This is my favorite local restaurant. It has been here in Chino for over 50 years. The service is about as friendly as can be with many of the servers working there many years. The owner comes around often to check on you and your meal. Their Prime Rib special on Friday and Saturday nights is... read more

A true family neighborhood place. Been around for a while, but has always had friendly, efficient service and home style cooking. And going as often as we do, we're treated like family. I love the chicken teriyaki and my wife swears by the chicken fried steak.

The food was okay and service was ... tired and not very friendly. The waitress looked like she was worn out and ready to go home, this was at lunch time. The decor looks 50 years old. Parking is behind the building and the entrance is through the bar unless you walk around to the front door. The bar is... More

My family has been eating at the Cock-a-Doodle for over 50 years. Great steaks, ample portions, and the staff are always friendly and courteous. Sure, the décor may be a little tired, but it gives the place character!

I have been eating at this restaurant for FORTY years! You can be assured the food is always the same quality. It's a nice feeling with homestyle food. Love the potatoes that come with breakfast (which is served all day long). Owners are usually always nearby. You won't be disappointed if you want the homemade kind of food, you can't... More

Old, dark & nasty. Dirty too I might add. I'll never go back to this dump. I walked into the place and was met with cigarette smoke and dirty looks.

Like coming home, the staff has a warm greeting and is always glad to see you. Fun people watching the regulars. Good hardworking friendly staff; real good home-style cooking with comfort foods like panckaes and eggs, tasty sandwhiches, steak and chicken and burgers. The happy hour menu is a meal in itself. Always nice to come back.

We decided to try this local restaurant and found it to be just "okay". They breakfast was pretty standard, nothing special. It was very quiet which I liked because we were able to converse with everyone in our party. The waitress was attentive and refreshing the coffee quite frequently. We did notice that there were a lot of regulars. The... More

My family and I frequent this establishment. The food is good as well as affordable. The staff are friendly and competent. Try the bbq ribs, delicious! We like to sit in the bar while we eat but the dining room is also nice. Friday night karoke is a blast!

This family owned little restaurant and bar is an excellent place for breakfast. Although I am not Puertegese, I now want to be, just for the linguica (sausage). I cannot go to the Cock-A-Doodle without some form of lingucia and eggs. Next time I'll see if I can get it on my cereal. Shhh, don't tell anybody, this place is... More
