Stopped for dinner. Got chicken fajitas. The lime burnt my fingers...the chicken was cold! I knew something was wrong when my dish wasn't sizzling like usual. Waitress took food back to Heat it properly, but it still sucked. This chain seems to be on the decline :(

My wife and I stopped by this particular Chili's this evening. Service was extremely slow even though they weren't busy. The Texas rub on my ribs made them unedibile. Our server who appeared to be under the influence of something never even asked why the food was uneaten! DISAPPOINTING Atleast the soup was good.

This restaurant is a stand-alone structure located north on Fowler Avenue close to University Mall. The appearance looks inviting and inside looks new. We had lunch. Service was friendly and adequate. My wife ordered Chicken Fajitas. She did not like the taste or consistency of the chicken. For the most part, it lacked any spices. She now regrets not ordering...

We came here a few times as we were working in the area. There was a problem with two of our steaks which were cut wrong. When we told the waitress she felt we should just switch our meals even though we ate some of them. We only returned one and 30 minutes later we're still waiting. When the meal... More

I was not real impressed with this Chilli's! I was here in Tampa on business when I went there. Had to be the dirtiest Chilli's I have been in. The floors were filthy, tables weren't picked up and cleaned and it wasn't that busy! Either the manager didn't care or there wasn't one! Won't be going back next time in... More

Everything about this place was terrible. I should have looked at the other reviews before we came but we had a gift card that I wanted to use. Service was horrendous. We had to wait about 10 minutes before the hostess came and that was after we asked several staff to track her down. And when she did show up,... More

Went on a Friday night. No surprises, it was crowded. A little long wait for food, but portions were big as always. Waitress was very helpful, kept our soft drinks and ice teas full. No complaints.

Ate there after a full day at Busch Gardens. Food was lovely and a good price. Ask for Heather to be your server. She was amazing; Friendly, attentive and welcoming.
