Chili's has gotten on the band wagon of changing their menus seasonally. Many of the old favorites are on the menu, plus some new and interesting items. One thing I like about Chili's is - if something is no longer on the menu that was a favorite of yours, chances are they can still make it.

As usual the service was fast friendly. Food was well prepared and reasonably priced. Hamburger was cooked as ordered and the chips & salsa was plenty.

Always good, could be cheaper, seem to raise prices a lot, watch for deals. They use to advertise half price appetizers for something like 3 to 7 Mon thru Friday, didn't see flyer on table, but the still do it. 2 for 20 is now 2 for 22, and triple dipper at one time was 9.99, but keeps going up,...

I wouldn't recommend going there Sunday for lunch. They seem to have a cook problem then on a regular basis. Otherwise food is pretty good. Not the cheapest but not terrible.

I love this restaurant, particularly this LOCATION! I've always had excellent service and excellent food. We were there for a birthday celebration - our guest who was from Australia. She was interested in an alcoholic beverage. Gave the waitress her ID, which was shown to the manager (Chili's policy). Unfortunately, the ID did not have enough information for our guest... More

Sat at the bar for a solo lunch. Bartender was friendly and efficient. Helpful in explaining some entree choices. Chain restaurant food can sometimes be so-so. But my dual choice Mexican beef tostada and enchilada were good. A nice added touch was a slice of avocado without incurring an up charge. Only picky complaint was the tostada was half cold....

We love coming to this location because it's convenient when you're shopping along the 173 retail corridor. The food is good and the servers we've had are usually excellent. The two for $20 is a great deal, but we're sad that they removed cheese sticks from the appetizer menu (that menu change causes us to go to their competition at... More

My wife and I planned to go the day before, but we just didn't call ahead. not sure if that would have mattered for just 2 people. The place was packed when we arrived and when we left. The seating system was unique, as the staff was equipped with radios or wireless headsets. This aided in knowing when a table... More

I liked the new Tex-Mex Bowl. I substituted the shrimp for the chicken and the Chipotle dressing was great

Good place to eat. Wife and kids love it. If you get the chips and salsa ask for some more at the end and they send you with a small bag. Service is normally great.
