The food here is okay, nothing great for the price. Seems like a local hangout, with celebrations going on and some police eating there. One of the cops I spoke with said it was the best place in Greektown. I went here with a party of 5 and the service was terrible. Took for ever to get the food, forgot orders, finally just left.
Very good food, huge portions, great desserts, vegetarian options. Friendly service, fun atmoshpere, good location. Sometimes there is a long wait, and they don't take reservations. You can wait at the bar, but that is also often crowded. Some of the tables are way too small for a guy over 6 feet, but they are accomadating. Only thing I would avoid are the mixed drinks - they seem to always botch them.
Bad, bad, bad. This food is just not good. Even if you like their style of pizza I don't know how you could enjoy this place. Maybe I'm missing something.
The food here is very good, surprisngly. There are always terribly long waits, I recommend going during the week if possible, or asking to sit at the bar. Huge portions, so share to leave room for dessert. Possible celebrity spottings. I've seen a few there!
Not terrible, but not worth mentioning. Friendly staff, huge menu, vegetarian options are slim but filling. Slightly overpriced, portions aren't oversized like you might expect.
The atmoshpere here is hilarious. Sometimes it's typical busy restaurant , with a good mix of people, but other times there's sleww of shady fellas with their "hired" pals. Maybe that was an isolated instance? Anyway, I've been here a dozen times and even though I'm a vegetarian, the food is pretty good. Great desserts and good service.
Being from the east cast, where good bagels are abundant, I was surprised at how well Chicago could mess up a simple thing like a bagel. A bagel should be boiled, with a thin, slightly firm and shiny outside, and a soft chewy inside. Einstein's comes pretty close. I recommend the pumpernickel
Chicago does a lot of things well, but pizza restaurants just isn't one of 'em. Nasty thick crust "pizza", bad atmosphere, friendly staff - but who cares when they serve this kinda junk?
A good location, restrooms (always a plus when out shopping) with a good magazine section. The thing I look for in a bookstore is a great selection, they've got that down pretty well, a comfy place to sit and read all their magazines then split (they don't have that), bathrooms (already mentioned) and a helpful staff (lacking, to say the least).
This is THE spot to go to after hours, well, what goes for after hours, in Lincoln Park. Crowded with saucy yuppies and staffed by salty minimum wagers, the food is greasy and tasty. They've got a veggie burger too.
