It used to be better, still not bad

Chips used to be better, but the new owners have made a few changes to the menu and I don't think it has improved anything. The food is above average, but the selection and imagination is lacking. Service is great, particularly at lunch. Almost always very fast with plenty of refills. I... read more

Wonderful for families. Stick with their pizza, homemade chips (free) and get a dip to go with it all. Rotisserie chicken is also good. Check into their daily specials and happy hours!

The menu is a bit high priced for lunch, but the food and service is worth it. The service was quick.

unlimited homemade chips. The food was good but the service was a bit lacking and the place was nearly empty.

Went for a quick lunch. Got right in and out. Try the chips and ranch dressing. Wonderful. The smoked chicken salad was enormous.

The restaurant is located near the entrance to Metro North Business Park off of I-35. There are also hotels within walking distance and plenty of shopping within driving distance, so it’s a great location. I was there on 2 occasions for lunch and I found the service to be very friendly both times, but the food was mediocre, at best.... More

We were in Ankeny staying at the AmericInn for my brothers baby shower and needed a place for 10 of us to eat. Chips Restaurant is pretty much in the parking lot of a handful of hotels so we chose this place not just for location but it came highly recommended by the locals. They actually had a small private... More

The homemade chips are delicious, especially if it's busy so they are making them constantly and arrive piping hot! The wood-fired grilled pizzas are really good too. There's never been anything disappointing from the menu!
