We went here expecting it to be like at home. The food was OK but the restaurant was absolutely filthy. I'm surprised it isn't closed down by the sanitation department. Our waiter didn't know if they had hot tea and when pressed he finally went and asked another waiter. Food was not fresh nor was it hot. Luke warm at... More

For some reason this location has been getting bad reviews lately. We arent sure why. The staff is friendly and responsive. Although the food isnt gourmet it is decent and usually close to the description.

I like to eat at chilies but none can compare to the location in Calallen Texas. They must have a good manager because they are on top of their game. We've tried other locations and the food and service is not good. I'll stick with the Calallen chili grill.

We arrived, we were seated quickly in the bar area, and our waiter took our drink order right away. The restaurant was a little dirty, but not too bad. We got our drinks quickly, the draft beer was very cold and fresh. We got our appetizer quickly and the guacamole was very good. Really, the only issue I had with... More

Chili's has been a go to for a long while. But lately they have fallen off considerably. We travel a lot and have always included Chili's for a good and reasonably priced option. There prices are still great. The service has been the problem. On our visit to this particular Chili's we experienced extremely long wait time at 2pm. Not... More

My family stopped at Chili's for lunch before we checked out the local mall. The food was good. They have lunch specials, which is what I ordered. I got a bowl of loaded potato soup and a chicken ranch quesadilla for $7. They have touch screen pads at every table, you can pay on it as soon as you are... More

I Love Chili's and when I am out of town on business this is always my fall-back place to feel like I am at home. This particular Chili's however was by far the worst restaurant I have been into in Corpus! It smells really bad on the inside...the food was horrible (and since I am a Chili's regular I know...

Had dinner at the local Chilis. We were seated in the back by the kitchen. Bad: The salmon was over cooked, the asparagus tasted like soapy water, and the buffalo chicken salad came without the buffalo sauce (oops). There were flys buzzing us throughout the meal and although staff watched us swatting at them, they made no comments. Good: The... More

Sat at a dirty table with no napkins or silverware. Appetizer delivered with meal. Waiter did not return to ask about refills or dessert.

It was a very enjoyable experience. I like their new menu with updated food selections. They also have made the interior much more attractive!
