Restaurant Review Of Chili’s Pottstown

I finally made it to Chili’s tonight.   We went early as we tried last week at 5 pm and it was a mob scene.  We arrived about 4 pm and were immediately seated.  When we left people were waiting…probably 20 – 30 minutes based on the number of people waiting.

Our waiter was very knowledgable.  He informed us about the specials and promptly took our drink order.

My girlfriend ordered the Classic Chicken Fajitas and added the black beans and rice for .99.  I order a full rack of baby back ribs (Memphis dry rub) with fries and very hot coleslaw (they did warn it was hot).

Our food came fairly quickly, our server made sure we had everything we needed and then checked back in about 10 minutes.  He brought me extra napkins, a wet nap and a bone basket without having to be asked.  He was very good about keeping my tea glass full and brought me extra sauce for my ribs when I ran out.  He was back within about two minutes with the extra sauce. 

The ribs were perfectly cooked, not fatty and juicy.  Melted in your mouth.  The chicken fajitas were also excellent.  The chicken was tender, plentiful and juicy.  The tortillas weren’t gummy either which is always a plus.  We both enjoyed our meals.

We were too full for dessert.  Their desserts are mostly chocolate and probably expensive… we were too full and opted for dessert after shopping.

The restaurant is laid out nicely.  I like it better than the KOP layout.  Everything looked great and ran smoothly.  Good first impression.

Highly recommend!

Pottstown Chili’s To Open Monday 11/02/09


A reliable source confirmed that Chili’s new restaurant in Upland Square is scheduled to open on Monday, 11/02/09. 

There is a sign out front that says In Training.  They are doing their practice runs and people are being invited by invitation only to sample their wares!  One such person alerted me that Monday is the big day! 

So keep your eyes open Pottstown!

Chili’s is coming to Pottstown!!!!

On my semi-weekly pilgrimage to Target (Upland Square) tonight I noticed that Chili’s is taking shape F-A-S-T!  It was after 7 pm and they were working away on a Sunday, and a holiday weekend to boot, to get ready to open.  The sign out front says they are hiring!  OMG I can’t wait to lay a lip on some of their ribs!!!  We need more restaurants!!!!   Glad we are getting another good one.  At the rate they are going it won’t be long at all!  They made a ton of progress this week!

Upland Square is an awesome shopping center.  I look forward to seeing it filled with more new and exiting things!
