Fast service, sometimes tepid food

The service is incredibly fast, despite the fact the staff sometimes appear confused (multiple wait staff came to our table). The food arrives so fast that you'll wonder if the order was prepared before you got there ... which might explain why the food is sometimes less than hot when it arrives... read more

This place is dirty and it stinks. If the dining room is like that what is the kitchen like? The food was all frozen processed stuff...better places in town like Mel's Raspberry patch!

We love trying new places for breakfast...it is my husband's favorite meal. We passed Christo's many times when in Sanford. Recently, we stopped in with friends. This is a nice little spot...serving a very nice breakfast. The blueberry pancakes were definitely something to write home about! Standard breakfast fare...nicely cooked eggs exactly the way you want them. Our server was... More

Stopped in for beer & food after a charity bicycle ride. Server was friendly & chatty. But when it was time to pay, the checks were messed up with wrong items on wrong checks. Now I received my credit card bill and the amount with tip that I paid had been increased by a couple of dollars. Good food but... More

We stumbled across Christo's Place ,and as we approached it, I remembered someone telling me about their great food. We where promptly greeted by our server (can't remember her name-tall brunette woman), she... More

Stopped in for lunch while visiting downtown Sanford with my wife and daughter. Wasn't sure what to expect, looks like any other downtown eatery, but glad we chose this place. It's a nice, quiet little place with excellent food and service. Ordered the Greek nachos as an appetizer and highly suggest for a group of three or more. It was... More

Food is great, best blueberry pancakes. Posting for senior discount is lacking. When paying the cashier I asked for sr discount and was told that the discount only applies to meals costing $5 and up. We were two of us for breakfast and even though the total bill was close to $19.00 for eggs, coffee, pancakes no 1 item was... More

It is a locals breakfast place and service is good. Home fries are just Ok but they do a good job on eggs with good amount of meats and veggies in Omlettes.

You know there are alot of things I miss about Maine. This place is one of the reasons why, the atmosphere is nice, staff is great. Been here twice already on my stay in Sanford, and will come see it when I come back. Food is great maybe a dollar more than what I like, but the staff and the... More
