Who knew? I never go to the Outlet Mall so had no idea this wonderful place is here. I needed to kill time in the morning so had BF here. After looking @ the reviews..one of which said they make Monte Cristo sandwiches the 'right way' I was hooked into going. They do make an awesome MC....in fact so loaded... More

I've eaten here several times, and have never been disappointed. The turkey dinner was moist, flavorful and filling. The beef dip was also tasty. Service is fairly quick and the prices are very good. The restaurant has never been busy when I've been there.

We met friends for lunch and were well tended to. Lots of coffee refills, attention to our needs but not intrusive. Meals were well prepared and tasty.

Lived in the area for almost 10 years and put up with countless mediocre diner meals before we finally found the Curious Chef. Delicious, home-made food with cheerful service and good prices. Absolutely a cut above the rest.

Freshly roasted turkey, ham, etc on site. My favorite is Eggs Benedict. They make the Hollandaise sauce fresh for each order. Wonderful moist turkey dinners. Cafe setting in Discount Mall. Relaxed setting. Great wait people. Very reasonable.

Everything is cooked fresh there i.e. Turkeys, hams, beef. Nothing microwaved precooked. Had prime rib Saturday night. Best flavor, cooked like we like, tender flavorful. Senior turkey dinner is fresh, moist and excellent flavor. I love the eggs Benedict. The hollandaise sauce is made fresh for each order and best ever. Old fashioned home cooked excellent meals. Great menu. Nothing... More

Had the patty melt and chili it was awesome. My waiter made great suggestions and the suggestion did not disappoint. Also a really nice touch having the old school ice cream bar near the register. Thank you

From the moment we were greeted by our waitress Jasmine we knew this had the potential for a great breakfast. Traditional eggs benadict and country huevos Rancheros hit the spot. Can't wait to come back for lunch and then maybe dinner. Definitely a top spot in Burlington

Stopped by for breakfast and was pleased to see this spot redone with comfortable booths that allow much more absorbtion of sound, more privacy and adds atmosphere. I normally come here more for the dependably good food and service alone; sure makes it easier to come more often. Try the steel cut oatmeal; they do it just right. The only... More
