I love Chances R. It is a family owned business that has been around York, Nebraska for years. The food is awesome and the service is great. Always busy and full of people.

After driving for 2 days, decided to go out and relax prior to the shorter next day drive. Read about this restaurant and hotel recommended. After being seated, overhead couple next to us that was getting ready to leave that the service was very bad that night. Our server (Kay) greeted us by leaning on the table next to us... More

The restaurant has two distinct areas for dining. The pub side feels the way and Old English Pub feels. Superior Ambience. The diner side is exactly what you expect from a classic diner. My first visit was for a Saturday Salad Bar. Wow! The varieties offered were astounding and a lot of it. Freshly prepared offerings and not a single... More

We stopped here for lunch. The prime rib sandwiches were ok but the bread was soggy. Chicken fried steaks were a bit greasy. Service was good. The main dining area looked really nice but we were seated in a smaller dining area were it was clean but crowded and not as fancy.

Classic. Historic. Affordable. Delicious. Our prime rib specials were excellent! Only wish I had tried their homemade desserts! Worth the drive! You only have one "Chances R"

Took a group to dinner there a couple weeks ago and some of us had chicken - classic mistake - should've stayed with the red meat because it was so dry. Everything else was really tasty though. Service was average - host wasn't the most pleasant so my first impression was not a good one w/ the restaurant. Cool environment... More

I met my family here for supper on a Tuesday evening. They sat us over by the bar, I think because we had more than 4 people. Service was a little slow, but there was only one waitress and she did great. The food took awhile, and my fried chicken was cold by the time I got it, but the... More

Chances R is always the best! From soup, salads, chicken, sandwiches, prime rib and my favorite " Sunday Morning Brunch", everyone is good, really good!! The only thing I don't like is, I eat to much! Plan on a great "doggy bag" to take home. "Chances R" you'll love it as much as this long time Yorkite.
