What has happened to this chain of restaurants? It seems that all we have been to have really gone down hill. This location too was not good. Restaurant was dirty and food was not that good. Poor quality, cold fries, small portions.......but the waiter was super nice and accommodating

Just visited Chili's again and it was very good. Had the Country (chicken) Fried Steak and it was great with mashed potatoes, corn on the cob and garlic toast. My wife had chicken fajitas and enjoyed them quite alot.

This Chili’s is typical of the Chili’s chain. It has an extensive, reasonably priced menu. The restaurant is clean and the service is excellent. This particular Chili’s is close (within walking distance) of several motels just across the Interstate from the TSU campus. I know I can depend on good food and friendly staff when we find a Chili’s on... More

I love Chili's and the food is fantastic but the staff at this particular one was not very attentive and it took a long time to receive our food. I understand that it was a busy night as it was the weekend but we had to ask twice for our silverware and napkins. We also had to flag down a... More

Their potato soup is lukewarm, prefab cut in squares kind of potato soup...so fake it isn't funny. The dinners are average and not worth the prices. San Marcos has a lot of good places.
