My husband and I both got a burger and a drink. He got the jalapeño burger and I got the all grass burger. They have great fries. It was very good and on the cheep side!

Description
"Why Chester's?" We get asked this often and the answer is quite simple...it's a friendly, comfortable and traditional name. This is a direct reflection of how we want you to feel in our restaurant. The other connection we made is a tribute to the city, Ro-Chester's! We love Rochester and we're glad to be a part of this community. Comfort food, steaks, fresh fish, pasta you name it we have it!
