Consistently good

Best pancakes around, bar none! Chips is consistently good. The food is always served promptly and it's always hot. The maple pancake syrup is sinfully good. My wife and I have been regulars at Chips for years and there is no reason to believe that will ever change. Although Chips is always... read more

* Large potions * average service (sometimes less than average) * average decor (They remodeled recently but it still looks old and outdated) * extensive menu (similar to your average diner) *decent wait on weekend mornings (its always been this way and moves fast if you wait it out. They do not allow call ahead seating) *some gluten free options... More

Going out to lunch with my 84 year old mom is always an interesting adventure. So, when we were trying to figure out where to go & she started talking about scrambled eggs & french toast, the answer was obvious. Now, I'm trying to eat healthy these days, so I thought for sure this would pose a challenge for me.... More

So many breakfast options that it took me awhile to decide what to try. The really friendly waitress helped me pick a California omelet and dang! It was awesome!! The home fries were great too!! He had the sausage gravy and regular pancakes and he enjoyed his breakfast also! I would definitely go back, the pumpkin walnut pancakes sound amazing!

We were looking for somewhere to eat as we drove from Boston to Stamford,CT. We saw the sign for Chips off of I 95 at Exit 41 and thought..might as well. We saw it was a great place for pancakes, but we wanted lunch fare. We were not disappointed. From the friendly hello from the man who sat us to... More

We stopped here for a late afternoon lunch. The pancakes and the omelets were well prepared and made with fresh ingredients. Chips has a very large menu and there are many options if you are not interested in breakfast.

My daughter and family ate at your restaurant and was charged double on her card. She has made numerous calls and visits to resolve this issue including a copy of her bank statement, to no avail. I cannot imagine that Chips would risk their reputation on a $50.00 overcharge but apparently Chips feels it is worth the risk. We used... More

We went here after visiting the Pez factory right around the corner. All 3 of us ended up having breakfast for lunch. Service was great and the food came out fast. Husband and I had omelets. I did like that you could order them fluffy or diner style. I like mine diner style. I had an English muffin and potatoes... More

I don't know how long this place has been in business but this was a monthly required Saturday trip with the family as you could either style the pancakes to make yourself happy or find something on the huge menu to fill up on. Now it's just the two of us and a trip like today's is somewhat of remembering;... More

We decided to try this new restaurant opened in Southbury which I believe is a part of the Orange, Ct branch. When we walked in no one was at front desk, we waited a minute or two and then someone said someone would be with us. A gentleman came and greeted us sort of and took us to a table.... More
