I had the green chili burger, it was delicious. To top it off the fries were hand cut and spot on. Also enjoyed a bite of French toast. Service was great.

King chef has truly the best breakfast burritos and green chili in town. I have yet to find better. Sure, the chain restaurants are always a safe bet, but King Chef is unique and delicious. There's always a wait because of how good it is!

I agree with ordering it from their website. Our waitress told us locally you can find it at Trader Joe's and Whole Foods, but our California stores don't carry them. We also loved the green chili sauce!
