Stopped there for dinner twice last week. Drinks were generous. Service was great and very attentive. Food was plentiful and very good. This is a great place for burgers of many varieties

Juicy yummy burgers! Great variety and fair prices. The only reason it did not get 5 stars it is because when we visited, service was not up to par. It was our first time there and the waiter wasn't nice when we asked questions about the menu items. Other than that, we were pleased with the place.

Great drinks, great shakes, and great service! Cool atmosphere and nice stop for family. The waitstaff brought the kids balloons, and they were very accommodating with some of the coupons that we had.

I got the pulled pork sandwich which I would rate a 4/10. The pork was lacking a smoked flavor, perhaps it was done in a crockpot. Also, seemed like they were trying to mask the lack of flavor of the pork by drowning it in genetic Kraft BBQ sauce. *fries were good and seasoned *Girlfriends Philly cheesesteak was good (they...

14 of us gathered here for a birthday celebration. Our food was served quickly and it was delicious! I just didn't like having to wait in line to order the food.

I've eaten at most of the burger places in Lakeland, and so far none of them come close to Chop Shop! Their burgers are always fresh, juicy and packed with flavor. When I'm feeling particularly unhealthy I order the fries loaded with bacon and cheese and enjoy the gluttony. The service is spotty. We've experienced longer than average waits at... More

Excellent burgers, fries and onion rings. My wife got the shroom burger and I got the rebel. It was nice to sit on the patio and people watch. We'll definitely be back.

Went for dinner, and my party ordered from across the menu. The turkey burger was EXCELLENT. The bacon burger was described as very good. The veggie burger was described as very good. The side salad came in a taco bowl and was described as excellent. You order at the counter but the food is delivered to the table. The decor... More
