Chili’s American Grill & Bar is an American casual dining restaurant chain with a presence in over 32 countries around the world. What started in 1975 in Dallas, Texas with 11 Southwestern-inspired dishes and trademark beverages, now serves some of the best appetizers, soups and chili, salads, burgers, sandwiches, quesadillas, chicken and seafood entrees, fajitas, ribs, steaks and desserts in India. I recently visited Chili's in Phoenix Marketcity Pune and enjoyed the delicious fare along with the new limited offer menu which offers a range of lip smacking hand-crafted burgers..
As you enter the place, you are greeted by a vibrant ambiance with bright furnishings and cheerful interiors. The restaurant offers a variety of seating options and even has an outdoor seating area. I had never eaten Chili in my life as it's rarely available in India so the first thing I went for was the Terlingua Chili which came with tender chunks of meat slow cooked with onions and spices topped with mixed cheese. I would say its a lot like Indian keema but less spicy of course. I quite liked it.
The Nachos were highly recommended and I tried the chicken version. I like how they come with melted cheese, chicken, jalapeno and queso on each chip making it a wholesome bite and these are definitely the best nachos I've had in the city.
A meal at Chili's is incomplete without their signature Baby Back Ribs. slow cooked and smoked to perfection. I tried the original bbq ribs in the classic sauce and it's so good. Super tender and just melts in your mouth. Highly recommended! They're served with fries and corn on the cob.
The highlight of the meal is their Craft Burgers which are made with soft, freshly-toasted potato buns, along with the choice of patty seasoned, hand pressed & made to order. The burgers are layered with fresh, chef-selected ingredients like premium apple wood smoked bacon, tomatoes, lettuce, avocados along with their house-made guacamole. You can choose from options like Guacamole Chicken Burger, Big Mouth® Bites, Oldtimer® with Cheese, Classic Bacon Burger, New Southern Smokehouse Burger, New Sweet & Smoky Burger, all available in four choices of patties- Minced Tenderloin Buffalo Patty, Minced Lamb Patty,Minced Chicken Patty, and Southwestern Veg Patty. The Burgers are all accompanied with pickles, freshly made in-house with Chili’s signature recipe for that extra flavor.
I tried the Southern Smokehouse burger with a minced lamb patty and absolutely loved it! The patty bursting with flavor and was really juicy. I deconstructed it below to show you what's inside! If you love burgers, you cannot miss this one!!
Chili's is a great place serving some really good food so I recommend you to drop by whenever you're at Phoenix Marketcity Pune next. Fashionistas, keep in mind that it's bang opposite Forever 21 so it's a good idea to pop in there for a bite once you're done with shopping!! For the rest of the world, if there's a Chili's restaurant and bar in your city, I totally recommend you to check it out as I enjoyed my meal there and am sure you will too!
