Chat 'n' Chew
Posted by Anonymous on 06/13/2010
Was excited to read the review, figured the menu sounded reasonable, so we took off for Union Square today. The whole experience was kind of blah. we ordered the first item (eggs any style) and huevos rancheros. For the first item, charged us a buck extra each for a few pieces of onions and peppers (which we hadn't known about), brought half a piece of toast and then charged extra for another couple slices. The huevos rancheros sound much better than they actually were. Our waitress was pleasant enough, but it took a while to get a hold of her to place an order or even get the check. Basically, not bad, but there are better options.

Chat n' Chew is a place that I've always liked a lot. They have very good food here and the place is cool. You step down a few steps from street level and step into the sort of Hippi-ish vibed out place. Sort of reminds me of my uncle's basement in the 1970's. I've never been disappointed in their food and they have good bacon! Service is good, but they get to busy for quality take out or delivery. It's a sit down place to take in and enjoy. Recommended!

I went there with my boyfriend and the prices were a little high for the dishes. The buffalo shrimp tasted as though they just threw hot sauce on it, my fish tacos while tasty were soggy from all of the marinara sauce they put in it and his turkey burger tasted garlicy and lemony. It took forever for them to take our orders and for the food to come. I would not go here again

I love this place. The atmosphere is so fun and funky and the food is consistently good...mac 'n' cheese is famously amazing (and big). Service is always friendly. Definitely one of my favorites in the Union Square area!

We waited two hours for a BLT and a salad be delivered. (kept assuring us it was on the way!) When it arrived. the sandwich was cold and wet. Eck.

We ordered a couple of sandwiches from this place the other night, and it took 80 minutes for them to be delivered. Note that this was for sandwiches -- an order that only needs to be assembled, not cooked. And we live less than 5 short blocks away. When I called the restaurant after the one hour mark, the people I talked to were anything but apologetic. They couldn't confirm that our order had gone out or when, just that the delivery guy was out, and hadn't returned yet, thus our order must still "be on its way." Their exasperated tone said they couldn't care less, leading me to believe this happens a lot and that they're tired of taking calls like this. The lettuce on the sandwiches was beyond wilted, it was COOKED (I guess the turkey on the sandwich goes on hot), and for the record the turkey wasn't well trimmed at all -- I got a huge piece of rubbery skin, and too much unchewable gristle. The fries were also wilted, barely warm. Note the many other reviews here that had similar (or even worse!) delivery experiences. I threw out the delivery menu, as I would never order from them again. You shouldn't either. 80 minutes for a sandwich? Fuhgettaboutit. ORDER ELSEWHERE.

I had the Leftover Thanksgiving sandwich and it was perfect! Gravy, stuffing and cranberry sauce! Delicious! Good value for that part of town too.
