First, the food. We were enticed by an email that advertised a half rack of baby back ribs, fries, a side salad and mini-molten dessert. All for $10.99. We went at 5:30 and the place was almost deserted. Our waiter escorted us to an empty side section and we ordered. My husband traded out the fries for a potato soup, a wonderful cheesy delight. So far so good. Our side salads arrived, with delicious lime dressing. Great. Another waitperson quickly ushered two tables worth of diners in, and put them directly on either side of our booth.. Boxed in with squirmy screaming children, we moved with our food to another table. The children got up and quickly ran in circles around all of the aisles, unchecked by parents or restaurant staff. Our ribs arrived and were tasteless with heavy smears of sauce on them. We were hungry and didn't complain, but we'd never order their famous ribs again. Lots of really good BBQ elsewhere in Marietta. Finally the "mini-molten." Outrageously good, chocolate lava cake with a scoop of vanilla ice cream, and drizzles of chocolate and caramel sauces. It almost made up for the mediocre ribs and unruly children. All in all, it will be a long time before we go back to this restaurant.

We stopped by to meet a friend and got there before she did recently. Since we thought it would just be the three of us, we got a small table and waited as our friend was running a little behind. We then got a message from our friend that she was bringing her family so we needed a larger table and they were very helpful at this Chili's in helping us find a bigger table quickly even though the place was crowded. The food was good and the service was very good. We would definitely dine here again if the opportunity presented itself.

The service was pretty good, and the place is popular. The Quesadilla was good. Their chips and salsa are the best on the street: thin and salty with mild salsa.

We often go there when we want a quite eat. As the title indicates, they are always changing their menu. On more than one occasion they did't have what we expected and it was a struggle selecting what to eat. We are one good - one not so good on those occasions. Still, except on Friday's you can get in and get seated in a reasonable time.

Our server Britney did a good job. She kept our glasses refilled and stopped by to check on us regularly. There were three in our party. Unfortunately one of the orders was input correctly into the system, but read wrong by the kitchen which caused one person to eat at a different time. We had the two for $20 deal which was very cost effective. It includes an appetizer and two entrees. I had the steak and my daughter had the chicken crispers. Each came with two sides. My husband had the grilled chicken burrito which was huge (half came home). The server comped the dessert because of the order error which was a nice touch. The dessert was the molten lava cake which was large and delicious.
