    30 min that is nothing to wait for geez..Chili's is my favorite restaurant so I really dont care how long the wait is...and if you are hungry and need to eat then sit at the lounge where there is no wait--first come first served plus you can go to the bar and get an appetizer at anytime!!! Personally I think Chili's needs to rethink the lounge from smoking to non simply bc in our chilis there is NO smoke serperation but thats how it is!!!

    Fast Food are you kidding??? went to a McDonalds drive thru the other morning and waited at least 10 minutes. When I got to the speaker I ordered two breakfast biscuits. The girl told me they had stop serving at 10:30am. I told her I drove up before 10:30 but they were so slow in serving drive thru customers that 10:30 had just now passed. Her response, we stop serving breakfast at 10:30. I realize I was not dealing with a rocket engineer, but if you look in the camera and see a pile of cars it stands to reason you should continue to serve breakfast until the cars are gone! Oh I had left a Hardees earlier because looking at my watch, the three cars in front of me had not moved in over 10 minutes. Fast Food right. It's not good for you and is no longer fast!!!I know I should have walked in, but then why do they have drive thru?????

    I do read carefully and you didn't state to whom you were implying about. Thanks.

    It wasnt directed at Alpha so it doesnt matter. It was to ANOTHER who is serious about talking about diabetes. Please read carefully. Thanks

    I honestly think Alpha was being sarcastic

    Kathy, if you dont like the wait, you should cook. There is usually a wait everywhere you go. Or pick a different time to go to dinner. Im sure the people that you say that to, dont care because its not going to get you a seat faster. I dont think this story has anything to do with diabetes...just ignorance.
