“Good food but tacky service when the restaurant is busy.”

Restaurant details
Reviewed April 20, 2012

I've reviewed this restaurant before and while it remains a good restaurant with good food, the service when the place is busy leaves a lot to be desired. Breakfast is a busy time but there are only 2 wait persons. We waited a long while to gave an order taken, tables were waiting to have menus given, orders were lining up at the warming ststion,completely ignored by the wait persons, a table that was used still had dirty cutlery and crockery when we left about 45 minutes later. A lady, presumably the proprietor/owner, stood by and just watched the harried staff. She also used a cloth that had been used to wipe up a spill on a table to wipe a plate before the cook slid eggs on to it!
It remains a good place with goid food but be prepared for bad service if you hit breakfast rush time.

Whatever you order at Chaos, Dana and her staff will make it great. Chaos is consistently good food in a fun environment.

We had breakfast every day here while working in Artesia. The staff started to treat us like regulars which is nice. They could stand to have one or two more servers during the busy morning time.

Great place for breakfast or lunch. It is a little loud in the restaurant, and they are only open for breakfast and lunch, but the food is very good and proportions are large.

We stopped here for breakfast on a road trip. SO glad we ate here instead of a spot with some golden arches down the street. Great Tex-Mex and traditional Southern diner foods.
I said to the kids as we ate, "This is what they mean when they call biscuits 'light as a feather.'" Friendly wait staff and lots of locals, clearly meeting their friends for breakfast.
I'm sure it's good other times of the day, too, but we were there at breakfast time.
