Hispanic menu, American Style. Tasty and not expensive. Very good wait staff but the building is way to cold! We ordered one meal of three items and it was plenty of food for the two of us. Complimentary chips and salsa. A sports bar atmosphere with a variety of channels on at the same time.

We usually don't frequent chain restaurants, but visitors to our area will, and we found nothing wrong with this place. Wife ordered the loaded boneless wings and I the Southern Smokehouse Burger. The wings were tasty and not at all greasy. The burger was...large, but that was not unexpected. Just enough fries were added as the sandwich was more than enough. Price was $14 per person as we just drank iced tea. Special mention to the greeter. Didn't catch his name but he sure would put the patrons is a pleasant frame of mind with his friendly banter with the guests.

Slow and food was cold. Out of all the awesome places in Sarasota, why is this open? Avoid at all costs

As a party of 14 coming here to eat dinner for someone's Sweet 16 birthday, we had called earlier in the afternoon to make reservation for 7pm. When we arrived, the hostess then had some staff move around tables to seat all of us, which took a long time and created a jam as other people came to the restaurant. When they brought us to the area, they had the tables set so that two people would be facing the wall. Yet the allowed us to rearrange the tables. Richard, our waiter was definitely a trooper and very patient as in the party, we had several children age 10 - 16 who are picky eaters. The birthday girl is a vegetarian and ordered the Southwestern chicken salad without the chicken, and then the teenage boys have even more bizarre orders yet Richard was truly a trooper. The food was good, basic Chili's food. We had to wait a long time for the food to come out, as we were told two other large orders were ahead of us. This pretty much shows how popular this place is. Come much earlier to eat or if you are hungry, be sure to order appetizers like we did.

Disappointing visit explains why there is barely anyone here. The lunch quesadilla is greasy to the point the plate is greased and the tortillas are drenched. Could not eat them, unfortunately. The loaded potato soup was good, tasty but luke warm. The cheese dressing did not melt. There are 3 servers and a manager that I observed. The manager was walking by eating on the floor. My server was friendly but clearly stretched to cover too much.
