My wife and I travel to Evanston retularly and often eat our arrival meal at this restaurant. The quality of the food has suffered over the past year. It is popular with the locals, but we can only rate it as average food now.

It's a typical chili's. Decent food and decent service. Don't get the tacos though, they give you 3 tiny tacos and afterwards it feels like you didn't eat anything at all. The burgers are decent and a safe bet.

Tried one of the new chicken specials. Had buffalo and blue strips. It was really good. My wife had the two meat fajitas, always good. The margarita was tasty and you really get your money's worth. Nice service. Would go back for sure.

Our family enjoys this restaurant because it has good food at decent prices. Their margaritas are fabulous, and the Mexican entree choices are great too.

Good food, good service. We sat the bar and the service was excellent. Typical Chilli's food, nothing to write home about.

I go to this Chili's at least 1x week for past 10 years. I love their food and especially the margaritas. The food comes out hot and the servers constantly check on you to see if you need anything. The only downside is the change in the appetizers. They use to offer artichoke and spinach dip but now it is... More

One of my favorite salads is the Quesadilla Explosion Salad. It comes with a large chicken breast. It is tasty and quite healthy. I ask for a different salad dressing, and they always accommodate. The service is very good. There is a nice bar area with a number of TV's if you are a sports fan. On the other hand... More

While our food was ok, I wished we had strayed further from our hotel to find dinner our first night. The table was sticky and we had to run our own credit card through a machine at the table. Whatever happened to service? Our server was pleasant enough but nothing special.

we were staying right down the street and didn't want to eat at the hotel so we made our way to Chili's bar and grill. There were 5 of us and everyone was very happy with what they ordered. The bartender was very friendly and made good drinks. Good choice for us!

The food is average and the scene and the bar scene is ok but the salt was unbearable. The chili was salty and had too much cheese. The fries were salty. What is the need of putting so much salt on the food when there is salt on the table? Very disappointing!
