“OK”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 10, 2013

Chico's is in an old power plant which I thought was kind of cool. They give you chips and salsa while you wait for your food. Very good, the salsa is super spicy though. The food was just average to me not great not terrible. The view of the river is nice and there are lots of turtles you can watch. Has outside seating too. It is a nice atmosphere. It is very inexpensive to eat here.

Located in an old power plant, Chico's provides customers with fast, friendly service while overlooking the Tar River. Food Is wonderful and portions are large.

“Nice view, convenient location, boring food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 26, 2013

The salsa and chips were very good - spicy sauce and fresh tasty chips. If only the food held up to the same standards. I had a taco and enchilada combo with rice and beans. It couldn't put enough salsa on them to make them interesting. We did ask for their hottest sauce, but that just provided heat - no seasoning. The service was good - party of 7 with 2 little ones were served with no problems. It was lunch time and it wasn't really very busy - not a good sign for a restaurant in this location. They have all the necessary parts to make this place popular - outdoor seating area, nice space inside. They just have to spice up the food -- mexican food should have real cheese and non-processed chicken. They need to kick it up a notch.

“Cockroach in the lettuce.”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 1, 2013 via mobile

We were having an okay dinner when a roach crawled out of the lettuce on the plate with the quesadilla. Needless to say there was a collective loss of appetite. The management did not charge us for the food, just the beer and the glass of wine. The food was only okay anyway. The waiter said that the exterminator had just been there and....this is what happens when you're in an old building on the water. Won't be back.
