Quick and easy lunch, not bad for a chain.

I go here semi frequently with coworkers for a quick lunch. It's a standard chain, and very consistent with the quality. Never had a bad meal here, the portions are generous, and the specials (usually for appetizers) are a good deal.

The food was okay, nothing spectacular. A little surprised that its rated number 8 out of 83 restaurants. Didn't blow my hair back.

An update to my May 8, 2015 review, and subsequent reply from management: I am still waiting to hear back from Chelo's management personnel. I filled out the form that the representative requested that I fill out. But I haven't been contacted, as the May 11, 2015 management response to my May 8 2015 review said would happen after I...

This place seems to be a Rhode Island chain that can be compared to Applebee's or TGIFridays. I had a turkey burger that was very juicy and flavorful. My husband had a sandwich and actually commented the Cesar salad was very good which says a lot as he's not much of a salad person. Our visit was just as the... More

The price and serving will make you happy you stopped in. The hostess made us feel welcome, promptly took our order, and kept us well-hydrated.

Chelo's is a family type restaurant chain with about 8 restaurants in Rhode Island. We went to the store in Providence, RI. The decor is dated and worn but we were in a comfortable booth. The menu consists mostly of burgers and sandwiches although there is also salads, entrees, etc. The strongest part of the restaurant was our friendly server... More

On Saturday I met up with family from out of state at Chelo's. They were already seated when we arrived and had ordered Apps. There were a total of 5 adults and 2 children. The server was very slow and didn't follow up on any of our requests. We had to ask for extra napkins 4 times before they were... More
