Chilis Restaurant Review and $50 Gift Card Giveaway!


Being the foodie that I am, I really enjoy going out to eat. Food to me is like pen and paper to Shakespeare. Needless to say, I was pretty excited when Chili's asked me to review their new 2 for $20 menu. It had been a couple years since I last went to Chili's so I was excited to try it out.


Since my husband is deployed right now, I decided to go while my family was here to visit me and Baby S. We were greeted at the door by the hostess and were seated quickly. I would like to stress how great our waitress was! She was on top of our drinks, made sure everything tasted great and brought our many requests for ranch dressing with a smile. That alone makes me want to head back to Chilis! It is not often that I go to a restuarant that has such cheerfull staff.


We really wanted to try out their many options so we each ordered from their new menus. My sisters decided to order from their 2 for $20 menu, this comes with an appetizer (1/2 order size) and 2 entrees. For the appetizer they decided on the Texas Cheese Fries, minus the bacon. This didn't last long, we all dived in and scarfed it down in record time!


For the entrees H ordered the Country Fried Chicken Crispers w/ French Fries and Corn and S ordered the Original Chicken Crispers w/ French Fries and Corn. Both of my sisters raved over their Chicken Crispers. They were not over greasy, they were hot and they were, most imporantly, CRISPY!



My mother and I decided to order from their summer menu. I ordered the Avocado Burger and my Mom decided on the Chicken and Steak Fajitas. Can I just say that this was one of the best burgers I have ever had! I must confess that I think of it often and can't wait to go back and order it again. Cooked to perfection with creamy avocado slices and avocado ranch, what more could you ask for? My mom loved her fajitas. They were flavorfull and tender, you could hear them sizzling as our waitress came to our table.


Overall, Chilis has produced an affordable, tasty menu that is perfect for a family dinner or a night out with your honey. We were able to feed 4 people for under $50 (4 entrees and an appetizer)! We had so much fun tasting eachothers food and bragging over who's tasted best. The atmosphere was fun and the surroundings weren't too loud. Baby S even got in a nap! If you haven't been to Chili's in a while, I think it's about time you got reaquanted!
