The pancakes here are good but extremely overpriced. I don't like the coffee, but I tend to prefer it to be strong. Although I've been here several times, I'm not likely to return because the food is just ok but the prices are too high.

Trumbull is lucky to have Chips move into town and you can tell by how busy it is. The food is great here. They serve many but move the crowds. You may still have to wait. A little pricey but the food is always very good. Service is also great. They have many great specials and will handle customer orders... More

At any Chips I've been at the food and service is great. Most important is that what you get is consistent and the question of whether it is a good place is always "yes". No one wants to test out a new or different business.

For years I have seen the billboard but we never stopped until yesterday. The billboard stated Best Pancakes in Connecticut. I have to agree. My husband had the Pigs in a Blanket. I had the corn and crabcake Benedict with Cranberry Orange Pancakes. My daughter had a short stack of chocolate chip cakes. My son had a bacon cheeseburger with... More

To be fair, I did not have their pancakes which they are "known" for. Menu was large. I chose an omelete which was run of the mill. I selected fruit over potatoes and it was not very fresh. Went during lunch time and it was not very busy. Loud, open space and I could hear the conversation for the table... More

We had never been to Chips before and were in the area, so we decided to give it a try. I had my two children with me. We all decided to have pancakes. There are many different kinds of pancakes to choose from. I had Cinnabon pancakes and my son had S'mores pancakes. My daughter had kids' menu pancakes with... More

Met five ladies for lunch and we had lots of great choices from sandwiches, to salads and even eggs. Wait stAff very accommodating and we were able to visit and enjoy time with each other without being made to feel rushed.

Chip's is one of my family's favorite places to eat out. Generous portions, attentive service and great menu are why. And yes we can order breakfast any time of day. Our out of town guests always remember it for the delicious pancakes.
