I think chilli's is a consistent place, across the different locations. Espanola seem to lack service personnel. The last few times there has been no hostess. We have a couple of favorite waitresss, and the were slammed yesterday. Food was good, meat was a little rare and loaded mash potatoes were sticky. But most was good.

Espanola's Chilies is a good place to eat and meet, BUT this afternoon, people were walking in and standing in the doorway, because no one was at the front desk to greet and seat them.

Going to a chain restaurant should offer some assurance of quality of service and taste of food. When it doesn't turn out it is especially disappointing. My son could cook a burger when he was 12. It's beyond me how a restaurant cook can burn a beef patty to shoe leather. When you add cold, soft French fries and an... More

Haven't had a wait whenever we've gone. Sometimes service can be spotty, even though they have multiple servers for your table.

This is the only sit down chain restaurant in the region, and that would be enough for a good review. But they go beyond just being there. The entire staff is cheerful and ready to help in any way. The food is fresh and the portions are large. Free refills on such treats as mango and strawberry lemonade! It's always... More

Went to eat lunch there with my daughter. Watch the waitress run her hand through her hair and then pick food off of my daughter's plate and then bring it to the table. When asked to speak to a manager he went and spoke to the waitress. Came back to the table and told me that the waitress said she... More

Let's face it, chain restaurant. The food usually the same at all locations. The only thing that can make a chain stand out is the service. This restaurant excels in service. Our favorite server is a lady named Audrey. She makes us feel at home every visit. She's taken the time to learn about our family and about us. She... More
