What a lunch.

Classic dark Chicago spot. Great wood work and lighting. First time visit and we were promptly greeted and seated. Reminds me a little of another area spot but this stands out on its own. Even has a dedicated gluten free menu. Four of us ordered the same appy; the turkey black bean chili. In a... read more

My husband & I were visiting Chicago, not sure where to grab brunch, thankfully we found this fantastic place! The nachos are sublime, they are NOT typical in ANY way, loaded and tasty, I carve them weekly. The staff was friendly and the food over the top. Eggs, omelettes, french toast, fantastic sushi, bloody mary's, soft tacos. Go there!

The place was packed to the gills. Great music and all sorts of clients, it was a fun restaurant! I was very impressed with the bar staff- they were on the ball, funny, and made our visit very comfortable. The food was outstanding. Get the chicken nachos- OMG we talked about them for days. Fab. I disliked that there were... More

Paid for the buffet and it was $35.00. Was not worth it. Wasn't pleased and the food didn't taste very good. The sushi was sitting out too long.

We visited the Hub 51, recommended by a friend. Great burgers, atmosphere, and drinks, wines, beers. Our food was excellent and so was the service. Will repeat when in the area.

Hub51 is in downtown Chicago near Michigan Ave. The menu is wide and unusual. The food was really good as was the service. This is a vibey place with a younger clientele and a lively bar. It is definitely worth a visit if you want a more casual eating experience.

With a variety of menu items and a neat bar menu, Hub 51 is a great place to eat or drink. I enjoyed my burger greatly. However, a word of warning: it's in a neighborhood (River North) that gets extremely loud and obnoxious after about 9 PM, so you'd be best to avoid it.

I was pleased that they have a number of options when it comes to wines and not just Californian! Has the steak tacos, amazing, really good garnish of guacamole and beans, etc. good... More
