Chili’s – Like no place else. Fun. Fresh. Flavorful.

Chili’s is a full-service restaurant chain that serves a wide variety of American and Tex-Mex cuisine, such as burgers, ribs and fajitas. The company is owned and operated by Brinker International, which also operates Italian restaurant brand Maggiano’s.

Founded in 1975 in Dallas, Texas, by Larry Lavine, the first Chili’s was a burger shack with only 25 menu items. It now has more than 1,500 locations, mostly in the U.S.

Burgers. Ribs. Fajitas. It all started with a dream: to create a place you’d want to go and dine-in with family or hang out with good friends over a burger. For people who craved connection with family and friends, Chili’s were the only ones to offer a genuine Southwest spirit filled with positive energy.
Since then, they’ve boldly claimed their place in the restaurant universe. Today, you can find Chili’s in 33 different countries. People around the globe love their Fresh Tex and Fresh Mex flavors, and the fun ways that we make every Guest feel special.
