Usual welcome and atmosphere of restaurant chain. Extensive menu, some dishes good size and tasty. Others quite small and only warm, not hot (temperature). Biggest complaint no prices on drink menu? When I asked for prices of beers I was told "it depends on the type of beer and the size." No s.... sherlock! When I asked how much for... More

I don't like to write bad reviews but I feel compelled to write this one. Last night was our second time at this particular Chili's. The first time we were served DAY OLD ribs that were so shriveled up they looked petrified! Our server said they were yesterday's ribs warmed up. Last night we decided to give them another chance....

Their chili has problems. Stated simply, it is seasoned with too much salt. This makes the chili unpalatable. When I brought this to the attention of the restaurant, they failed to acknowledge this and would do nothing to please me, their customer. If you're in this type of business, you can't treat paying customers like this. There are far better... More

on August 15, 2014 at 4:10 I had been to this location several times before because it's right around the corner from where I live and I didn't feel like driving to Chula Vista to get a good Chili's meal. Every time I come here I get service that i'm not pleased with. However today's service took the cake. First,... More

Went for a quick drink and appetizers before going to a party. Sat at the bar area to watch some college football. My wife had some potato soup that tasted like it was straight from a can. I had boneless buffalo wings that were dry and reminded me of jerky with some Franks red hot sauce.....Place is great for a... More

Haven't been to a Chili's in years. The food is a lot better than I remembered and our waitress was particularly nice.

Decided to order some food online from home one weekday night. When I went to pick it up, it was ready on time and I was greeted by a very nice and upbeat female employee (wish I got her name cause she did really great). She went through each item one by one to make sure it was exactly as... More

Located outside our hotel. Nice to just walk over and have dinner and walk back. Plus, not overly crowded, which can be a problem at times. Food was good, service was okay.

I had a lunch date with my husband at Chili's and had a great experience. The service was excellent and the food was delicious. Reasonable lunch menu. I must tell you that there are always lots of vehicles parked outside of the restaurant, which is a good sign. Oh...and the restaurant was packed when we went there for a lunch.... More
