Went there with four other people. Some loved their food, some though that the food was spicier than it needed to be to make it flavorful. The service was good, and the restaurant was clean, but would probably try a different restaurant in Carlsbad, next time I was in town.

Our first night in town we were exhausted and starving. We came upon Chili's and stopped. The service was good and food was good. We enjoyed ordering off the healthier portion of the menu.

I've been to several Chili's through the year as I travel frequently for work. This is a smaller Chili's and they are what they are. Most of them the food average to above average so for me it comes down to service. Although I was quickly seated on a busy night I had to ask for a glass of water... More

Chili's is Chili's, not much of a difference from one location to the next. However, the waitress was particularly attentive and efficient.

Stopped here for dinner one night on our trip to Carlsbad. We decided to split a fajitas dinner as we weren't very hungry. It was very good (chicken and steak) and more than enough for the two of us. Service was attentive.

We were in the area after busing the national parks. Our hotel was across the street so this was an easy choice. The service was friendly and quick. Our food was good with co complaints. Pretty much what we expected at a chilis restaurant.

We almost never go to chain restaurants, especially when there are local favorites to try. However we were tired and the Chili's was right in front of our hotel. We walked down to dinner and we were pleasantly surprised. We did not have reservations and they were full, so I gave the hostess my phone number and we walked around.... More

Our waitress was not friendly. Half way through the meal she brought the checks and said I will be right back too pick those up. I guess if you are not local you are not welcome. Food wasn't that good either. Will never go back to this hostile environment.
