It was time for lunch and I wanted a burger, but not just any bigger. This had to be a really good one. So I gave Chelo's a shot and boy did they come through. Medium cooked 8-ounce cheeseburger with steak fries. Probably one of the best burgers I've had in about five years. Lots of people think of Chelo's... More

This was one of the best around not any more. Went to Chelos service was very prompt and good. Ordered chowder was Very greasy and not tasty. Ordered. Fish & Chips again Very Greasy and not the best quality. I am sorry to say Chelos has seen me for the last time. You have lost a 40 year customer.

Ah yes.. Nothing builds hunger like being stuck in 2+ hour Boston MA rush hour traffic. So heading back through Rhode Island to get to our hotel, we stumbled upon chelo's restaurant. We were greeted and seated. I chose the Bourbon st BBQ 1/2 lb burger and my friend ordered the chicken Parmesan. I ordered the Boston lager and my... More

A group of us met here for an early dinner prior to the Paw Sox game. I like spicy food so I ordered the SouthWest Burger (as did 1 or 2 others) and was disappointed to find that I couldn't detect even a hint of spice in it (menu says it contains jalapeño bacon). The service was good and the... More

Great place and locally owned. Good food and service. I liked that there were foods that were indigenous to New England and that they were made on the premises.

We went there for lunch. The food was pretty good. We both had the fish and chips--huge portion and yummy. The customer service left something to be desired. We were given the check before we had finished half our meals! The restaurant was quite empty and I am not sure why we were being rushed.

Usually an open table and day of the week. Good food and friendly staff.

Probably Gregg's main competitor, but comes no where near the quality or price. Tries to be the RI family favorite, but their dishes just don't make the grade.
