We both ordered the special of the day; fried chicken (three small but very tasty pieces) served with mashed potatoes and gravy (well seasoned and tasty) corn (frozen and reheated. I tried a rather tasteless watery bite and left the rest. My husband ate his). Warm crusty rolls served with butter. (Good rolls). A choice of salad or soup of... More

Cozy delicious dining in a warm wood and etched glass dining room. We enjoyed prime rib, tasty trout, scrumptious sides, and flaming ice cream for a birthday treat. Great place to meet friends, family, or business associates. We ordered from the menu but generous buffet also available in more casual atmosphere. Dessert tray full of decadent temptations. Just a few... More

We came in and received a very friendly greeting. We were seated right away. It was about 2 pm when we stopped by restaurant. My 86 year old grandma was visiting. The waitress came over and took our order. We all had soup and salad bar. I ordered 2 chicken wings and a coffee for Grandma. We all had water... More

The "tale of two restaurants" really tells the story, but I need to emphasize that the food is the same on both sides. That being said, it is Nebraska at its best...lots of food you grew up loving, or wish you would have. We never miss a chance to try to completely try every item (this takes years). we never...

We stayed all night in York, Nebraska on our way going to and again coming home from Colorado. Both nights we ate at Chances R restaurant. The first time we ate there we were seated in a softly lit and comfortable dining room. We all had the evening special which was pan fried chicken. It included a nice salad with... More

Where do I begin... my hotel highly recommended and so do the reviews here. I thought homecookin sounded good and filling after a long day on the road. I arrived and I knew right away I should have judged a book by its cover but went for it anyway. I ordered chicken fried steak that comes with the homemade bread... More

We went to Chances R on the recommendation of a coach at York College. My wife and I split the prime rib. The meat was excellent and very flavorful. The bread that was served with the meal was fantastic. My son had a steak which was awesome as well. The experience was wonderful. The people in Nebraska are very friendly... More

We liked the old-fashioned sign and the copper awnings on the exterior of Chances R… It was a little after regular lunch hours but the restaurant still had quite a few customers. We're guessing that this is the ‘go to’ restaurant in York! Chances R has a nice upscale look to it, which is a bit of a surprise considering... More

Wonderful food, courteous and attentive waitresses, surprising value makes this one of the better restaurants in the midwest we've visited. Steaks and seafood were exceptional.

Too many restaurants today are noisy and insist on loud music to boot. On our visit to Chances R, we found a quiet atmosphere which felt good after a day's drive. I have to say two things about the prime rib I had: they know how to "well done" exactly right and it was very tender. What a treat. This... More
