Dined for lunch today. Ordered a cheeseburger and a pancake kids meal. Was excited to try their famous pancakes. First of all, the service was horrible. When they didn't ask how I wanted my burger cooked, I should have known it wasn't going to be good. It was the driest most flavorless burger I ever had, not that anyone came... More

Before I had gone here, people told me how great it was and even that they had the #1 pancakes in all of Connecticut. So you can imagine my high expectations when I finally did go. It wasn't quaint or cute, it was located in a small outlet center. The inside was huge. I didn't realize how big it was... More

Terrific place for breakfast, especially on a Sunday morning, but beware of the long lines at that time. Pancakes are the best with a variety of syrups available. Portions are more than reasonable. Waite service is usually very attentive. Lunches and dinner are average. Their signature dishes are breakfast. Located in a small mall area, there is plenty of parking.... More

We came here with the kids... who actually told me they didn't like the pancakes. Which, if you knew my kids, would absolutely shock you. But the pancakes were a bit chewy and mushy. Not what I would want in my own pancakes. So that was a bummer. They did, however, manage to hoover in all of the bacon I... More

Traveling with family is often hit or miss when choosing a place to eat. Chip's is a hit! The portions are large and the prices are not. This is evidently a small chain and we assume the standards are consistent.

Diner food serving breakfast all day. Large portions of good, clean eats. Awesome salads, Greek offerings, pancakes, huge sandwiches, hamburgers...if there isn't something you like on the menu, then there is something wrong with you!

It was amazing. I now know why they are the best restaurant for pancakes. All types of pancakes including gluten/dairy free. I had regular 3 stack, my wife had the key lime pie with chorizo scramble. My son had the kids Mac and Cheese and my daughter did regular scramble eggs. It's what I call good home made food.

Chips is that friendly neighborhood restaurant that, to quote the theme song from the show "Cheers" -- "Everybody knows your name". Great food, great people, right around the corner, and everyone working there greets you like an old friend. In most cases, since we've been coming to Chips for their excellent food and service at incredibly reasonable prices for quite... More

Chip's has been around for 50 years, starting with a location in Orange, CT. Their reputation grew steadily and now they have at least 5 locations. It's family owned and operated and the manager/owner at the Fairfield location is always friendly and desiring to please his customers. It's busy all the time and service is quick and friendly. Not a... More
