Chili's Restaurant Lighter Fare Review And Giveaway


Yesterday after my workout, I decided to stop at Chili's restaurant to pick up lunch.  I'm on phase one of the South Beach diet so I had to choose something that was low carb, no fruit, pasta, rice, potatoes and etc.  I didn't know that they had a take out area in the restaurant so you can order To Go.  I chose from their lighter menu which had six items to choose from.  I decided to go with the Lighter Choice 6 oz. Classic Sirloin because most of the other dishes came with rice.  


As you can see, it is pretty light, only 250 calories.  The broccoli was good but the steak was kind of bland for my taste.  I had to season it up a bit with red and black pepper and salt.  It tasted better after giving it a little oomph with the seasonings.  The cost of 10.99 wasn't frugal but I used a gift card I got for my birthday.

I would like you to try a Chili's Lighter Fare meal so I'm giving away a $25 Chili's gift card and you can have lunch on me.  Enter to win and good luck to all (GLTA).

  4. I've tried the steak on their Lighter Fare menu and I agree it was a little bland. Nothing that salt and pepper wouldn't help though :) Since I can't eat gluten I eat steak at restaurants a lot, most of the chicken dishes have sauces with wheat etc. Great giveaway!

  5. I tried the lighter fares and liked them very much (minus an overcooked broccoli) and I am glad because Chili's is one of my favorite restaurant chains.
