The food is pretty good here, always has good presentation too. But it's so messy every where I just don't get it. The walls, the blinds, the windows...it actually grosses me out when I'm sitting there. I try to not look around. Like one night when you close...someone clean up the walls, etc...I don't get it. I only go here... More

Granted I have not been to Chili's for about 10yrs, I still figured the fajitas would be the same. Was I WRONG. They were terrible. A gob of onions, 2 pcs of red pepper, and 2 pcs of green pepper, and a small chicken breast sliced paper thin on top.No sauce and the worst thing I have eaten in a... More

You need to come on a Monday afternoon between 4 and 5. I know, most people don't eat at that time. But plan for it, and you'll be glad you did. Because there is no wait, the service is reasonable, and the food specials are terrific. First, they have $5 Presidente margaritas! That alone is worth the visit. But then... More

Went to Chili's for a birthday on Sunday April 24. Food was excellant and service was very good. Price was very reasonable for 5 people. If you're dining in VALPARAISO check it out. You will be satisfied.

To say Chili's is a restaurant does all other restaurants disservice. The typical food is simply ok and passable. Too salty and too much additives which dilute the overall experience. But what really marks this restaurant as being so poor, is the lackluster service by the (few) waitresses. Amazing how inattentive they can be. Sitting there waiting makes us all... More

After over 45 min of wait, we got to order. The food was just OK, nothing to miss and just like an average mexican food. El Santo is much better for the same price and the quality. The Fajita was not upto the mark and the worst thing was we were missing El Santos fajita while having this!

We enjoy chili's for a light meal in the evening. Always have something to take care of your appetite. My wife is on a no spice diet and they are always able to accommodate her request.

Comfortable, good waitress, no wait. We went on a Thursday night and had no wait for the bar seating.Food was good and moderately priced. Been here before and service and food are always consistent. They change there menu sometimes (not real often) but always nice variety.

Fast service, big menu with a lot of quality food that anyone could enjoy. Price was average. Everything was good. Literally nothing I could complain about.

Very long wait, service is so so, some are good and others are pretty bad about getting to you. The food is hit or miss.
