The slightly irreverent attitude has become our calling card over the years, doing things the way we always have regardless of convention. We're still making fresh hand-crafted burgers, roasting our own turkey and chicken, slow-basting our falling-off-the-bone-tender ribs, and hiring the friendliest people to be part of our team.Why bother? Because bigger and better isn't just an attitude. It's a commitment to everyone who comes through our door.The party is still going strong today. The burgers are still huge, the beer is still cold and we're the best place to watch the game. No matter what part of the country you're in, you are sure to find a neighborhood Champps nearby

Good breakfast

Was pleased with the selection. Was more than what I would serve at home. Everyone was able to choose what they wanted. My grand daughter gave the pancakes a 10.

We went there for their mile high nachos, gyros, and a couple drinks. We sat at the bar. Not too many people were there at the time, but it was difficult to get the bartender's attention. Food was excellent and we will be back for more nachos. I just hope next time there is better service.

The breakfast was really good. I was going to ask what kind of apple juice they served and forgot to.

Upon arriving at the restaurant I was told by Kim that she hoped it was okay that she took it upon herself to put tablecloths on the tables and set up a present table. She mentioned she saw the cake and the colors on it so she put balloons on the tables to match the colors! Value added!!! Server Marcie... More

Ate here because adjoining Best Western Plus was where we were staying and too tired after driving all day to head out to eat. VERY noisy sports bar. Good selection of local and international draft beers, but clueless staff (when I asked about particular beer waiter acknowledged he didn't know and that he only drank Bud Light). I had a... More

Although i have never found anything wrong with the food here, neither has it ever made me want to come back. They serve all the standards, with not much innovation. I find the food to be a little bland. The atmosphere is fine, with a lot of TVs for sports games, its a good place to stop and catch some... More

The buffet breakfast I can't say enough about. Start with the staff. VERY attentive, and right there to serve before you even think of it. Excellent selection, well presented and served on china. Super clean, noise lever not over bearing even when crowded. Six TVs on different stations with news in closed caption.

Great food and drinks with very friendly staff! The service wasn't the quickest, but they did seem to be understaffed for a group our size so I didn't hold it against them. The large soft pretzel, nachos, and French dip were all very good. The draft beer prices were reasonable!
