Coronavirus (COVID-19): Chili’s Commitment Efforts Today and Always


As the COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic evolves, we are taking extra precautions to care for our Chili's family – our Team Members and you. We are actively monitoring COVID-19 by staying close to the official guidance provided by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), the World Health Organization (WHO) and all government guidelines and mandates. This page will serve to answer questions our Guests may have about Chili's during this time and will be updated as more information is available.

What We're Doing For Our Guests

What measures have you taken to ensure the safety of your Guests?

The safety of our Guests and Team Members is our highest priority at this time. Following guidance from the CDC and WHO, we immediately implemented enhanced cleaning and disinfecting procedures for high-trafficked areas, surfaces and equipment, such as tables, table top devices, menus and more. We will continue these efforts and enhance our quality control methods as necessary.

How will I know if my local Chili's is closed for dine-in?

We're following all local regulations regarding restaurant closures, and the majority of our restaurants are open only for Curbside, Pickup and Delivery as of March 24, 2020. Please visit our Locations page to check the status of your local Chili's.

Can I get contactless Curbside service at my local Chili's?

Absolutely! When placing an order with us on or through the Chili's app, select Curbside as your checkout option, then park in a designated spot once you reach the restaurant. You can open your trunk when your order comes out and our Team Members will place your Chili's food directly in your trunk.

What We're Doing for Our Team Members

How will you be helping your Chili's Team Members during this time?

Our Team Members who serve you each and every day are like family. We’re doing our part to support our ChiliHeads (as we affectionately call each other) by:

  • Offering relief pay to hourly Team Members to offset this new reality over the next two weeks
  • Providing emergency sick pay for hourly Team Members diagnosed with COVID-19 or required to quarantine because of family members diagnosed

You can also watch a video featuring our president, Wyman Roberts, with more information.

Of course! You can use your rewards with every Curbside, Pickup or Delivery order, including your Free Chips & Salsa or Non-alcoholic Beverage reward. My Chili's Rewards members can login before placing their order to see what rewards are available. If you haven't joined My Chili's Rewards, you definitely should to make sure you don't miss out on FREE food and more.
