Food is what you'd expect from a large chain and is usually pretty consistent. Restaurant service has been either great or miserable...rarely in the middle. Bad service doesn't seem to coincide with them being busy. I don't visit much anymore because of the inconstancy in service.

Every time you get close to enough points for a free entree they raise the amount. They also forget to give you your points when you get close. Just a tease. You can get free chips but they give free chips in the bar anyway. The rewards system is a fake it's just a come on. The service is excellent... More

Went here for lunch and its nice since they have good food, lots of choices on menu and affordable. There is something for everyone here. Service was fast, friendly and helpful. My chicken sandwich tasted great.

For some reason, chilis changed their menu and beer selections. We used to go there frequently, but no longer. Firestone beer is a local favorite, but the kegs are slightly more expensive, so we can only assume discontinuing it is some sort of bad management cost saving measure. They lost a couple of regular customers. Also the food menu changes... More

When I walked into the bar around 3PM there was no bartender or server for about 10 minutes. Am I suppose to pretend I'm George Jetson and order from the stupid little screen ? Bartender was kind, but martini was dreadful. Label selection non-existence. The fries took their time arriving. Not sure what happened to all the gals who knew... More

We were looking for a decent restaurant close to the Bacara Resort. The food was great, but the service was excellent. Our waitress was very bubbly and friendly, brought a lot of laughs to our table. The cost per portion was very fair.

Stopped here on the way north. Great service and great tasting food. Interesting way to pay, check bill or order more at the table via a table device. Was able to pay the bill, give tip and print at table the receipt. Very good system - want to see more.

Ordered the fajitas. They don't give you enough toppings to put on them. Less than a tablespoon of guacamole, sour cream. Cheese was not enough to fit on a tortilla chip, let alone 3 fajitas. Waited for a long time until anyone even came to the table. Rice was sub par. Beans were mostly water. There was an older man... More

I really like guacamole made fresh tableside. Not very many restaurants will do it and if they do, it is too expensive to be worth it. But not here. Very reasonable price and 3 large avocados were used. You could choose which additional ingredients you wanted included and how much: onion, tomato, jalapeno, salt, cilantro and/or lemon juice. The chips... More
