Stopped here this past Tuesday for lunch. Had a half sandwich BLT with fries. It was okay. Not the best not the worse. The one thing I noticed was the lack of sufficient meal time help for a waitstaff, as it seemed that one waitress had one room and the other had the bar area. And they were running around... More

My wife and son in law joined me for dinner here around 7:30 PM Friday night Feb 14th after a long drive from Maine . Yes - it was Friday night & BUSY but despite that we managed to get a table relatively quickly . As a personal note - I prefer a restaurant where the floor plan has some... More

You have to get the salsa & chips appetizer. Thin light chips, warm, and tasty salsa. You can easily eat the whole tray, but don't, take some home for later. Our Mexican is the best we had in years.my beef enchilada and my wife's smothered smoked chicken were just excellent. Our server, Rebecca, was just outstanding!

We went to Chilis on 10/29. We've been there before, but this was the first time we ordered off the $35 menu. The selections were good and the baby back ribs were very good. However we ordered the chips with guacamole only to be told they were out of guacamole. So I asked for sliced avocado and was told "no... More

Not a big fan of chains and it's been a long time since I'd been to Chili's, but it was right next door to our hotel. So why not? We were a large group, so we called ahead and surprisingly we didn't have to wait too long. The service was pretty fast. I had the Fajitas and they were as... More

I go maybe once a week for a nice meal and friendly service. Always a cheerful staff with good food as a reasonable price.
