Im so sorry- its Soo hard to bash a place with such a long and regarded history. My wife's grandparents ate here 50-60 years ago- and we went many times over the years with our family. Family is all dead now, so the wife and...go to visit the cemetery- Been a while- couple of years- so sad to see it has become a neglected, nearly condemned looking structure, and a filthy place inside and out. RUDE service to compliment the condition of the place- Perhaps the rudest I've ever experienced (I'm in the NYC restaurant biz- service is everything in this biz). Sadly, I think its time to close the doors or a total rejuvenation by new ownership.More

A classic old style diner that is absolutely worth your time for many reasons. The food is freshly prepared, abundant and a great value. Came for breakfast and the choices were many and varied, but also imaginative. SOS was offered as sausage gravy over biscuits...or toast instead of creamed chipped beef, with or without eggs, it was delicious and hearty. Scranton was a stop off the interstate for us but Chick’s, open for all mealtimes, would be a good idea, especially if you are a diner type as it’s the real deal. Cash only. Prompt friendly service.More

We’ve been going to Chick’s for years, from french fries and burgers after school, to when we were young enough to head over after bar hours, to now at Just a little bit older. The food has always been great, never a disappointment. We had...catered food from Chick’s this past summer for our son’s graduation party- roast beef with their gravy (our son’s favorite) and mashed potatoes. It was a huge hit with people asking all afternoon where we had ordered it from. Some thought it was homemade. There’s always something for everyone here, with a 24 hour menu and great service. It’s a small diner quick-stop off of Interstate 81 that you really shouldn’t miss.More

What a throw back for a restaurant. Locals are known because for some it must be a daily visit. Food is down home and tasty. It was an old fashioned diner that you really can't find many of anymore. Very friendly staff and the prices...were great. They have daily specials.More

We decided to pop into this place for brekky. It was full of locals which is always a good sign, that the food is good. We was in awe with this place, as it was just like in the movies. (Well we are tourists from...OZ lol) Coffees or tea were being poured as soon as we sat down. The food was freshly cooked in front of us, and we all tucked in to a hearty breakfast. We was entertainment for the locals, as they couldn’t understand why we was taking so many piccys. Thx for making us feel welcomed in your little diner. From AustraliaMore

Dirty, gross, food tasted spoiled. Service was abrupt. Do yourself a favor and find somewhere else to eat.
