Chose ChiliU because our son was craving poutine which ended up not being so great. The chili, however, was really good and the one I chose wasn’t spicy which is exactly what I wanted.

Love the different types of chili as well as other food choices. Chili has a lot of choices to add to your dish and most do not cost any extra.

I thought it was great. We started with the chorizo egg rolls which were wonderful! Then I had the Texas chili over fried rice. I had a whole bunch of toppings. We sat outside on the patio. I thought the decor was very fun too!...More
