Chili’s requires no introduction. I have been at this all-American resto numerous times and I’ve always wanted to review their food, not that its needed LOL. I visited their outlet in the QCC branch for lunch.
Btw, I heard that every Chili’s has a picture hanging upside-down and it’s a challenge for the customers to find it! Sounds interesting, however, I didn’t know about this till I was back home after the lunch LOL. Let’s keep our eyes out for that next time, what say?
Starters ordered were Texas Cheese Poppers, Texas Cheese Fries and Crispy Onion Rings. My favourite were the Texas Cheese Poppers! Cheese balls coated with a little spice and deep fried to perfection. The Texas Cheese Fries were excellent too, mozzarella sticks with crispy crumb coating and delicious cheese fulling, served freshly hot. These starters are highly recommended! The onion rings, not so much. They had lost their shape and were too oily, though they tasted fine.
For mains, we ordered a Mushroom Swiss Burger, Chicken Fajita Quesadilla and a Flame Grilled Rib eye. We took lots of extra mash too.
The rib-eye was served medium well as I’d asked. It reflected excellent quality and was superbly flavoursome. Texturally, it was perfect and worth every penny. The sides were great too! Steak lovers in Oman know how expensive steaks are here and the ones at Chili’s are really good and affordable!
All burgers here are served with fries. The beef bacon burger was good. It had a fine beef patty topped with a good layer of bacon and swiss cheese. The quesadillas were served in a very good portion with a side of rice, black beans, sour cream and pico de gallo. It was tasteful and very filling too. Also the mash at Chili’s never fails to impress us.
Sadly, Chili’s in Oman does not serve alcoholic drinks but their mocktails are great too.
Overall, it was a very good lunch paired with excellent service. And of course, this is the go-to place when you want to enjoy a great meal with your friends.
