This place was spotlessly clean and that is huge to me. The breakfast choices were the standard fare but prepared well. Service was a little slow when we were there and there was only us and one other table. It appeared that there might have been a glitch in the kitchen. I would like to rate it between average and...

We discovered Chico's when 4 years ago and have been there on average every 2 or 3 weeks. It's the best fish restaurant I've been to and Chico's Sand Dabs cannot be beat. Delicious, light, and healthy. His wine selection is very nice, but you can't go wrong with his house wines. His deserts are to die for.

We took the recommendation by one of the locals who reviewed this restaurant here on Trip Advisor, and we weren't disappointed. Nestled next to Cold Stone Creamery, Chico's isn't fancy, but the food is very good and excellent value for Paso Robles. My husband and I both ordered the halibut florentine. ($25) Delicious! It was served with vegetables, sliced roasted... More

We visited twice. The first time was for lunch. The turkey sandwich was really good. My husband had the BBQ beef special, and it was OK, but not worth the price. We did enjoy breakfast there. I had the applesauce pancakes. YUM!

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.
