been here a few times. ordered pancakes most of the time which were pretty good... but it's a pancake i don't think i can remember too many bad pancakes i've had in my life....
Ordered a chicken salad once and not sure if it was actually chicken or some other type of mystery meat, looked sort of like chicken, but tasted like ham.

Other than that the owner looks like he is on drugs and looks like someone on america most wanted.

Chip's is part pancake house, part diner and all-around family restaurant. It is the heart of our town of Orange, Ct. Food is always good, atmosphere homey, people are great. It's our "go-to" place when we are hungry. You have to stand in line for breakfast. They serve all 3 meals, we enjoy eating there anytime.

The food is good, great breakfast, service is very good.

The restaurant is VERY VERY over crowded.
Once you are seated, and thats usually a long wait, you cant get to your table without bumping into people eatting their meal.
FORGET IT IF YOU HAVE A WALKER OR WHEELCHAIR.

Its very very cramped and uncomfortable

We have been going to Chips for many years (we are locals). The new owners have punched up the menu/decor/marketing. The food is average diner food. As with almost all diners, the breakfast items excel. The "best pancakes in CT" are good. Generous portions and fair prices. Generally friendly serivce. No fine dining here---just a solid place for a restaurant meal without pretention.
