We just stopped in for supper after my daughters softball game, I must say I was surprised !! Everything we ordered was actually really good. I had a cheeseburger and it was good. This is definitely a place not to judge by the outside. All the wait staff were very friendly. We will be back for sure !!

When traveling, I am always looking to eat at a local restaurant. The Cyclone is a great, local treasure in Chester. The staff were very friendly and the service was fast. The fried green tomatoes with the signature sour cream is a must!!! Also, Amazing homemade pound cake! Great place, great food!

Get the baked potato with Cyclone sour cream. You will never want another potato without it. AND it is a SECRET recipe. A recipe guarded for decades. It IS that good.

We enjoyed the fried green tomatoes. The Cyclone makes their own "mayo" Not sure how but it was delicious! They use it as a dip and it... More
