The food at Chico's was really good. I would recommend the cajun scalloped potatoes and mini-burgers from the starter menu. The portions are the perfect sized. They have english menus, you just have to ask the waitstaff.

A perfect place for lunch. One of the best tasting burgers I have ever eaten. It is not really cheap but lunch deal (EUR 9,5) is definitely worth a try. The place is very recently renovated, very cosy, also outside seating is nice and roomy. Would recommend this to anyone.

Our food (burgers and Cajun chicken) was awful. The chicken was smothered in bland sauce and burgers were less than average. There was no atmosphere and everything was way overpriced (€17 for a burger with 2 thin parttys stuck together with a cheese slice). I would have way preferred to go to mc Donald's and save my money

Chico's is found in most of the bigger cities (on finnish standards..) in Finland. They're usually located in shopping malls and I think it's a perfect place for Chico's. This is a good place to sit down, relax and let your feet rest from all he shopping ;) And mostly, enjoy the food.
To be clear, yes, this place serves burgers but they're from a different world than McDonald's or similar. Also, the atmosphere is also cosier and you don't feel a urge to rush out from the restaurant as soon as you've wolfed down your meal.

The place describes itself as an american-style bistro and had I ever been to the states, I could say if it were true or false. But I assume they're not far off with their description. Their meny consists of fish dishes, barbeque, salads and burgers and I'm sure everyone will find a pleasing meal. There are also some cocktails and american-style desserts, such as pancakes and brownies, available.

The best part of the chain for me is that they're really adaptive to customer's wishes. Since I'm not a fan of regular fries, I find it nice to have the opportunity to change the sides for a salad, for example. They also have sweet potatoe fries that are worth a try! Also, if you don't like an item on the meal, you can ask to take it off. For example, if you don't like the sauce on your salad, you can ask the salad entirely without or on the side, so you can add the amount of your personal preference.

Chain restaurant with typical american food. Good, tasty and simple.

However they have two burger related things that really impressed me. Yep, I'm a burget lover.
- Chicken Chevre is served with a grilled chicken fillet and a slice of melted goat cheese. Different and delicious
- All their burgers can be ordered with real tasty whole wheat buns

Check out their specials which change regularly and always portrait some US sub-cousine (e.g. hawaian, texas, etc.)
