Chili's Restaurant Review: This chain draws families and a younger crowd to its colorful restaurants. The Tex-Mex theme is played out in Saltillo-tiled floors, Mexican-tiled tables, ceiling fans and the usual artifacts. One running theme is coyote tracks strategically embedded in the floor tiles of every Chili's. The restaurants serve premium margaritas and feature all the usuals: nachos, wings, chili con queso. Fajitas, ribs and burgers dominate the menu, but you can get a veggie burger or grilled chicken, too. Calorie counters can stick to the "Lighter Choices" menu, which includes fat grams and calorie totals. If you’re not worried about your waistline, the skillet chocolate chip cookie or chocolate brownie sundae await. Ask about dinner for two for $20, or the lunch combos, priced at $6, $7 or $8, if you want to indulge for less.
