Great Breakfast!

We enjoyed a great breakfast at Chico's! We actually decided to come here because the line outside was so long! It was well worth the wait. They actually opened up another room next door. I'm not sure, but they might be adding on to the restaurant as the main dining room is quite small. You... read more

We dropped in for lunch this Memorial Day. Service very slow even though the place was only half full. My wife and I had BLTs. Both rather cold and soggy. Kids PBJ and corny dog OK. Staff friendly.

Chico does a GREAT job and the food is excellent. Service is always solid and a good location right on the park.

Was there during the Paso Robles wine festival. Small place, but tables move quickly. And huge portions and great food! Loved that they offer corned beef hash as an alternative to bacon or sausage!

Although it is small, this is a wonderful place to eat with a friendly and relaxing atmosphere. We went for lunch and enjoyed it so much, we returned for dinner. We had salads for lunch (Chinese chicken salad and, the lunch special, spinach strawberry salad) -- both were outstanding. For dinner, we enjoyed the scampi and the salmon dinner special... More

Our hostess recommended we eat here on our visit. They are known for serving fresh fish. I had the fresh halibut and it was good. The meal came with fresh vegetables and a wonderful salad.

Chico's is a little almost hidden restaurant right in the heart of downtown Paso Robles. Chico's has some of the best seafood I have had! Try the clams or muscles. (And I don't usually even like seafood.) This restaurant is lacking in atmosphere, but it makes up for it in the food!!! So give it a chance! A delicious menu... More

Went there Friday night 3/6/15 with family during a mini-reunion in Paso Robles. It was a Friday night in Lent, so we were looking for seafood. Checked the menus posted outside several restaurants in town. Chico's seemed to have the best menu selection of seafood. Made a reservation that afternoon and hoped for the best, but our expectations weren't very... More

I live in San Diego and we have lots of great seafood places to pick from. This place in Paso is worth seeking out. It is not a mexican seafood place as the name implies, they are more european in their approach than anything else. Items besides seafood are available. It is a very small family owned and operated establishment... More

We always ask the locals. Our hotel operator told us they had great seafood and we would get 10% off with the room key. We walked in on a Monday night and there was only one table, so we thought uh-oh! Buuuuut - - - The food was AWESOME! Really Really Great. Highly recommended.
