They recently hired an awesome karaoke DJ Suzy B and she entertains on tuesday nights, its a lot of fun and the 2.99 margaritga's are delish but seriously they really need to do something about the...

Chelo's is the perfect family restaurant! Excellent food at excellent prices! Service is impeccable. The staff helps grandma get in the restaurant. The booths and dining area are big enough to accommodate grandparents' rollaters and children's high chairs. Food selection is wide and varies! There's something for everyone! I can't wait to go back again!

If you want a great burger Chelos is the place to stop! They have a good sized menu with typical American food but what I come back for are the burgers. Big, juicy, and loaded with toppings. My favorite has onions rings, bbq sauce, and ranch dressing on top of it. The atmosphere is bright and lively and the staff... More

This chelo's has major problems. the staff is inconsistent and the food is the same. I gave it 3 chances and will travel further to Newport avenue because it is far superior and upholds the Chelo image

Chelo's is a nice family owned place. They offer a good menu, with great deals, on really good food. This is a great alternative to the boring chain family type of places. The staff is always friendly, knowledgeable, and attentive. Their prices are more than accommodating if you are on a budget and the portions are large. If you are... More

Chelo's is a Rhode Island "chain" if you will. It reminds you of a Chili's or Applebee's but it's not as ridiculous as one of those chains. It's not fancy schmancy and not first date material. Beyond that the food is good. The atmosphere is that of one of those earlier mentioned chains. There is a bar and regular seating.... More

Ate at Chelo's EP for the first time in several years yesterday and the food was no more than average. My friend had fish which she said was bland and I had spaghetti with a seafood and marinara sauce. While the marinara sauce was good the seafood was all over cooked. Not a horrible meal, but mediocre enough that i... More

I had read about several restaurants in this area and one if the reviewers indicated that he had a much better meal for a lot lower cost just down the street at Chelo's. So I called upon my SIRI to direct me and we found a surprisingly great restaurant. The servers Angelina and Morgananne could not have been nicer and... More
