Good for casual get-together.
This review is primarily about the bar
Chili's is what you expect. Nothing fancy on the food or drinks. The menu is your general mish-mash of American cuisine with a slight Tex-mex flair to it.
For the area, its not a bad place to catch some quick grub, and a late night drink with a few friends. The bar service, even when its packed, is usually quite good, and the drinks are adequate.
It can sometimes get crowded with the CSUN crowd, but not often enough to keep me away. They have nice flat screens hung all around the bar, so its definitely an alternative to the sports bar for catching up on the weeknight games.
All in all, if you're in the mood for a meal and a drink, and don't want to drive down to the boulevard, this works.
Ordinary, as you would expect. Last time we went there were empty tables with people waiting 20-30 minutes on a weeknight at 6:30. Few things annoy me more than that kind of pretense.
Families and an after-work crowd come to this relaxed Tex-Mex chain for sizzling fajitas and a buzzing bar scene..
Festive decor of colorfully tiled tables, vintage photographs and sunny Southwestern accents welcomes an all-ages crowd at this informal hangout. Youngsters and their parents pile into dining room booths; casual business types toss back margaritas and watch televised sports at the bar. The menu features mild versions of Lone Star state favorites, from double-basted baby back ribs and steak fajitas to red-beef chili and deep-fried onions.
College Hangout. Chili's is a longtime favorite hangout for students at Cal State Northridge (the school is just around the corner). The food is pretty good--basic college staples like burgers and nachos (mmm ... yummy nachos!). The services is inconsistent, but usually good. It's not the place for a quiet dinner, though and while the prices are reasonable, they're not super cheap.
