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.

We had a fairly early flight out of LAX so stayed in Hawthorne. We found Chip's while cruising around. It was a great little place. Very attentive server. We had burgers, I had the turkey burger, hubby had the bacon cheeseburger. It wasn't very busy but I enjoyed the it.

This was close to the hotel and with little kids it made an easy choice for dinner. The 50's theme is pretty cool - highlighted by the authentic cash register from a long time ago. The waiter was really friendly and the fact that the cash register still is in use - did not object to being photographed or examined... More

Really tasty food. The chocolate chip waffle was so good. Sausage and eggs were cooked perfectly. Really inexpensive considering the amount of food
