I have no interest (long or short) in this stock other than I might own some in an ETF or mutual fund.
I went to a Chili's in Clark NJ last night (I had a gift card to use). I admit that it was very crowded and by the time I left the restaurant looked to be getting full.
It was the worst dining experience I've had in quite a while - nothing was good - the ribs were re-cooked and had no taste (other than the too sweet barbeque sauce). The fajitas my wife ordered were not very good - the beef was leathery, the chicken and shrimp OK.
The music they played was the most annoying noise I've ever heard. The booth we sat in was very uncomfortable. The service was OK.
To sum up - I would never go there again and can't imagine why people do (again it was very busy). I get better food and a less annoying experience even in fast food places (which I rarely frequent).
I guess they're doing well though it's hard to imagine why. Just my observation.
