Ate here with my family of four when we were staying next door as we were relocating out of the area. Although we lived in Ankeny for 4+yrs we had only been here one other time. The chips were not hot on this visit which was a big negative for me. My husband and I split a half a chicken... More

We ate here recently on our way to a family reunion. We were staying at the Country Inn and Suites which is right next door. The food is very good, the service was wonderful and the chips are 'to die for!'. Glad we chose to eat here!!!

Was staying at the Holiday Inn Express across the street, so I went here more out of convenience than recommendation, and turned out to be a great choice. Lots of homemade specialties. Homemade chips are addicting! I got the special chicken and noodles, would have that again and the other at my table had the roasted chicken, and it looked... More

We stayed next door so this was very convenient for us. We went with a party of seven. It wasn't very busy and were seated pretty quickly. They brought us the chips which were OK, it's greasy fried food- everybody likes that right? The staff was friendly and pretty attentive but did get one of the orders wrong. Two of... More

Fantastic homemade potato chips. Large quantities of food. Great wood oven pizza! I love their chicken parmesan.

Has been a long time since I have been here. Big sign out front that says under new management which didn't make me feel great. Started poor when hostess didn't even acknowledge I was standing there. We were seated in bar per request and had a couple of drinks and an appetizer. Drink was weak and served in a tall... More

They are known for their chips.. homemade; but still pretty "oily". Family gathering of ten.... sat in separate room.. nice service.... good food.... nothing special to make me want to go back. Nice to have in the Ankeny area... (we used to live their several decades back).. we may stop back for a burger sometime.. but that's about it.

Chips have really tasty "chips" that are really addicting. My favorite is the Reuben Pizza!! If you like Reuben sandwiches, do try the pizza. I'm not sure why we don't get to Chips a lot, but every time we choose Chips, I come away with a full stomach and a smile! Give them a try!

Let me start by saying we LOVE the food here! The wood fired pizza, homemade chips, and white bean chicken chili are amazing! That being said, there are several things happening there that make me not want to go back. First, the new owners have raised all the prices to the point that it is no longer "family friendly" but...
