Getting out of the house can be awkward. But at Chili's, you'll always feel right at home.

1. Speaking up about where you want to sit.

"No, we don't need that perfect window table. No, yes, we love the view of the kitchen."

2. Getting stuck sitting at the end of a booth.


"OMG, seven people will need to get up for me to use the restroom."

3. Not being able to pronounce your order and wanting to die.

"I want the enchi... encha... encheese... encheesesalada..." *faints*

4. That kid who stares at you from the other booth.

"Maybe if we ignore it, it will leave."

5. Making eye contact while you order.

"I'm not trying to be rude I swear!"

6. Friends who have long/confusing orders.


"That can't be possible."

7. Accidentally spilling your beverage and trying to mop it up with the napkins available.

"I've made a huge mistake."

8. And being literally afraid to ask for more napkins.

"I don't want to bug the server again. I'll just... wipe my hands on my pants... yeah." *ruins new khakis*

9. Then needing a refill.

"Please, sir. May I have some soda?"

10. Not knowing where the bathroom is.

"What if I get lost trying to find it. What if I go into the kitchen on accident!"

11. Asking for the check.

"Notice me!"

12. Splitting the check.

"We'll never get through this hell."

With Chili’s new Pay & Go tabletop device, dining out just got way less awkward.
