Sal's Place formerly Chomps is the best of the best. The food is extremely good with a fantastic salad bar and delicious soups. Everything on the menu is worth trying. The service is exceptional and friendly. Sal and staff bend over backwards to please. Give it a try. It is 1000 times better than Chomps every was.

Hostess was great and the owner is cool butThat's as far as the positive extends. Our server described the pasta pomodoro as pasta "with a white sauce. I think Alfredo sauce". Speechless. I opted for the other pasta side on the menu which actually did state pasta alfredo! Our server clearly didn't know how to use a tray because she... More

As both Chomps and Sal's Place have eaten here many times. There are times when the service is lacking, but for a local sports bar that is pretty normal. The food is good (best chef salad in town, unexpected at a sports bar), great fresh homemade chips and generous happy hour (2-7) every day. Not sure about those who say... More

Was there late-ish on a Monday night, it was not exactly hopping. But the wait staff was friendly and attentive, and the DJ hosting Karaoke night, Yurgi Bear was enthusiastic and had a variety of music choices (and has Neil Diamond pegged perfectly). Drinks were served promptly. Had a great time. Happy to try again. Did not order food, so... More

I decided to give it one more try.For the second time my salad came out after the entree was served.Again the salad was the best part of the meal.The sirloin overcooked and not seasoned very well. The Black beans and rice had a hint of vinegar and the rice was not fully cooked.I think they should just admit they are... More

Met a buddy of mine for lunch who works in the area and it is his favorite place to get wings in Gainesville. I don't recall the rest of the menu but the wings were good so if you are in the mood for a good batch of wings Chomps works!

This has a very average sports pub feel. The menu is large, and maybe that is a problem. I ordered a basic cheese burger which is a signature item (Chomp's Burger). It was extremely bland, as in not seasoned at all. I like a minimalist approach if it highlights good meat, but this tasted like the inside of a crowded... More

I haven't been here in years, tried it yesterday and was mildly surprised. They had redone the whole inside, tv's everywhere, wood flooring and spacious pool table/bar area. I had read several reviews and most were not good so I was a bit concerned. It was good. I had the buffalo chicken salad and was very tasty, not spicy at... More

Although this place has received mixed reviews, we took a chance. It was worthwhile. We were there for lunch before a UF football game. Definitely lacking in ambiance, we came to eat, not to judge. The chicken salad and chili cheese dog were very good. That could not be said for the shaved steak sandwich, too much bread, not enough... More
