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!!

    I like to try new things. My husband sticks to the same things so if I don’t like the new thing I ordered I can always share some of his.

  2. Melanie

    I order the same thing usually, if its somewhere I go a lot. Oddly enough, the less I go to a place the more likely I am to try something new.

  3. Jackie

    I used to be a “never-ever stray from my one item” type of girl, but recently I’ve been trying a lot of new things!

  4. I like to try new things on menus, especially if they have a good description on the menu. My husband likes to get the same things over and over again, which drives me nuts!

  5. I eat pretty much the same things when we go out. We have three kids and it’s such a rarity to go out that I don’t want to mess it up by delving into the unknown!

  6. It depends on the place. At my favs I get what I alwyas get because that is usually why we go there. Often me and hubs order 2 meals and then will share them so we can try more food. I usually like what he orders best and he gives me his plate.

  7. I tend to order my favorite thing in the restaurants I frequent. But if we go some place new I try to order something out of my ordinary.

  8. We love Chili’s…it’s been a while since we’ve been, I had no idea they had new menu items. I usually stick with the same thing unless there are new items that look good.

  9. I always try and ‘spice’ things up and order new things off the menu. Sometimes it tastes great and sometimes I wish I had gone with an old favorite.

  10. kirsten

    I love Chilis new menu, especially the taco trio. Ummm … mouth is watering just thinking about it! If you can’t tell by what I just wrote … I like to try new things

  11. Jennifer Thomas

    I usually order the same thing. It’s what brings me back to places. But if there is something new and it sounds great, I’ll go for it.

  12. Estera

    What a great giveaway- THANK YOU !
    I order different things all the time. My husband usually copies me…lol

  13. Kristin

    I try to be adventurous, but have a tendency to stick with what I know and love. The hubby LOVES Chili’s salsa and queso!

  14. Annette

    It depends. I do love to try new menu items, but at the same time I have tried and true favorites. I think it just depends on my mood that day, lol.

  15. brenda

    I stick with the tortilla soup, we share the mushroom jack fajitas…unless my hubby throws me off and wants to get his own thing! Then what do I do??

  16. Stephanie Foster

    For years I have ordered the same thing at Chili’s most of the time: the bacon cheeseburger. Kind of boring, I know. But always delicious!

  17. Melissa Staker

    I have about three items on the menu that I choose from every time. My husband always gets the same thing.

  18. Steph

    I usually get the same thing when I eat out. But I absolutely LOVE the white chocolate molten cake at Chili’s. That’s why we go there. πŸ™‚

  19. Courtney

    I tend to stick to the same thing at chain restaurants but at
    non-chains I will go with a special.

  20. Julia B

    I’m a “same-thing-off-the-menu” kinda gal. Boring, but at least I know what I’m getting, and I’m never disappointed! πŸ™‚

  21. I like to try new things and my husband usually orders the same thing. But if I don’t like the new thing I ordered, he’ll switch me and let me eat his meal. Of course I get the I told you you should order something you know you like lecture. LOL

  22. la-la-lisa

    It depends on my mood. I like to think I’m adventurous, but sometimes you go to place wanting just nachos. πŸ™‚

  23. Sarah Smith

    I like to try new things, but sometimes I will go back to my old favorites. Chilis is my favorite restaurant! I love their chips and salsa, and their enchilada soup! I can’t wait to try the green chile lime soup!!

  24. Stacie Aho

    I usually order the same thing since we don’t eat out often. I want to get what I know will be delicious!

  25. I love to order new things and things that I don’t know how (or don’t have time) to make. Mmm…Chilis…too bad my husband doesn’t like to eat out! But he does like to eat my cooking especially recipes from my favorite blogHer sites! πŸ˜€

  26. Niki

    It depends on which restaurant I am at. At some places, once I find something I really, really like….I tend to crave it and then go there specifically for it. Other places, I like to try a variety of things. Usually, if I go with my husband or my mom, we order 2 (or 3) things plus 2 plates, then we divide everything up. For instance at Chili’s we’d get that Tex-Mex Salad (don’t recall what its called)and Fajitas, so we both get a little of each. I also love the kids menu at Chili’s because they have actual chicken and not just chicken fingers and grilled cheese. My kids want to eat grown up food just in smaller portions. Would love to win this and take everyone out to eat, it’s been ages since we’ve been able to go.

  27. Adrienne Larkin

    I am like you…I try all the new menu items and drinks where my husband and kids get the same thing every time…..becoming a FB fan!!

  28. Kristy

    I usually order the same thing, but if there’s something new that looks really good, I’ll try it.

  29. Rebecca Bell

    i usually try something different, but my hubby is the same as you- always the same thing. i love chili’s!

  30. Laura M.

    Usually I order similar things when we eat out…but sometimes I do like to mix it up. Depends on my mood I guess!

  31. Elaine

    Love their enchilada soup, tend to order that or one of the salads. Looking forward to trying the lime chicken soup after seeing your picture. Great photos!

  32. Nicole Waechtler

    My husband and I are just like you and yours. I LOVE to try the specials and venture into the unknown. He, however, will stick to 1 of 3 “options” haha!

  33. Charity

    At a new place I order something I know generally, but at a place I’ve been to before, I like to be more “daring”.

  34. Deirdre

    I always try something new — too many options to just stick with the same old, same old. My parents taught us to enjoy food and experiment with flavors.

  35. Michelle

    For the most part I order the same thing off the menu if I really love it. Sometimes I will go wild and order something new. =)

  36. I love ordering new things!! Although, there are certain restaurants where I cant resist getting something I’ve had already that’s incredibly tasty and heart stopping (in terms of how much butter they must use!)


  37. Christina Dossola

    I tend to try the new stuff unless i have a strong craving for something I already know is good. That’s so funny cause my hubby does the same thing…always orders what he already has had πŸ™‚

  38. Angela

    I like to try new foods and order different items when I go out but my husband always goes for his usual favorites. Thanks for the chance to win!

  39. Kanien

    I always order the same thing. I am trying to break myself of this habit, but I could even tell you what I would order if I went to eat at Chili’s tonight and I wouldn’t need to see a menu.

  40. tia

    i tend to order the same thing most of the time. Although I have to read through the menu every time and on the occasion i will order a new dish that sounds delish…

  41. Sarah Ehmke

    I always get the same thing. When I don’t, I regret it. New things never turn out as good as my favorites.

  42. I am kind of boring, I order the same things almost all the time. I have a few items I rotate through. I am too picky I guess. I should work on it, because the few random times I have tried something different, I loved them!

  43. I order the same thing! πŸ™‚ One of my favorite restaurants took my favorite dish off of their menu and I don’t think I’ll ever go back! πŸ™‚

    I REALLY want Chili’s now!!

  44. Shannon Scorse

    I am totally a same thing every time kind of girl! I am trying to be more adventurous though and these new menu items look pretty great.

  45. Julie

    It depends. I usually get the same type of thing, but if something new looks REALLY good I’ll try it.

  46. Dawn M

    usually the same. I try to get my husband to order something I want to try and then try a bit of his πŸ˜‰

  47. Christy Rogowski

    Hmm – well it depends on the place I think! There are a few places where I just NEED to have my favorite!!!

  48. Laura

    I tend to order the standard at my favorite restaurants. But if something sounds unbelievably yummy then I go for it!

  49. Megan Stohl

    I like to try new things each time. My husbands always orders the same thing. I can order for him at any restaurant.

  50. Heidi

    I am hit or miss…every once in a while I will try something new but I usually stick to my favorites!!

  51. Jenny

    I almost ALWAYS order the same thing! I really want to try other stuff, but I’m scared I’ll be disappointed. I usually try to convince my husband to order something I’ll like so I can test it out! He’s sweet like that!

  52. Karen

    I love to try new things. However, there is one restaurant that, when my friend and I go out, it’s the same 1 or 2 items that we are stuck on. We plan to try something different, but just can’t change! We have our favorites.

  53. Melinda

    I usually have a few different things I will try. My dh always does the ‘special’ if they have one…

  54. I am totally adventurous at restaurants. My hubs totally stays with his faves. That seems to be a reoccurring theme in the comments. Ha!

  55. I generally love to try new things with the exception of
    chicken fried steak. If I find a good one I am there every single time. What can I say, I love my chicken fried steak!!

  56. Beth

    I usually like to order things I wouldn’t make at home. I hate paying for a meal I could make better myself. I also read the entire menu. Online menus are great so I can look at the menu before we leave and have an idea of what I might like to try so I don’t take forever once we get to the restaurant.

  57. My husband loves Chili’s and he always gets the chicken crispers! I like to try new things, especially when there is a new menu item, so I can find a new favorite! Would love the gift card for our weekly date night πŸ™‚

  58. Lisa G

    I like to try new things unless it’s a totally craving for something in particular. It’s always fun to try it and if I like it try to make my own at home. Husband is a little boring he eats the same things all the time!

  59. Chloe

    I’m so boring. I usually order the same kind of thing at each restaurant since I’m so picky when it comes to meat and veggies. I eat like a 12 year old.

  60. anna p.

    Depends where we are, at Chilis I usually order different things. I’d love to try some of their new items, fingers crossed!

  61. I have my favorites at different restaurants…so I tend to order the same thing. Only once in a while am I daring and try something new. Funny, I’m trying new things at home all the time!

  62. Shanna

    Mmm- looks delicious! I always eat the same thing. Always. I wish I were better about trying new things, but I go to the places I go because I know I will like what I get I guess. My husband used to be the same way, but he’s becoming much more adventurous these days!

  63. Julie

    We always order the queso and burgers but I am so glad that the Caribbean Salad is back. I just gave a friend a gift certificate to Chili’s as a baby shower gift so she could have her favorite before the baby came.

  64. Tonya

    I tend to have a couple go to items while my husband is more adventurous, he will try anything. We love Chilis!

  65. Jessica

    At some restaurants I order the same thing but I love to try new things. My favorite is when I go with girlfriends and we can share a bunch of stuff!

  66. Amy

    My husband and I are working on becoming debt free, so we don’t go out to eat as much as we like to. I get the same thing every time because who knows when I’ll get to go back.

  67. Abby

    I usually order the same type of thing. I may mix it up slightly but because we do not get to eat out too often I want to make sure I am going to like the dish!

  68. How awesome! I totally order the same thing for the most part. I wish I was brave enough to branch out and try new things though..

  69. Molly

    A good blend of both. The new Shiner Bock ribs at Chili’s are AMAZING, though. πŸ™‚ Would love to use a card for those (and then we can pay a babysitter!)

  70. Linda Smith

    I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Chili’s. We have had a tradition of going to Chili’s during the NCAA March Madness and watching games on their TV in the bar. I love their salads and most often chose the Quesadilla Explosion. YUM!!! I hope I win!!! πŸ™‚

  71. I usually order the same thing, boring I know. But I was in LOVE with their grilled chicken Caribbean salad and was PREGNANT when they discontinued it a while ago…now I see they have a new one? hmmm, might have get myself to chili’s soon!

  72. Stephanie

    I love the chicken ceaser salad whereever we go! However I have been known to try a fish dish or two! He, he!

  73. staci

    Depends on my mood. I go through periods where I try to eat healthy, so I’ll order grilled chicken, no matter what. Thank goodness those moods don’t last forever.

  74. Kara

    I used to be a chicken tenders girl everywhere (yes I even ordered that at red lobster!) now I force my self to get something else (healthier) and then I stick to the same thing at that restaurant!

  75. kristin

    I usually get the same thing! However, if I ever decided to do something different, it’s probably not something TOO different from my main entree!

  76. Heather Talley

    I order the same thing every time we go out…I always want to try new things but chicken out and get what I know I love!

  77. Stephanie P.

    I tend to order the same thing if I’ve had it before and it’s really good, I’ll order it again.

  78. Phuong

    I typically order the same thing but will order something different if I see something new that I like.

  79. Kim Jensen

    I like to try new things. But I am a pretty picky eater so a lot of places only have a few things on the menu I will eat.

  80. Olivia VanCott

    I usually stick with what I like and my husband will try something new. Then I get to try some of his food πŸ™‚

  81. megan

    I am a ‘blue-plate special’ kind of girl. At places we go often, I usually get the same thing. At places we go infrequently, I normally try different things depending on my mood.

  82. lisa

    I’m so bad. I typically order the same thing. At Chili’s it’s the Chicken Crispers meal. They are SO good.

  83. Jessica Gray

    It depends on the place, whether or not I order the same thing or not. Some places I go, I go there because I want a specific thing of theirs but others it’s whatever sounds good at the time!

  84. Pam Shank

    I am FB fan also. I order the same things usually. My husband is more willing to try the same things.

  85. I haven’t tried Chille’s yet but I would love too. I do tend to order one of a few items while my partner always try’s something new. I have terrible allergies and am always limited in what I can eat which is no fun.

  86. sandy

    Depends on the restaurant. Some places I’ll try new things, but others I just stick with my ‘old favorite’.

  87. Yummy! Their new menu items look great! It really depends on my mood with my eating habits…sometimes I am very adventurous and other times I just crave my favorite same old menu item πŸ™‚ Thank you!

  88. Kelly S.

    I typically order the same things. I always want to try new things, but am just drawn back to what I know I love!

  89. Lenae Trent

    I am a facebook fan! Not sure if my other post went threw. I didn’t see it. Sorry if this is a duplicate.

  90. Lenae Trent

    I am kind of both sometimes I order the same thing sometimes I venture to try something new. Depends on the restaurant

  91. Danielle

    Both my husband and I find something we like and stick with it. We branch out once in a while to spice it up but not too often.

  92. Danielle

    I like to try new things! We eat so much of the same things at home that I want new stuff when we go out.

  93. Christy

    I go in with the attitude of trying new things, but then I usually order the same thing that I always get because I love it so much! My husband, on the other hand, it’s a new thing every time. πŸ™‚ So at least I get to try something else, right?

  94. Molly Harris

    It depends on the restaurant. Some places I order my favorites everytime and others I try new things.

  95. All the food looks de-lish!
    I order different things, but do love when salmon is on the menu, each place it seems to be different. My husband on the other hand, almost always orders chicken fried steak (ew) if it’s on a menu!

  96. Angela

    I love your blog! I have made a few of the recipes you have posted and the hubby loved them:) Thanks! I tend to order the same things when we go out however I am going to try to breakout and try new things.

  97. i LOVE ordering new things!!! and Chili’s is one of my favorite restaurant! everything i have tried is delicious! i always order their queso though- amazing!

  98. Chili’s is my favorite restaurant. I love to try their new items, but always play it safe by ordering a cup of Chicken Enchalida soup. It’s my staple. πŸ™‚

  99. Susan Gruwell

    My husband loves to explore different things each time he orders. I generally try some of his and order something different each time, but keeping with in the same ingredients. I’m not as wild as my husband!

  100. Lindsey Gruwell

    I always have the same things that I like, so I switch off ordering one each time. I wish I would expand, but I love certain food and enjoy getting it each time.

  101. I order the same thing every time I go to any restaurant. But that doesn’t make my diet very repetitive, since it’s not like I’m eating out (or eating at the same restaurant) every day or anything. But I LOVE knowing what to expect. And Chili’s is awesome.

  102. i’m as boring as they come. case in point: i’ve been to chili’s three times this month and i’ve gotten the same thing each time–pulled pork mini tacos. so good! and don’t even get me started on their cinnamon roll shooter. ’tis divine.

  103. Barb in CA

    Oh, would I love to win this Chili’s Gift Card! My husband and I approach food totally different. He’s adventurous and loves trying new things. I’m timid about the “unknown” so once I find what I like I tend to order it every time I go back.

  104. Elaine

    I hate to be predictable, but I tend to order the same things. I know what I like. Maybe if I win gift card I will be brave and try something new!

  105. Lisa

    I stick to ordering the same thing. When cooking though, I love to try different stuff…I know exactly what’s in it πŸ™‚

  106. Megan Dinsdale

    I try to be daring, but sometimes it’s scary to branch out. If it is at a restaurant where I have never had a bad experience, it makes it a lot easier to try something new.

  107. I try really hard to order new things each time, sometimes I do, but I do revert back to same old things if new things don’t jump out at me. but my husband orders something new everytime!! And I always try his food!

  108. Jenn

    My husband is really daring but I tend to like the same things. Once in a blue moon I will get the courage to order something else.

  109. Corinna

    I like to try new things, the only caveat to doing this is, when you find something you LOVE and it is only for “a limited time” LOL

  110. AlisonV

    I generally tend to stick to the same few items at each place, but I am willing to try new things if I think it’s something I’d like!

  111. I’m always too intimidated by menus that have too many things on them! I usually find something I like and stick with it! Fajita Explosion salad is my favorite at Chilis – along with their Molten Cake! Yummmm!

  112. Amy L

    It depends on my mood – sometimes I’ll try something new, but if we’ve been to the restaurant before, and I had something good, I might order it again.

  113. Desirae

    Well…it depends where I’m at, and how often I’ve been there. I’ve been going to Chili’s since I was a kid. I’ve tried many items and I love their chicken enchilada soup. I often get the soup & salad deal (which isn’t on the menu anymore). But that new soup looks delicious. I’m going to try this soon!

  114. Wendy

    I love to try new things but my favorite at Chili’s is the appetizers!!! They are so awesome that I choose to sample several instead of ordering an entree!

  115. I usually enjoy trying new things on menus. I get bored eating the SAME thing EVERY TIME! πŸ™‚ Thanks for hosting this giveaway!

    ~ Carrie ~

  116. Kim in MD

    I almost always order the same thing. Boring, I know!

    That said, in January we were homeless for two weeks (sold our previous home and waiting for our new home to be completed), and we ate at this fabulous restaurant in St. Michaels every night for two weeks! I tried everything on the menu (everything was amazing)! That was fun!!! πŸ™‚

  117. kathy steadman

    I stick to my favoorites-but then try my husbands ever changing item picks to make sure I don’t have a new favorite to stick with. πŸ™‚

  118. April

    I always stick to the same things! I know I like them. Also, I don’t want to be disappointed if I try something new and it’s not as good.

  119. Tania Bell

    I try different things for the most part. I don’t order steaks, but dh always does and I stay away from pasta dishes that are so easy to make at home.

  120. Katie R

    I almost always order some variation of the same thing…a salad or sandwich with grilled chicken. I’m not very adventurous.

  121. DeeAnn Jeppesen

    WOW! Your blog is like going to the grocery store hungry…don’t do it! πŸ™‚ I need to go to Chili’s right now. I haven’t been for awhile. After reading & looking at your photos I need to try it now! I like to order different things off the menu but will always have my favorites!

  122. Jessica

    I always start out with the skillet queso and finish with their chocolate lava cake. I do try out new things for my main entree. I love the new menu items and the improvements to the old ones!

  123. Jennifer Lehnhof

    I love to try new things except a few restaurants where I just have to have my good old favorites. My husband eats out a lot with work so he is ALWAYS trying new things and has become quite adventurous.

  124. Karri

    I want to order something different, but after looking at the menu for ten minutes I usually decide on one of the three things I usually order.

  125. I usually go for the same kind of thing – but will occasionally try new things. I’m just such a picky eater, that I normally just stick to the thing I know I’ll love.

    On a side note – Chili’s changed their house salad as well. It went from fantastic to sub par (in my mind) The lettuce you now get is shredded, almost like coleslaw but not the dressing. It has roasted corn (which is tasty) and cucumbers (hurray!) but missing some of my previous favorite elements. They are always willing to substitute this new salad with regular lettuce for me when I ask though.

  126. Janell

    I pretty much stick to my favorites…especially at place I don’t get to go to very often. But desserts? Not that’s a place where I know I won’t be disappointed so it’s fun to switch that up a bit!!

  127. Sandy

    What I like to do is get something that takes a long time to make – so I get the enjoyment of someone else doing the fussy or messy stuff.

  128. It depends on the restaurant. Some places I know what I want and want it each time, other places I get something new every time. I’ve previously joined your google reader, so do I get a separate entry for that anyway?

  129. Tiffany

    We don’t eat out often, so when we do, I usually wind up ordering the same things. I’m always scared to “waste” a trip out to eat if the new item turns out to be terrible.

  130. anthy

    I like to try new things! Usually. There are a few restaurants (like the local Mexican eatery) where I’ve found that trying new things isn’t rewarding. And at a couple of restaurants, I like one items so much that I have it most of the time. Like steak at Applebees! But otherwise, I like to try new things.

    Thank you for the giveaway!

  131. Tammie Clark

    I’m a REALLY picky eater, so when I find something I like somewhere I always order that same thing.

  132. Oooh, I love Chilis! I love trying new menu items, but my hubby’s the same as yours. Once he finds something he likes, he sticks with it. πŸ™‚

  133. Freda Chadwick

    I almost always eat the same thing. But with your review of the new items – I think I need to try some of them!

  134. Oh jeez! I need to win this! Personally I’m a “new” menu kinda girl, but because my boyfriend loves Chili’s so much we go often, I have some favorites on their lower calorie menu I always order.

  135. Megan

    Sometimes, I’ll try new things, or I’ll try something different until I find something I love. Once I find something I love, I usually stick with it.

  136. It totally depends. At chain type restaurants, I generally get the same thing if I know I like it. At other restuarants, I try to get what ever the chef is featuring and have had some wonderful dishes I might not otherwise tried.

  137. My husband and I are pretty adventurous when we eat out – we always try out different things. But we do have our favourites from certain restaurants. Right now we when we go out we try the low calorie things on the menu to see if restaurants can make tasty things for those of us who are trying to be more health conscience.

  138. Marie

    I’m definitely a tried and true orderer. I wouldn’t want to ruin the experience with getting bad food:)

  139. Michele K

    We usually order the same things. Dont even look at the menu. Then we would have to make a decision between what we know we love….and….ooooh that looks good!

  140. Davese Galla-Rini

    Little of both. Some resturants I order the exact same thing but then somtimes I venture out !!

  141. Leah

    I love Chili’s. I am both. I ALWAYS get the Chicken Enchilada Soup. But I do try new things with my soup. Yum. I want some now.

    I’m pretty adventurous. I like to try new places and new things. But sometimes you just gotta stick with what works.

  143. Once I find something that I like, I tend to keep ordering it, although if the restraunt is close, I am more adventurous. When I am visiting family, I have to have my favorites, or I am likely disappointed when I leave.

    Love Chili’s! At Chili’s we tend to order our favorites… depends
    on the restaurant whether we try new things!

  145. I ALWAYS try something new. Most of the time it works out, but there have been a few times I ended up wishing I had gone with something I had already “proven”.

  146. Kristin

    We love Chilli’s. I usually end up ordering the same thing although I wish I was the type that ordered something new every time. Maybe if I win I will try too.

  147. I was so happy they brought the Caribbean Salad back. And they added dried cherries? Awesome. I don’t always order the same thing, unless I’m going to that place specifically for that item. At Chili’s I would go back and forth between that salad and their ribeye or chicken fried steak.

    When the hubby and I eat out I usually try something new. He always orders the same thing – a burger well done.

  149. Brandi

    I tend to oreder the same thing. Once in a while I’ll branch out, especially when it’s been recommended by others!

  150. I always want to order something new. But then I get scared that I’ll waste my money on eating something that just isn’t as good as what I normally order. So I end up ordering the same thing and always leave happy πŸ™‚

  151. Andrea H

    I want to win! I tend to stick to items on a menu that I already know I like rather than risk getting something new and not liking it, but if it was paid for by someone else I’ll try anything!

  152. I am a stay with what I know and like type of girl. It makes me really sad to order something and then not like it have to watch everyone else happily enjoying their food. Food envy…not good. πŸ™‚

  153. I ALWAYS get the same thing at Chilis. I vary between the blackberry tea and Dr Pepper though- does that count as daring?? Chilis is our favorite and I would love a gift card. I never win anything! πŸ™‚

    Home Is Where The Army Sends Us

  154. It depends on what I’m in the mood for! Sometimes I order chicken anywhere I go, and sometimes I like to try new things. We go to Chili’s all the time, so when they have new things, I usually like to try them.

  155. Erica Williams

    I have traditonally been an always order the same thing kind of girl. But, due to my husband’s requests, I have recently been trying new things. I am happy to say that I am now a “try new things” kind of girl! I was missing out before πŸ™‚

  156. Jessica

    I always order a bacon cheeseburger….although sometimes I switch back and forth between cheddar and blue cheese!

    I have tried two of the new soups. I loved the green chile chicken soup but the other one, a creamed corn, not so much.
    My husband loved the baked potato and the black bean but they removed them from their menu. I have always wanted an
    Immersion Blender! Thanks

    sometimes i try new things but then again I go to a place and I know exactly what I want and it may have been what I had the last time I was there. it’s just what I’m in the mood for. Chili’s is one of our favorite places!! thanks for the chance!
