Go here often. Love their classic nachos!! Makes a meal. My spouse often gets the Smothered Burrito. Large entree. Wait staff are excellent --- especially in bar area. Noisy but typical for sports bar and casual dining anywhere. Very busy on weekends as are most restaurants in Champaign Illinois

We got here about 45 minutes before closing but everyone was friendly and welcoming (they weren't rolling their eyes or looking at the clock). Our server, Kennedy, was fantastic! The food was wonderful and the prices were good. We would definitely go back!!

We arrived at 11 to pick up food and take it to family at the hospital. They were tired of hospital food while they stayed with their child. Chili's offered a broad selection of food perfect for the weary and hungry. We ordered two salads, an old timer and a margarita bowl. The food was quick to be prepared and... More

Loved the place - the ambience , the service, the food all are outstanding. I had the newly introduced fresh peach margarita - was out of the world ! The servings are large so you may want to check what you order!

We often stop here when out shopping or running errands in the area. We were seated promptly and wait staff arrived quickly. Server had a trainee but the only delay was on refill for my soda. Food good. Easy at table check out kiosk. We almost never use them but it was a busy lunch hour. Interestingly, a request for... More

Restaurant was NOT busy. Took 40 minutes to get our food after we ordered! Finally brought my husband's steak, but no steak sauce, and no Texas toast that he ordered. Waitress didn't come back for another 20 minutes. Had to go find someone's to get steak sauce. Asked for the Texas toast when our waitress finally returned...took 20 MORE minutes... More
