The Chef has been in Cleveland a long time, but I hadn't tried it. The chicken biscuit is excellent, and is one of the best I've had.

I absolutely LOVE this place! They have great food and fair prices! I use to go here as a child for breakfast and lunch and still do as much as I can. Their Burgers are so good and huge! Their biscuits and especially their biscuit & gravy is VERY good!!!

My favorite spot in Cleveland for a quick breakfast and the best biscuits around hands down! The steak biscuits are my favorite and the prices are very reasonable. For some reason the sights and smells when I walk in always remind me of a first class state fair. The only thing is I have no idea where the picture on... More

This little restaurant used to be an old Burger Chef restaurant from the late 60's early 70's. They still have great burgers at a good price and a lot of the original equipment. I loved going in and seeing the original stainless steel counter was still there! Nostalgia? Yep,loving every bite of it. Good shakes too.
