We do not usually go to franchise restaurants as a norm. We like the more local or Mom & Pop ones. We've been to Chili's twice since we were looking for a place to grab a quick bite. Once was on a Wednesday and the other time was a Friday. Both around dinnertime. We did not have to wait to... More

Even though this is a franchise, the food quality was great. Was waited on quickly and took an appropriate amount of time.

Clean, trendy atmosphere, great service and fresh, hot foods combine for a very good dining experience here. Try the chips and queso. Very warming. MarcyDiner tantrum scale of 5/5-no screaming kids.

We stopped here for dinner while spending the night next door. We ate at the bar and had pretty good food even though it looked nothing like the photos on the menu. The bar tender was very nice and pretty much ran the show in that area.

Traveling from California to Massachusetts. After a long day on the road we decided on Chili's and weren't disappointed. Good food and excellent service here. Our server, Maddie, was very friendly and welcoming and we had excellent service. They were very accommodating when we asked for a plain grilled chicken breast for our 2 dogs (the dogs rated the chicken... More

You can get this quality of food in a lot of places for not much money. It was truly blah as far as I was concerned. If you want Mexican food, find a place with more imagination and zest.

Chili's never disappoints. We ordered the classic nachos combo, quesadilla salad and chicken enchiladas. All the food was very tasty and there was plenty of it. Our server, Esada, was very efficient and very personable.

We ate here for supper since it was Saturday night and all the steak houses were full. The food was good and the service was O.K. Great if you are wanting a decent meal at a good price and don't want to wait forever.

We travel to the US a lot and used to really enjoy Chili's - on our last trip we had a really bad experience which made us reluctant to go there again but so glad that we did. This Chili's is clean, well staffed - we had a great server in Caden and the food was incredibly fresh, well cooked... More
