Sauteed mushroom appetizer was perfectly cooked and seasoned, the pasta primavera was also very good, the vegetables and the pasta were just right...cooked and... read more

Had called for reservation a few times, and got a "full" voicemail. Went downtown and found this restaurant is currently not open. Re-opening sometime soon. At least should put a message stating they are not open.

Fabulous fish and chips. Boys had breakfast and loved it. We will come again when we pass through Paso Robles. Great service. Quickly accommodated our party of 6.

Chico's is not fancy but the food is always excellent and is a good deal for what you are getting. Any of the chef's fish dishes are worth trying. If you like sand dabs you will not be disappointed. The top rating is based on the food not the decor.

We had lunch at Chico's Cafe. What a great find, right in the middle of town. They have a great menu for breakfast, lunch and dinner and daily specials. The locals eat here so it much be good. The food we ordered was great. We'll definitely eat here again next time we're in Paso Robles.

My wife and I have eaten at this restaurant for breakfast twice, and once for dinner. It has been always pleasant, great service, and good food! We consider it as an alternative to the numerous and more expensive tourist restaurants in town. Better service here than many of the eateries in town.

On the Plaza Paso Robles. Great food. Excellent service. Special night. Special Sand Dabs prepared great with steamed veggies and red potatoes. Dinner included soup or salad. Hubby's Salmon was equally great. Highly recommend. Will stop when ever in Paso Robles .

We were staying at the Paso Robles Inn and I asked Siri to recommend a close place for breakfast. Siri suggested Chico's. I then looked at TripAdvisor and found several good reviews on Chico's Cafe. The restaurant is a short walk along the park from the Paso Robles Inn. We loved the restaurant. It is not fancy, just very good... More

We had been driving for about 7 hours and were hot, tired and very hungry. It was close to 8:30 PM and we were concerned about finding a place where we could relax and enjoy a good meal. Did we ever luck out when we found Chicos! Even though it was half an hour away from their closing time, they... More

It's SOOOOO nice to fine a good breakfast place while traveling through. Chico's had excellent omelets served by really nice people, which I rate pretty high in my pre-caffeinated state first thing in the morning. This little cafe may become our go-to breakfast place in Paso Robles.
