This a favorite place for the locals. If you want an excellent meal at a reasonable price, this is the place. As residents, we frequent all of the great Paso Robles restaurants and know them well. Chico's is a popular place for breakfast and lunch but it is also great for dinner. Known especially for seafood for dinner, the wine... More

Had a great lunch here with friends. We took advantage of the outdoor table on a warm day. Food arrived quickly and we thought it quite tasty.

After a somewhat late lunch, we were looking for a low-key restaurant where we could get a light dinner at a reasonable price. Found that place at Chico's Café. If you're looking for ambiance, go elsewhere, but if good fresh food at reasonable prices is your goal, you will enjoy Chico's. Seafood was fresh and well prepared (we had scallops... More

Chico's is a small (possibly family run) restaurant that is moderately priced in downtown. We were looking for a light meal of good food. We were not in the mood for a fancy or upscale experience. The quality of the food was very good and the service excellent. Chico made some of the best lobster bisque ever! He split an... More

We went here because of Tripadvisor's reviews, but I desappointed because 1) they were sold out of many options 2) menu was unclear (why there wasn't any exact list what does those portions includes? I hate capers and mine was full of it) 3) vegetables and potatoes were best part of meal but not enough of them 4) portion was... More

A menu with lots of variation, good portions, and everything perfectly cooked. We've had breakfast and dinner there, and will more than likely be back on our next trip to Paso.

On a beautiful, warm evening we sat outside at Chico's. We ordered the Alaskan Halibut Florentine and the farm-raised, grilled Salmon specials. Each came with a large, delicious salad. The fish was perfectly cooked and perfectly delicious. A great meal.

They do maybe 1/2 dozen different seafood dinners for around $25.00@ that come with a big fresh salad, fresh mixed vegetables and a potato. We recently enjoyed a very good halibut and a sole dinner and we came back the next day and tried breakfast and were pleased as well. Every-time we in in Paso Robles we must make a... More

We were out and about quite early and just happened upon Chico's. The service was so friendly and the smiles were a great start to our day. Crispy waffles were an item on the breakfast menu and we were SO pleased that we both ordered them-just the best!This is one waffle you won't want to share.

Stumbled upon this cafe and tried it because they had outdoor seating just across from the park. It's small and we weren't sure what to expect. Got happily surprised by the wonderful breakfast we had and great service too!
