There is not a single brand-wide policy regarding these discounts; offers vary by location.  Please contact the restaurant directly for information on its individual senior citizen, military and/or uniformed officer discounts.

Smoking Sections / Electronic Cigarettes
Each Chili’s restaurant adheres to local city ordinances regarding smoking, so policies will differ from location to location depending on the city zoning laws. Vapor and electronic cigarettes are only permitted in the smoking areas of restaurants where city ordinance permits smoking in public places.
