Fish was VERY greasy. We picked it all off. The fish was not fresh but had a frozen taste. Fries were good, but would not order again.

This place is a nice place to stop in for a consistent meal. Although, the food is just a little better than average at least it is good for a quick stop when you do not know where to go.

Chelo has a great variety of offerings. From soups, salads, sandwiches, din er and desserts. There is something for everyone. However, Friday is the best if you like Fish and Chips, or Clamcakes and Chowder ...the only night they offer these items are on Friday. Clamcakes are big, freshly made and served piping hot. We recommend this stop anytime, but... More

Chelos is one of the local chain restaurants with a large menu of very good dishes. They have many daily specials, the half price apps mon-thurs is one of my favs. This Chelos has been remodeled recently which gives it a more modern and relaxed atmosphere. If you haven't been yet you should check it out!

This will be short and sweet...burgers are among the best we've ever had. Great server, Miranda, and family-friendly atmosphere to watch Sunday football. Oh... and 1/2 price apps all day Sunday.

We had a great lunch here and the service was very attentive. We had a toddler and a newborn and the hostess helped us secure the car seat to a high chair which was something I'd never seen before. We sampled a variety of things- clam chowder, tuna melt, chicken veggie wrap, hamburger, philly cheese steak and everyone enjoyed what... More

I have been here twice and both times got the RB Stack it was great my friends got sandwiches as well and they were pleased as well. For $10 you can't go wrong and you have your choice of sides!

We were greeted upon entering the restaurant by the hostess. She quickly sat us down, but it took awhile for the waitress to come over. (Keep in mind this is the July 4th) Once our waitress Elyssa came it was a pleasant experience. ( I highly recommend her) She was very knowledgeable of the menu. I enjoyed the hot mozzarella...

Description
Our restaurant in Cranston, RI, is our latest location to have received an extreme makeover! We are thrilled to announce that this location now boasts an expansive, state-of-the-art, full-service bar with seating for 34 and 12 beers on tap. Walking through the front door, you'll find our half circle booths and high top tables flanking the new bar area. But we didn't stop there; Cranston's exquisite function room can accommodate your private event of up to 40 guests. Live music every Saturday night from 8:30- close and Trivia Night every Monday at 7pm.
