I have been to the Chips in Orange and Fairfield Connecticut several times. The food is consistently good and their famous pancakes should be famous. The service is always friendly and even during peak periods the staff is efficient. They are known for their breakfast and I suggest sticking with breakfast. If you want more of a meal there are...

Drove an hour to finally visit because I heard the pancakes are amazing. Ummm.. No. Pancakes are really good but eggs & bacon were pitiful. Coffee was tinted water - bad for diner standards. They've got a variety of flavored syrups (same as iHop..) but no variety of pancakes besides buttermilk & whole wheat. Overall the waitress was chipper &... More

We stopped in Chip's Family Restaurant at about 10:30 AM on a Sunday morning. There was a line forming, including a party of 17 who had called ahead to be sure that they had a spot. The hostess was a little vague when explaining to the 'new to the line' as to which particular group they were behind, and in... More

Long story, short: Three tired adults and six hungry teenagers in New Haven on a dreary Saturday, looking for a quick but satisfying lunch. Pizza!? Seems the logical solution. But with a demoralizing two hour wait and the snow still falling, we decided to hop on 95 for a couple of exits and give Chips a try. It seemed very... More

Honestly, I don't know of anywhere that has better pancakes. I've never even heard anyone suggest there were. Also, the other food is great too. Excellent sweet potato fries, surprisingly.

I 've been to Chips many times and it is one the best places to get breakfast in Connecticut. They have a huge variety of pancakes that should make IHOP jealous, with four kinds of syrups. The only thing that matches the pancake variety is the omelet menu, yeah they got a lot of different omelets. As you can guess... More

Three challenges when you got to this restaurant. 1) Finding it- saw the sign on I-95 S to get off at Exit 41 but nothing after that, 2) Finding a parking place - the place was packed on a Thursday at 11 am, and 3) Making up your mind of what to order navigating through an extensive menu. The third... More

It was late in the evening and I wanted a breakfast type burrito and ended up going to Chips. I have been to many times before and figured if anyone could get me what I wanted, it would be them. They made my breakfast burrito custom to the way I like it!!! Hit the spot!

Our family, of ten, went to Chips on a Sunday morning. It was crowded, but we waited under five minutes to be seated. The server was attentive, pleasant and always nearby. The food was tasty and we never waited long for coffee refills.
