My First Giveaway – $50 Chili’s Restaurant Gift Card

UPDATE: The winner is [email protected] Congratulations! Enjoy your meal out!

Our family went to Chili’s restaurant just recently to try out their newly revamped menu. We had only been to Chili’s once a few years ago, but we were very impressed with the new menu when we went this time and plan to go there more often.

I had the Asian Salad. I am not a big salad lover, but I loved this salad. It was piled high with lettuce and napa cabbage. Grilled chicken slices topped the salad, and carrots, edamame and cilantro were nestled inside. The peanut sauce was delicious and did not have an overpowering peanut butter taste.

My son ordered the Steakhouse Sandwich with seasoned fries. His sandwich came on a softy, chewy pita bread and was stuffed with sirloin steak, mushrooms, provolone cheese and arugula. He enjoyed the taste of his sandwich. He normally does not care much for beef, but this beef was tender and well-prepared; it was so good he ate the entire meal. (And he is only 6!)

My husband decided to be decadent and get the Southern Smokehouse Bacon Burger. Definitely not for every day consumption, this hearty burger was served with thick slices of bacon, smoked cheddar, onion strings and ancho-chile BBQ sauce. The meat was juicy and tender, and the maple bacon slices blended perfectly with the rest of the sandwich.

The only drawback to our visit was that it seemed to take quite a long time to get our food. My 20 month old daughter was tired and hungry, so that might have made the wait seem longer. However, our server was very nice and offered to get her some juice to tide her over until the food came. Once the food arrived, it was delicious.

Another enhancement to our visit was Chili’s new Ziosk system. This small screen device sits on each table. Diners can watch movie trailers among other things while they are waiting for their food. Patrons can even print off their bill when they are ready to go and pay right at the table with a gift card or credit card. I absolutely loved this feature! We dine with three kids, two of them under two. We never know when their patience will run out, and I hate having to flag down the server. This new system eliminates that completely. Diners can even choose to print out their receipt or send it to their e-mail.

  23. Oh, this is SOOOOOO easy: The Classic Bacon Burger, but add avocados to it. And instead of fries, get the Smashed Potatoes which come two ways: w/ cheese and crumbled bacon on top, or gravy. My favorite way is to get it with BOTH on top! Talk about mmmm, mmmm, good! I'm missin' my Chili's!

  24. I usually get their Fajitas but I think I would try the Margarita grilled chicken this time.

    kristisdeals1 at yahoo dot com

  25. I would order the Chicken Fajitas – yum! They have great tortilla chips and salsa, too.

  29. The FAJITA TRIO sounds good. I always have such a hard time picking between chicken and beef. This way I wouldn't have to.

  39. I always order the Mushroom Jack Fajitas (even though they aren't on the menu anymore, I can still get them!)

  40. I'd start off with a TRIPLE DIPPER™ appetizer: Big Mouth® Bites, Southwestern Eggrolls and Hot Spinach & Artichoke Dip.

  41. I know my eyes tend to be bigger than my stomach (thank heaven for doggy bags!) but I can't stop thinking about theose Custom Combinations and ordering a combo of the Grilled Salmon with Garlic & Herbs with the Spicy Garlic & Lime Grilled Shrimp would spare me the dilemma of taking forever to decide between the two! (Hubby and waitress/waiter would be very grateful for that!


  42. I didn't see my favorite on the menu…I think they are called spicy chicken tacos or something like that. So, in their place I'd get the Fajita trio!!


  43. I've been wanting to try their Shiner Bock BBQ Burger – yum! My favorite beer combined with a burger, how can you go wrong?? : )
