My son and I ate here after debating on it for several months. Dated look but possibly part of its decor or charm. Burgers were very good. Son is picky and he even approved. We will return!

We had burger and grilled chicken salad with order of fries. Fries seemed a little limp but were edible. Burger was good with a nice poppy seed bun. Had the green chili topping but it was just ok. Large selection of beers. Loud and busy so everyone seemed to be enjoying their food.

They don't know what small portions are. Everything is great. A huge variety of beers. Service is quick and a very laid back atmosphere. Truly an amazing burger. It will fill the big guys up. They don't have a child's burger, but offer 4 different kids meals options. They make THE BEST ice cream shakes!

Chester's has surpassed Five Guys as my favorite burger joint. We always get great service and have never had a problem with our food. While I do not love their fries I will say their onion rings make a great combination with the bacon cheeseburger!

I've been coming to CHESTERS for years...and they never disappoint. Today's bacon cheeseburger was fabulous...fresh, fresh veggies, CRISP bacon, hot, delicious hamburger patty and, of course, the poppyseed bun! Delicious, fresh cut fries, free refills...this place is the BOMB! Sorry about the photo...it was just too good!

I grew up eating at Chester's, so it's slightly nostalgic for me, but it is literally the best burger and fries I've ever had. Every trip home includes more than one visit. From the poppy seed bun to the fresh cut fries, it never disappoints. If you're in the area, you should definitely check them out!

We have been eating at Chester's for more than 23 years, most of the time at this location. While our company may change their orders, ours remains constant. This time however, the manager was so rude that, when we sent our onion rings back to be cooked longer, she berated an employee right in front of us making us want... More

I think the allure to chesters is the funky interior and the relaxed sports bar atmosphere. The food is average. I'm about to criticize a chili dog, I ordered it with cheese and was abhorred that it came with a rectangle of kraft-barf! For me it was a basic fried food menu and not my preferred cuisine. I did enjoy... More

The bacon cheeseburger had no flavor. I had to add salt twice, then again with every bite. Even adding bacon did not help. The burger was big but cost $7.00. Another $2.50 for greasy onion rings. I ordered a german beer, learned that with 6 display cases of beer, only two brands were german. I wanted a sweet wheat beer... More
