Chili's also posted a statement saying some of its customers had their payment information compromised.

The restaurant chain released a statement on Saturday to let customers know about a "data incident" that may have resulted in "unauthorized access or acquisition of your payment card data".

"We sincerely apologize to those who may have been affected and assure you we are working diligently to resolve this incident", Brinker International said in a statement.

Information such as credit or debit card numbers and cardholder names may have been gathered by malware during in-restaurant purchases.

We immediately activated our response plan upon learning of this incident. It was lucky enough that Chili's doesn't ask for the social security number or date of birth when they sell you a burger to their customers.

Chili's did not go into detail about which of the corporate-owned restaurants were affected, nor how many people may have been impacted. The company said it is still investigating the incident together with law enforcement and third-party forensic experts.

"We are committed to sharing additional information on this ongoing investigation with our Guests as we learn more", Chili's said.

Brinker International Inc., the parent company of Dallas-based Chili's, said it learned of the breach Friday.

Chili's joins a long list of retailers who have had their data breached in the past year.
