After a long ortho appointment with my daughter, we decided to stop at our regular weekend day place, Hackneys on Harms for a small lunch.

The waitress was awesome, but we could not figure out why the hamburger was dry and sliced in half.

If you like greasy food, this is the place for you. If you like to eat healthy, this is not the place for you. The biggest drawback is they still allow smoking in the bar area which is disgusting. The bar area is open to the resturant so I am not sure how they think the smoke is not going to get into the other areas of the place.

After we saw Hackney's On Harm on the Food Channel, we decided to try it on our next visit.

If you are looking for flash and glitz, keep driving, Chicago is full of over priced places.

If you are looking for absolutly fantastic burgers, steaks, onion loafs, etc., then take the time to print out a map and take the time to find them. We have been back many times over the years, and always look forward to our next visit before even leaving the diner table. The prime rib is worth the drive all by itself!

Even if you are not a big fan of Key Lime Pie, you've got to try theirs which is fantastic!

Everyone from Grandma and Grandpa to the smallest grandkids are welcome. Portions tend to be on the large size so if you leave hungry, don't blame them. Service is excellent, even on a Saturday night but expect to wait.

Pros: Melt In Your Mouth Burgers

Cons: Too Far Away to Visit Weekly

Hackney's on Harms features the usual excellent burgers on rye and onion "loaves," but the real draw of this particular location is the big, sprawling patio. It's a very old-fashioned feel, but I happen to like it. I have really fond memories of coming here with my grandparents when I was little, and I still like to come here with my parents and cousins on a beautiful summer day. A great place to take kids--they'll like the food, and there's a little outdoor playhouse so they won't get too bored waiting for it.

Hackneys is a great place for a good old-fashioned burger. They have pretty good onion rings and the portion is huge. The burgers are flavorful and I only add some ketchup and mustard. The service really isn't the greatest. It's usally an older crowd but it's definitely worth trying!

This particular Hackneys has a great old-fashioned bar atmosphere. The burgers, served on the traditional dark rye, are the best in the area. The onion strings are also to die for. I absolutely love this place. It's a Chicago-area institution that's been here forever for good reason.

PROS: Great food and drink
CONS: You might miss it driving by on Harms so pay attention

This is not the restaurant of years ago. The hamburger is plain and dull. If this place rates at 10 for food, then McDonald's has a rating off the scale.

I've only eaten there once, but the burgers are the best I've ever had. I have a fond memory of eating there with my grandma who told me that this was her large families special spot to eat when they got to dine out. She also told me that the food is just as good as it was when she was younger. I love it and am going to go back with grandma soon!

Hackney's has been in business for over 60 years and has really perfected their hamburgers. Everyone tries to copy them. They serve a mound of fried onions that you have to try if you go there.
They actually have 4 restaurants: 2 in Glenview, 1 in Lake Zurich and 1 in Wheeling.

I recommend everone try their Buffalo burger. It's somewhat healthier--buffalo meat is much leaner than beef. This burger offers great taste.

Hackney's has been known amongst our family and friends for it's great food for decades. Their cheeseburger on rye has steadfastly remained at the top of Chicago-area cuisine up there on the top of the list near Uno's Pizza. Their blocks of onion rings are a unique complement that I have yet to find anywhere else. If you're ever near the North Chicago area and haven't tried them - you gotta stop by and check them out.

First, you got the wrong Hackney's. The one on Harms is barely a "kissin' cousin" of the one on Lake for food and ambience. The Harm's Hackney's indoor seating is like a run-down circa 1965 golf course pro-shop. The out-door seating you describe does not meet the standards of my last backyard. As to the food, the burger's are WAY over-rated and esoteric in their variety and preparation (a bleu cheese burger, give me a break). And that famous onion loaf...picture it served on end still in a brick shape and oozing cooking oil onto the paper towel underneath. Ymmm!

Pros: in town, quaint (old), good bar - need it

Cons: parking congestion, LONG WAIT, food average, pricy

While the burgers are huge, they aren't the best. Some spices would help. The onion rings keep you coming back to Hackney's.

Nothing beats lounging an afternoon or evening away on the Hackney's patio with an onion loaf, and a few drinks. It's like spending the day in a full service backyard. Try the potatoe skins with applesauce--yum!

hackney's is a classic Chicago restaurant. The menu pretty much stays the same and people know what to expect when they go to Hackney's. It's a great place to go with kids, friends and family.

It's great that us City folk don't have to make a field trip to the "land beyond Ohare" anymore for a great Hackney Burger. The recent addition of a South Loop / Printers Row location puts Hackney's right in the neighborhood.

I was a small child the first time I ate at Hackney's. This was my parents favorite Chicagoland restuarant for burgers & fried onions and now it is mine. Their Bison Burger is the Best!

I've been enjoying Hackney's for over 30 years.
Their biggest plus, CONSISTENCY! I now have to
drive 25 miles 1 way to enjoy their fabulous burger
and it is so worth the ride. Never disappointed in
food, service or cost and their hot fudge sundae is to die for, better than most ice cream parlors!

I've been going to a Hackney's restaurant since 1955. The quality has been consistent (even though the prices haven't obviously) at every Hackney's I've been to (all but in Palos).

The hamburger with grilled onions on dark rye (The Hackneyburger) is only enhanced further by an order of fried onions in a loaf.

I love Hackney's (both restauants)
My fav. is the onion "Loafs" yes these are brick size and compact. Hamburgers to die for. If I have to say anything bad about this place I guest it might be the ambience it could use a little something more and it is kinda dark. Great place to have a family get together!

Little changes about this place, and that's what its fans prefer. Though several other sandwiches are tried-and-true tasty possibilities, it would be a mistake to forego the half-pound Hackneyburger, a marvel of juicy, quality beef topped…
