Both the food and the service are excellent and have even improved over the some 20 years since I first had a meatloaf dinner at Chefs! I have had meals there over the years with friends and family.

My husband and I sat on the stools at the counter. The food was very good. The bean soup was spectacular. I ordered an open faced steak sandwich with... More

Having passed this restaurant too many times to count over the years, we stopped in for lunch and loved it. We shared a turkey melt and a grilled chicken sandwich with mushrooms. Both were spot on, and the chicken sandwich was particularly good, with thickly sliced real chicken meat and beautifully sauteed mushrooms. We both had home made chips with... More

Was served cold food, had a problem telling anyone about it, due to our disappearing server. Re-ordered something fast as my date was already 1/2 done, she finished & I ate why she waited. Nobody offered to do anything about the problem, and was charged full price for everything. Apparently no management on duty during a busy dinner hour. Sent... More

My husband loves meatloaf and mashed potatoes. There have been times when we've gone out that he got it just warm. He asked the waitress if they could make sure it's... More

One of the few mom and pop places still around. Good Food with a lot of choices. Love the AM rubbish platter! The cash only aspect is the only thing I dislike due to the fact I hate paying fees.
