We were driving through on I80 and it was around lunchtime. A quick look on TripAdvisor recommended this place. It is a couple mile drive off the highway, but certainly worth it. The French dip was fantastic, the burgers looked good too!

We had a large group for a business dinner. Ask to be seated in the west dining room, it's a completely different experience than the east dining room. Everything on the menu is good, but the prime rib is the best ever.

This is a very good place that friends brought me to during my visit. I had the club sandwich, which was enormous and very tasty. It comes piled with a side of crinkle-cut fries. It was so much food that I could barely finish it, and that's pretty unusual. The prices are a good value, and service was very friendly... More

ChancesR was the place to go for good food 45 years ago when I was a college student in York, and it is even better now when my class returned there for a reunion dinner last week. The prime rib buffet is great value for the price. There is a now a large banquet room suitable for group gatherings.

We decided to try the Sunday brunch. There are plenty of options to choose from. The roast beef was just the way I like it. Everything I tried was delicious. Service was friendly. Our only complaint, was the price of the brunch per person. We had sticker shock when we received the bill. Now, if I had tried one of... More
