It's been almost a year since Chili's announced they would open a new location in Berkshire Crossings shopping center, and there's finally an opening date, sort of.

Kristen Moore, a representative from Brixmor Property Group, who owns the shopping center, spoke with The Berkshire Eagle about plans for the new restaurant to open their doors. According to Moore, the brand new building is scheduled to open mid to late December.

The Chili's Grill and Bar restaurant chain purchased and demolished the former Old Country Buffet, located in between Applebee's and Taco Bell, earlier this year and constructed a brand new but smaller 4,500 square foot building in it's place. First started in Dallas, Texas in 1975, Chili's now has over 1,600 locations around the world.
