Reviews of Chris's Cafe

5 such a history by Kim Dudte - 08/24/2014

I am doubtful any of you will remember me. I sat on Mickey Scadova's lap as a child and knew his sister marsha and his mom Connie. I have been away from Mansfield for 25 years and I can remember my mom Mary Dudte and my dad Paul Dudte taking me to your restaurant when I was a child when it wad downtown before you moved out to park west.. I always got the "hot cabbage salad" as my mom called it and it makes me happy when I think about it. My parents have passed away 15 years ago and now all I have left are memories. I would really like to make the salad if you are generous enough to share as there is no reason for me to come home anymore. My maiden name is Kim Dudte and I graduated from Ohio State and now live in Indiana. I can be reached at (my fiance). The goulash was always wonderful as well. Thank you for the memories

3 Not what it appears to be on the website by Polly - 07/25/2012

What you see on their website and what you see at their restaurant and totally different. The fried pork chops are great, the steak is tasteless and tough, the hot slaw is strange with an overpowering oder but the bread is great and so is the service. The people who work there are very nice and it looks like a good place to drink at the bar. Not so much for dinner.

5 SATISFIED CUSTOMER by fredsaid - 12/30/2010

Love this place! Food was AWESOME!

3 Great ethnic food by Sandy - 05/20/2010

Chris's is a great place to meet friends and enjoy the bar and outside patio, or just stay inside for a great meal and drinks. Their goulash is very good and the prices are reasonable. I would recommend for a change of pace.

5 Looking for Beef Goulash...look no further by MCSpeelman - 03/27/2009

We love this restaurant! The Goulash and Hot Salad is what has made this a Mansfield local must stop.
