We love where we live, with numerous dining options located nearby at Brooklyn Basin as well as Jack London Square. Chop Bar is one of those dining venues serving breakfast, lunch and dinner. Using the finest ingredients found in the Bay Area, they make affordable and nourishing food designed to be enjoyed by everyone.
So what is a Chop Bar? Chris and Lev, co-owners of Chop Shop, describe it perfectly:
A chop bar, in West African parlance, is a roadside bar/restaurant that also serves as a gathering place for the community. One can go there for a meal, coffee in the morning or drinks at night. It is a place where neighbors can meet, share information and ideas, and connect with each other.
When we were considering opening this restaurant, we felt that a chop bar was exactly what this neighborhood needed!
Serving up breakfast, lunch and dinner, the food doesn’t disappoint. Here are a few Yelp reviews in case you need a bit of prompting.
I love the vibes and atmosphere here! I've been building a list of places to go for my me time when I want a good drink and good food and this has definitely made the list. I ordered the cocktail of the week which was the Eclipse Lunar and the chicken torta. Everything was amazing! Such a perfect pair! Before leaving I ordered a glass of bubbly which was perfect and crisp and delicious! On top of all of that service was great, my food came quickly even though they were busy, and everything was fresh! I'll be back! – Arielle B.
I must give Chop Bar five stars because why?!?!? There's no reason not to. The food is great! The drinks are great! Cute little outside seating!!! – Cheryl T.
I danced! The food was so good… I danced. I Got the Chop salad and let me tell you the tomatoes were awesome, the chicken was perfect and the salad dressing was so good! The Fries were perfectly cooked… ummm what kind of Ketchup was that? That was good too. My daughter had the Chop Burger and fries and let me tell you that there was 20 minutes of silence!… 20 burgers please!… also she never eats a whole burger. Thank you for the wonderful food! – Trina P.
