After a busy morning at the Carlsbad Caverns, we rolled into town ready for a big lunch. I ordered the 3 items - 2 enchiladas and a taco, served with beans and rice. My hubby had the ribs and fries. We had no room for dessert! We enjoyed the wonderful flavours and could barely find room for the generous portions.... More

Food was good, but when you order out, it appears they are under staffed. I waited a long, long time for an order, twice, that I had called in 30 minutes prior to pick up.

This place was really crowded. But we were lucky enough got a spot in the bar area. Our waitress was super friendly. We got the table side guacamole. It was surprisingly really tasty. Our orders were all correct and good.

We ate at this Chili's our first night after arriving in Carlsbad. We normally look for unique locally owned restaurants when we travel, but we got into town late, and just wanted something easy and quick. The Chili's was located directly in front of the Hampton we were staying at - quick walking distance. Compared to the Chili's in our... More

In the past I have had trouble with other chili locations. They would be dirty, food would be cold, there would be bugs, or rude staff. There are not an abundance of choices for sit down restaurants in Carlsbad, so after some prodding, I decided to give this Chili's a try. I probably will not visit any other Chili's location...

We visited this chili's in February and our experience was not very good. The food was ok but the service we received was very bad. Our waiter got our order wrong not once but twice and seemed to have an attitude problem. Needless to say we will not be visiting there again.

After trying several other restaurants in the area and being disappointed at the cleanliness and food, we were delighted to find a name that we were familiar with. Chili's offered great service, excellent food and a fair price. Good job Chili's!

We ordered two turkey blt sandwiches. The bread was not only thin and cheap but burned. Their turkey seemed to be cheap deli meat. Stay away from their sandwiches.

I'm OK with the fact that we had to wait. We were told 20 min but waited 40. Service was very slow. Waitress was pleasant but not on top of things. Had to ask for refills more than once. My order was incorrect. The food was mediocre to poor. They even ran out of forks when we got our dessert.... More
