Great chili

Had lunch there last week and the Chili was great. We have been going there for years when we visit our family in Chicago and the food seems to only get better. We can always count on a great bowl of chili and their hamburgers and fries are top notch too

This is a weird restaurant. The booth has a velvet backing. There are stuffed animals hanging from the ceiling that are for sale. The food is good but there was one server for 14 tables! The slowest service I've had in years. I had to go to the counter to order my dessert and ask the dessert girl to get... More

Have loved Lindy's (Gerties) for as far back as I can remember. The Sweet Sixteen sundae is absolutely awesome. Definitely recommend it.

One of my favorite places to go to for a burger and chili. I also love their chili mac, that's chili with macaroni.

I've been going to this Lindy's/Gertie's since I was a little kid. We would come here after school for a quick lunch and dessert. The food has always been good, no complaints there. The staff service is decent... nothing really to complain about, but I do want to mention the condition of the restaurant itself. It's been the same set... More

We love the ice cream and chili from here. Best place for sundaes on the south side! Their prices are fair and get your orders to you pretty quickly. It just has to be said, we were there this past week, and I love the old fashioned feel to it- but this place is in serious need of some remodeling,... More

They are great at their specialties, chili and ice cream. They make real chocolate malts that are scrumptious!

My family and I have eaten at Lindy's & Gerties for over 10 years. The chili covered cavatell with garlic bread is delicious. I get that every time I go there for lunch. My Husband loves the chili in the bowl. The ice cream we get is 100% delicious every time. My favorite is the hot fudge sundae! Two giant... More
