The good folks at Chili’s have offered to give 1 Picky Palate Reader a $50 Gift Card to dine at one of their restaurants!!  They also sent  my family so we could share our dining experience of Chili’s new menu items with all of you.  Here’s how our delicious night of eating went down……….

We started with a cup of their new Chicken Green Chili Soup.  Let me just say, my husband and I LOVED this,  so much I totally re-created it!!  See my recipe HERE.

I know, so naughty, but then we tried their new Loaded Beef Nachos.  Um….Incredible 🙂

The boys ordered off of the kids menu, but picked at our food too 🙂

For our main course, we shared the new Carribean Salad, Mini Chicken and Beef Tacos and the Steakhouse Sandwich.  We really enjoyed all of these plates, especially the Steakhouse Sandwich.  The horseradish dipping sauce was AWESOME!

It wouldn’t have been appropriate had we not ordered dessert, so we ordered their new Brownie Sunday, which was pretty much devoured 🙂  Thanks for a great dining experience Chili’s!!

Enter to Win the $50 Chili’s Gift Card:

1.  Leave a comment and tell us…..“Do you order the same type of thing when dining out or are you daring and try new things off of the menu?” I’m a “new menu item” kind of girl, but my hubby typically orders the same things!!  So, let’s hear it!

2.  For 3 additional entries follow me on Twitter HERE then post the following on your twitter page….  @pickypalate is giving away a $50 Chili’s Gift Card, come check it out…   (Leave 3 separate comments for this)

3.  For an additional entry become a fan of Picky Palate on Facebook HERE.  Leave a separate comment for this.

4.  For an additional entry join my site’s google friend connect under my “Foodie Friends”, right sidebar.  Leave a separate comment for this.

5.  Contest Ends Friday March 26th, 8am PST.  Gift Cards provided by Chili’s.


Good Luck!!

    I tend to order the same few things. I rotate. But my husband will order the SAME THING every time. 🙂

    It totally depends with me. At Chili’s, I almost always order whatever’s new but at places that aren’t as fun as Chili’s I stick with the boring stuff that I know I like.

    We <3 Chili's and would be so excited to win this!

    I usually order the same thing, unless something new looks tempting… like that steakhouse sandwich! Yum!

    My husband ALWAYS orders the same thing. A bacon cheeseburger. Always. I like to try new things. I recently tried the baked potato soup at Chili’s, it is SO good! I’ll definitely be making that at home, too!

    I’m definitely a ‘same thing’ girl, but I usually have 2-3 items I like and will go back and forth. If I eat at a restaurant regularly, I’ll branch out more often, but it’s rare!

    Janelle says:

    Whether I order the same thing or not depends on where I’m going. I have a “usual” at Red Robin and Olive Garden, but I don’t really go out much. I haven’t been to Chili’s in a few years, but I used to really LOVE it.

    It all depends on my mood, most of the time I order the same kind of thing, but sometimes if I see a picture of something that looks really good I’ll order that. I must be more of a visual person. : )
