My Chi-Chi's was demolished and replaced by a Smokey Bones. SB is so much better! I am pretty sure that they kept the original post and/or sign, and just repainted it.

The old Chi Chi's by Franklin Mills here in philly was on fire Jan 24th.
I don't think the cause of it has been reported yet.
heres a picture of it on fire from 6abc WPVI's website

And here's a pic I took today of what remains.

Chi Chi's is gone and the name Chi Chi's Means Boobs in Spanish:insane: i have no idea why someone would name it Boobs any way the closed in they filed for ch11 in 2003 and closed fro good in sep 2004 and im not suprised eather cause of all the Law sutes they got agest them beacuse of the hepatitis outbreak lol that would really bring a Chain out of bizz im just luckey i never ate there

I can explain.  My brother worked at one when they first opened.  One of their original owners was
Max McGee, former Green Bay Packers wide receiver, and MVP of Super Bowl I.  Mrs. McGee apparently
had some very large breasts, and McGee apparently decided based on that to go with the name Chi-Chi's.

Max McGee sadly passed away a few years ago when he fell while trying to clear snow off the roof of his home.

This was the former Chi-Chi's in Southgate, Michigan. It lasted from the 1980's until 2003, when it was shuttered during a series of closures leading up to the chain's physical retail demise the following year. Later Malarkey's, it became Rosie O'Grady's in early 2014. Photo courtesy of the Downriver Things Flickr page.

When I lived at home I shared a room with my brother.  He worked at Chi Chi's at the time.

After about a year of working in the Chi Chi's kitchen my brother began to actually
SMELL like a burrito.  That scent got into his clothes, into his hair, into his bloodstream...
even after changing and showering he smelled like a burrito!  He'd lift weights and start
to sweat....burrito!  It was really, really strange.

They apparently used some very powerful spices and seasonings that lingered on.
He had been working someplace else as a bartender for about six months before
the smell completely went away.
