finally gave up and had to let my coworker finish eating so I could go grab some fast food on... More

Stopped by on a Thursday for a beer and light snack. Bartender seemed more interested in playing grabaxx with the waitresses than servicing customers and its not like they were busy, I was the only one in the place. Which at 5 PM says something in it's self. When I finally got my soup it wasn't hot...come on!

Each time we visit this store, we get young, dismissive, condescending, arrogant male waiters and they must promote from within b/c the managers are the steroid versions of the waiters, only Creepier.

My friend and I hadn't seen each on about 6 months. We met there and had a great meal and good service. It was a relaxing place to spend time catching up.
