Justin of Chili's



Yesterday afternoon we stopped at Chili's for a bite to eat after some shopping. Chili's is a Tex-Mex chain with restaurants in various parts of the United States. We've been eating at Chili's restaurants for many years in different parts of Florida.

Justin was our server. Justin was born and raised in Ocala - a native! He's been working at Chili's for almost a year (his one-year anniversary is coming up on May 5.) Justin says he likes meeting people and enjoys his work. He did an excellent job as our server.

The "Chili" balloons were hanging from the ceiling close to our table. I thought they were colorful enough to deserve a place on this post.

Chillin' with the natives. Very nice and very colorful.

"Chili" sounds great, Jacob. Chili in Germany means red hot peppers that I loved so much.

The balloons are lovely and Justin tee-shirt is quite funny.

Did you feel like"flying in those balloons" after tasting the margaritas!!!

Jacob said...

@ Marie-Noyale - Unfortunately, because I was driving, I gathered all the fortitude I could and declined to indulge in the margaritas. And I love margaritas!

What I love at Chili's is their nachos. We don't have one here in Norwich, but Cambridge does. So jealous.

Thanks for visiting Norwich Daily Photo and leaving your comment. Come back tomorrow!

PJ said...

Justin of Chili's? Is this like Francis of Assisi? Hildegard of Bingen? Jacob of Ocala? Haven't been to Chili's for a while, their booths got lumpy. It's always nice to have a good server.

Jacob said...

@ PJ - I think you were right re: the last one, 'cause it sure was Francis or Hildegard!

Lumpy booths?

Surprise! We have a Chili's here in Jeddah!!! We have lots of major chain restaurants, including Fuddruckers, Fridays, Papa Johns, and Tony Romas, to name a few. I love Chili's too!

I haven't been to Chili's in ages. I wonder if there's one in NYC.
