Typical family run diner. NOT open 24 hrs anymore (ate there last week as of march 2011) but still the usual diner hours.

Great choice if you're in the Midway Airport area and need a place besides the usual boring food chains.

Noticed a lot of regulars in there because the waitstaff really seemed to know the customers' names, jobs, families, etc. and how they liked to drink their coffee and have their eggs!!!

I was seated near a limo driver of 20 yrs and could overhear him chattin' it up with other regulars and waitstaff and I recall thinking how nice that was for a change, rather than being surrounded by everyone with their noses in their i-phones and blackberries.

Yes, the place is dated but it also seems to have that "throw-back" feel to an era gone by; a comfy nostalgia. I bet A LOT of people have been in and out of this place to and from the Midway airport.

Inexpensive food, satisfying portions, GREAT people watching.

If the walls could talk in that place...

As far as Diners are concerned, this one is a "must-see" when on a trip either in or out of Midway airport.

Its NOT classy, nor is it pretty but it IS sure a fun way to either start or end a trip. For some reason (maybe psychological)

I went to this place on a Saturday evening. I ordered the BLT to go. For under $7, it comes with cole slaw, fries (more than one can eat) a pickle, and soup. I did not want the soup, so he asked if I would like a soda in place of the soup. I have never had a place do that before. The service was crazy fast and the staff was so nice. In the short time I was there, I got the sense that it is a place that regulars frequent as the two parties that walked in seemed to have a fun, friendly rapport with the host. Can't say enough good about this place !

I considered giving this place a 2(the food is pretty decent), but the staff alone is the reason I give them a 1.

The food is tasty, the prices are pretty reasonable. BUT, the staff is what made me unhappy. They do not seem to value the customer at all. Everyone seems generally unhappy, which spills into their service(which is painstakingly slow). So, if you want some decent food, go...If you want to endure that sort of thing.

PROS: Decent food at reasonable prices
CONS: Bad Service

If your looking for good, reasonable and a variety of foods this is a good place to check out. Open 24 hours, friendly staff and good specials that come with the whole nine yards, soup, salad, entre, coffee and awesome deserts for well under 10 bucks! Its been here for years and there is a reason for it, same owners the whole time also.

PROS: Good Food, Good Prices, Nice People
CONS:

If you're looking for a great place to eat, 24 hours a day near Midway airport, Brandy's is the perfect place for you.

This Greek owned diner location offers all types of dishes at very reasonable prices. It is not fancy and is decorated for all the seasons. My favorite meal there is breakfast. Their skillets are really big and better than any other chain breakfast diners.

The only meal I do not recommend is the fried shrimp basket; it's good, but not as good as some oter restaurant

The staff at this location is very nice and treat you like family.

PROS: Great food
CONS: fried shrimp basket
