Chili's is convenient, consistent, and nice quality for the price. On our recent visit we had a great waitress who added local color to this chain restaurant. We were very comfortable and, when we have no particular yen for special foods, Chili's is a go-to fall back place for a tasty reasonable meal. My wife always likes the baby back... More

Ample parking, a few handicap parking area's, a typical Chili's chain which serves above average food, ample servings, offers two for one drinks, pleasant atmosphere, etc...The only reason I rate this restaurant as AVERAGE is the length it took from ordering our drinks to the time they were delivered and the delay in our orders of food. We were visited... More

Wait staff and hostess are always welcoming and friendly. Menu is varied and they are willing to accommodate requests. Our wait person was knowledgeable about ingredients. Prices are reasonable so we can go there regularly.

We walked in and no one was at the hostess desk nor could we find her. After a few minutes she came around from the wall near the bar and kitchen. She looked at us and told us she would be right with us. Then proceeded to take an order from the only couple sitting in the dining area. She... More

I would imagine I would have had a great lunch there for the steak and others on the menu. However, the steak was not as good as I had thought. The servers were friendly and great in serving us. He was quick to our requests. I ordered the most ordered steak on medium well level of steak but it came... More

Small parking area but plentiful parking spaces near by. Neither of us used the bathroom facilities so no comments can be made. Server, male, was pleasant and personable and finally when the meal arrived it was tasty but the wait for it since the waiter took our order was way too long. A shorter time interval would have been better... More

Stopped in after a long drive...I was hungry and thirsty and I know what to expect as they are consistently great. I am an ice tea drinker and they always have fresh ice tea. My other favorite is the quesadilla explosion salad and again it was consistent with other Chili's I have visited. The service is usually very good too...this... More

This Chili's was like all Chili's. Friendly staff and a clean lace to eat and drink. What is nice about a chain you know what you are going to get for the most part. Bartender very friendly and did not hesitate to greet us when we sat down or to come back for refills.

We had taken our car to be serviced nearby, and since it was lunch time we walked over to Chili's. We did not realized that it was "Two for Tuesday", and when we ordered our beer 4 came out instead of 2! Rather shocking...but the server was right when she told us they would stay cold. In retrospect we would... More

I like this restaurant because you can always depend on good quality food served at fair prices. The portions are large and the servers are friendly and professional. The menu is extensive. Most people will find something they like. Beware, vegetarians, there's very little for you. I don't like this chain's move toward us losing our privacy. There are "computer"... More
