Went here twice on my trip in the area. Both visits were for breakfast and the omelettes were awesome. Staff is very friendly and im glad i was able to visit out to LA. The decor is also a unique retro setting. Thanks for the two meals and i will be back again.

I really like this restaurant. The building exterior and interior are superb, in that classic American diner style. The food and service is great. It's just what you want and expect from this type of place. They weren't very busy when I went. I don't understand why this place isn't bustling. Pann's and 101 Cafe seem to do well, so... More

Checked out restaurants close to us on Trip Advisor, came across Chips, we had seen it before but wasn't sure if it was open, don't let the look of this place fool you, once inside it was an old fashioned American diner, the food was great and the service even better, wish we had tried it earlier 👍👍

We wanted your classic diner so decided to give this a try for dinner. Place was pretty empty, but staff was friendly and service was good. The food was okay- I suppose what one would expect for a diner!

Chip's Diner is a good place for a casual breakfast or lunch. Food is good and well priced. The milkshakes are amongst the best we've had. Service is quick and friendly. The interior is in need of a refresh, the booths need repairing and maybe some new paint would help. Otherwise recommended for a quick meal.

This is a really nice little restaurant that could easily be missed if you aren't looking for it. The food is great, though, and portions are huge! We went for breakfast and between my husband, myself, and my 17 month old we could've shared the "three stooges" meal with a side of fruit. Omelettes are made with 3 eggs, veggies,... More

This is a great diner that has both American and Mexican items on the menu. The staff was very warm and friendly and for this Minnesota Mexican American, the fact that they were also Mexican American and bilingual was much appreciated! I ordered the chilaquiles, which were too spicy for me, so I traded meals with my white boyfriend who... More

Good food and service. It is the memories that return us over the new hype places. Even my great granddaughter enjoys this old diner, specially the milk shakes!

We visited Chips to Spring a surprise visit on our daughter who was traveling in the states and the staff at Chips couldn't have been more helpful they even gave me a staff apron so I could pretend to be my daughters waitress as part of the surprise. We then all had breakfast and what a feast it was. Lovingly... More

Bring an appetite. I ordered the Huevos Rancheros and received a huge portion. Other diners appeared to have equally large meals. Waitress was friendly, food was good, service was fast, and the price was reasonable.
