Last night my wife Gloria and I went to Glunz for dinner, hoping to get some good, authentic German food. It was an utter failure, a disaster. Our first clue should have been that upon entering the restaurant at around 6:00 p.m., the first thing we noticed was the lack of customers. No one was there! Not one diner, not... More

After being disappointed by another restaurant my family decided to go to Glunz because we had been a few times and each time was good food. Again we were not disappointed! The asparagus soup is very tasty to start out with along with their yogurt dressing for the salad. The weinerschnitzel was excellent as always along with their cheese spaetzel.... More

The decor and layout were great similar to authentic German beer house restaurants. Positives include excellent beer and good food and service and a charming entertaining two man music group. The downside was lack of clientele and appearances of owner neglect of details. Outdated signage from October fest and Christmas. The smell of deodorizer in the air. Water glasses less... More

For dinner, I had the raved about beef stroganoff.... More

This place is a gem - it's not in downtown Chicago, so might require a subway trip but it's so worth it. Fabulous beer selections and a terrific, very authentic menu featuring such greats as bread dumplings with roast pork in a caraway jus and sauerkraut. There's a lovely beer garden on a shady side street. Many, many times better... More

Is this the place with the viking helmets? If so great time! Decor was kind of sparse, but it was a fun place.

This place is wonderful. A group of us went here during the week and we had an excellent time. The service is friendly, the food was outstanding and the best choice of beers in the city. You have to tell all your friends. Bring a group and order a boot. I will be heading back there again and again. Next... More
