We have been to several Chili's and the Crystal Lake location is the best. The staff is the most friendly of any location and food is always hot and tasty. We drive to this one instead of going to the local one.

Chili's is a dependable stop when traveling. The food is good and generally consistent from location to location. Crystal Lake's restaurant was clean, the server was friendly and efficient, the location was ideal.

Stopped for lunch today and really enjoyed the Wednesday Special hand-crafted burger and fries for $6.00 dollars. Service, quality and efficient (fast) service was very satisfying. Definitely make this a stop on your way for lunch or dinner.

So if you want to go out for dinner on a Thursday night and not spend a bunch of cash this may be your new place. Who has not been to a Chili's anyway ? Wide assortment of food for all ages. We get there before the dinner rush about 5:30 or so. The 2 for $20 menu is always... More

Always go to Chiles when we can't make up our minds what we're in the mood for. Can never go wrong ordering the Chicken Fajita's and Presidente Margarita's. We like sitting in the bar booth. Great Atmosphere. Always great service.

service was a little slow but friendly but this is obviously a place for kids at lunch. There were as many kids as adults and several small children did a bit of screaming which didn't add to the atmosphere. Chicken fajitas where small portion but good. Chili was soupy and no beans. I'll look elsewhere next time.

We eat st this Chili's probably once a month. We have always had a good experience. Food is consistently hot and tasty. Service is friendly and on a weekend the staff is always hustling. The manager flies around filling drinks and making sure people are happy.
