This was my first time here. Good place. The interior/attire was definitely a classy steakhouse vibe. As soon as I walked in, I was seated. The waitress was attentive and very friendly. She was amazingly helpful...and it felt genuine. I was very impressed. The food was great. No complaints. They proportions were very generous as well. Great selection of wine as well. Reason for the 4 instead of 5 stars...the meat wasn't cooked enough.

Okay so first off. Customer service is this place varies quite a bit. (We went here two times in a span of "one" week) the first time we went there. IT LITERALLY TOOK 2 HOURS TO COOK SIMPLE GOD DANG NOODLES! FREAKING NOODLES!! But all that anger kind of just went away after I tasted the really good "chicken Cajun pasta"Yummy I've only been here a couple times so I can't really go into too much detail about it.

Decent place with decent prices and decent food. Can't say I love it, but it was ok. Curbside is available, which is an advantage.

They've upped their game in the last few years with better and healthy menu choices. Their black beans are still my favorite, however they need to work on their rice (a bit dry). But cheers on keeping their President Margaritas yummy as ever!

I see the menu online: double burger 8.45 and I ordered it by phone, when I pay the bill was 19.64 really? Why? For one burger

When you arrive to K town, you won't see much but a hole in a wall spot, with a line of people outside waiting to get in as if they were waiting inline for a concert. With only limited bar seating you can expect to wait, but the wait isn't that long, it moves fairly quickly. It's worth the wait! The menu is pretty straight forward which is the best, you get exactly what they are known for and you will leave full and with a smile on your face.

My girlfriend and I started coming here when it first opened and loved it since day 1!! It's been fun to watch the menu change and try new things as they appear. Our favorites have been the brussel sprout salad, the pork belly sushi and the rotisserie chicken. We have yet to try something we don't like.

Ordered takeout here last weekend and it was delicious!! I'd been wanting to try their dry fried chicken wings for a while now, and they did not disappoint. We got the chicken wings, green beans, and black bean noodles and everything was fresh and high quality. The black bean noodles were a surprise, with lots of pieces of assorted mix ins (squid, pork, shrimp)! Highly recommend for takeout during shelter in place :)

Delicious clam chowder and great service. The bread bowl was delicious and soft. The chowder was creamy and full of the good stuff. Lots of clams and potatoes along with some veggies. It was delicious.

An incredible spot for easygoing burgers and pooches sort of toll. Their fries are naturally cooked and it is so scrumptious. The staff and the proprietor are pleasant and well disposed to their costumers.

My boyfriend and I descended on Harris' like a pride of lions on a wildebeest carcass. A visit here is basically the San Franciscan version of such a carnivorous smorgasbord.We started the night out with cocktails. HIGHLY recommend the St. Germain Squeeze. It's like candy. It was my boyfriend and my anniversary and nothing says "I love you" like a bloody slab of meat (no vegetarians here, folks). As luck would have it, it's the 25th Anniversary and they have a special prix fix menu with Filet Mignon rossini...and a wine paring option to boot. HEYO!

The food and service is great. We had their Bacon Cheeseburger and Tacos. It was plenty of food at a reasonable price. There wasn't a long wait to be served. I hope you get Britney, she was cheerful and very attentive to our needs. You can use the app to order ahead and get on waitlist for a table. Great location outside of the mall, close to the movie theater.

Two thirds of the time, you get a decent server. But I once had a waitress serving in the bar area, and after she plopped my food down, she never bothered to ask if I needed anything. She didn't come back to my table until some time after I finished. Now I go to another Chili's instead.

We like a lot eating out. Yesterday we found this superb place which friends recommended to us. We had a beautiful evening there with very good meal and an experienced stuff and a great chief cook. We added this restaurant in our phone list and we shall definitely return very soon. We deeply recommend.

Placed order online for pickup which would be ready in 20 min. Food was not ready when I arrived so I waited 15 min (past scheduled ready time). I ordered Ranchero chicken tacos with two sides of broccoli and the Bacon avocado grilled chicken sandwich. Next time, I will skip the tacos which had very little chicken.

Review №26

Always a great deal, my date and I regularly visit and always get the 2 for 25$ dinner deal (i appetizer or 2 side salads, 2 entrees and choice of dessert. I get the sirloin which has 2 side choices.. Mine loaded mashed potatoes, buttered ear of corn and roasted asparagus. My boyfriend ordered the half rack of baby ribs which came with a side order of medium cut french fries. The only complaint I ever have is the food sometimes takes longer than I would like to come out.

Great place to stop for a drink before the movies or for some food after the mall. The food is what you would expect from Chilis and the service is decent. There is about 6 or 7 TVs in the bar area playing different sports so you can normally find the game you are looking for. Gets surprisingly busy on weekends so dont be surprised if you have to wait for a table.

I love Chili's and the food was and is so very good. HOWEVER, last nite our service for a birthday party of 9, was ridiculous. I called to ask if they were able to seat us and would serve birthday cake for us (where do I bring it)? They said YES of course, call back an hour before so they could set up our table. I did, handed the cake and sorbet to the hostess, as instructed. To my surprise, they had to seat another group at our table. So, I observed, they had room to seat another double table, they even had plenty of chairs, but no other unattached tables to put there in that empty space. We did wait, and wait, and wait, with 3 disabled, and 88 year old granny. Our food was so good, our server struggled, (I had told him about the birthday cake), he cleared our plates, then brought our desert, still in the containers, and bags we had brought them in.He offered to bring us plates, but, would he bring everything else, knife, silverware, scoop, people to sing "Happy Birthday"? We left, to serve and sing at home, with our melted sorbet.Yes, we left him a tip, after all, he still served 9 people, and the food was so good.

This review is only for drinks at the bar. I ordered the pineapple blueberry margarita and it was pretty good. I have never been a fan of their food but some of the appetizers are ok. They have remodeled the restaurant and the bartender is super chill. Go for happy hour at 3, drinks and appetizers are on special.

Great scene for tasty texmex. Good place to hang and eat some good food. Quick and friendly service. Bring your appetite because portions are large.

Review №37

Sadly, the labor shortage has caught up with this spot I suspect, both for waitstaff and kitchen. One wait person for whole restaurant at first, then another. Took long times to get water, our orders taken, then food arrival. And again, one person's lunch issue took another time to get resolved. The two lunch salads were pronounced quite good! The chicken enchiladas were dry and difficult to eat for one of us. Soup and salad combo for me was okay, though Caesar salad had clearly been sitting for a while. Music was on pretty loud for this group of seniors to hear each other in a somewhat empty area. It was hard for me to have an issue with the waitress considering the coverage expected by her. Sigh.

Overall the wait was really long. The restaurant was clearly understaffed. Which is unfortunate because the place was busy with a line out the the door. Our server was friendly but was working too many tables to be able to provide adequate service for our party of 6. This restaurant lost out on many opportunities to up sale, refill alcohol and offer desserts which we would've done..food was ok. Poor management for such a great restaurant like chili's and great busy location..this place is losing alot of business. I saw many people get up and leave or turn around at the door.

This is the second time I have gone to Chili's on the weekend and sit at the bar. I don't know the waiter's name because one took our order and the other bartender took care of us. Anyway the bartender did a great job. He is the one with the tattoos and the semi long hair. Anyway the bartender did a great job. Service was great even though it was packed, the waiter was still very attentive. Will be coming back.

Chili's is just not that good to me. I used to love it. I would eat the mushroom swiss fajitas all the time when I was like 12. But the quality has gone downhill so much. Now the only thing I like is the white spinach queso. But its not worth going to Chili's just to get some queso.

Good was ok, our server was horrible, he do no paid attention to our order, he had a bad attitude. He forgot one of the 5 dishes. I think he doesn't have a personality to be a server. Plus hes English was good but he speaks in a guy that was so difficult to understand . Manager show up to apologies for the missing dish and offer it for to go at mo cost. Thank for that.

I took my family to have dinner today. The three of us had a waiter her name was Jessica we had her before but she had a really bad attitude and never not even once smile. So, I thought she changed up her act nope she still had the same attitude and never pay attention to us not even one she was paying attention of two couple more than us not only that I think she was racist because the couple were white and my mom was tan while my dad is white and I'm half and half. So, there two things they should do send her home or fired her.
