Are you using KLOUT? Every now and then I get a perk just for being a social media user. Last week, I received a gift card for Chili’s to celebrate their $20 for 2 dinner meals.
My mom slept over and we decided to all go last night – Saturday. You know, the busiest night of the week. Unfortunately, Chili’s was packed and we had to wait about 35 minutes at the bar.
I kept joking that the kids were at the bar and saying that Reese Witherspoon line – “You brought a baby… to the bar!?” What movie was that from?? I can’t remember.
We were seated and ordered. My mother and husband did the $20 for 2 deal and opted for guacamole and chips as their one appetizer. In this deal, you get one appetizer and two main courses. Here is the menu that you can choose from.
The amount of chips that came actually filled a party of 5! Insane.
Another mind-blowing lesson learned last night was Chili’s offers 2-for-1 drinks (including draft beers and mixed – NOT BOTTLES). This isn’t a happy hour special. This doesn’t require you to hang out at the bar. This is ALL THE TIME no matter where you sit. My husband was in his GLORY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The steak lovers really enjoyed their meal. And as usual – my husband was a ham. He is watching his diet and was able to swap out the loaded potatoes for a corn on the cob which he was very happy about.
Another thing I loved was the kids menu. Notice how many side dish options they provide!! Liam chose pineapples and Natalie chose cinnamon apples. The entire menu gives you a caloric count as well!!! SO FAB!
We ended the meal with a brownie sundae and it was dangerous. The freaking brownie was piping hot and the ice cream was creamy and delicious. No matter how much I didn’t want to eat it… I just had to!!!! The entire table was in heaven.
So – we are a converted family. Bill and I typically don’t opt for chain restaurants – but we had no complaints yesterday. Pretty surprised at the quality of food and service. And I love how kid-friendly Chili’s is. So, yes we will be returning. I would have never given this place a chance had it not been for this Klout perk – so that was pretty awesome to receive.
Do you parton Chilis?
