“Amazing Hamburgers”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2005

Chester's has my absolute favorite hamburgers. My family and I usually go every Friday, and have for years. I will admit, they're not en pointe every single time, but the times we are disappointed are very few and far between. The previous reviewer must have visited on an off night. Their burgers are juicy, cooked to perfection and comparatively large. Their fries are TO DIE FOR when cooked properly. They have home-style fries, with the potato skin still on. These are the only french fries my mother likes to eat, not frozen and processed like most fast-food restaurants serve. No business is 100% accurate, but since I've been to Chester's so many times, I can say with assurance that you are more than likely to be very happy with your order.

It's a tad more expensive than McDonald's and Whataburger, but their food quality is consistently excellent and the portion sizes are not shrinking, like at McDonald's in the wake of "SuperSize Me." The restaurant style requires you to pick up your order at the counter, but there are employees that come around with free tea and water refills.

I absolutely love Chester's Hamburgers, and I would say that they DO have the best burgers on both sides of the Pecos.

“Best Burger Either Side of The Pecos? Umm, NO...”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2005

Chester's runs radio ads by local talk personalities proclaiming it "the best burgers EITHER side of the Pecos". Sorry, but that is misleading at best. After all the hype, we ate there recently and were very disappointed. The green chile cheeseburger had pretty good green chile and cheese, but below average burger. It had kind of a weird, mushy texture and very bland burger flavor. Extra black pepper and Tabaco needed to be added to add flavor. The fries were also kind of luke warm and not that good. Bottom line is that the local Texas chain Whataburger sells a far better burger, with much less hype.
