Chomp is a fun place for the whole family to eat, whether you live in Solvang or are traveling through the area. They’ve applied a fresh and modern twist to the classic American diner.
They serve burgers, shakes, fries and other traditional diner fare, but this is definitely not a 1950’s greasy diner. The decor and menu are clearly from the present day.
Chomp is open for lunch and dinner from 11:30am until 8pm. They’ve got seating indoors in the dining room and outside on a patio. They can accommodate individuals and big groups of tourists. The afternoon that I visited there was a mix of locals, US travelers and international visitors.
The menu has the type of comfort food I expect from a diner, but better. They locally source many of the ingredients, including bread, cheese, produce, beverages. The food is simple, but they’ve put thought into little extras that make it special.
The mac n’ cheese is made with three types of cheese. The grilled cheese sandwich is also made with three different kinds of cheese and is served on thick sliced texas toast. They’ve got regular fries and sweet potato fries. This is a restaurant where picky eaters who like it simple and people who have gourmet taste buds can all be happy.
Lunch was great and filling. I really wanted to try one of their famous milkshakes, but will have to come back again for that.
