Wonderfully insulting....

Took three grandsons to Eds after going to the Sears Tower. The food was good land the waiters were their wonderful, funny, insulting selves. The kids had a great time. The counter dance was exceptionally funny.

We recently took an overnight trip to the city and stayed at the Hyatt based on friends' recommendation. It was a beautiful hotel conveniently located to the Miracle Mile, which is where we wanted to spend time. The staff was kind and helpful with getting a cab, direcrions, etc. We had an issue with the room, but didn't do anything... More

I'm a travel agent and I live in the Chicago suburban area. I've been to Ed's before, but this time was horrible. The atmosphere is fun and the rude service theme is pretty cool. The dancing staff on the bar is pretty cute as well. It took 50 minutes to get my meal (ruben with sweet potato fries and a... More

I ate at Ed Debevics as part of a convention group, however, while the restaurant I think did their best to handle our size group, I think we were a little too much for them. I know the premise of the restaurant is to be rude because I've been there before, but in the past it was in fun. This... More

The food is good, but that's not why you visit this 50s diner! The sass and snark from the servers and the atmosphere is so much fun! We visited on a Sunday afternoon, and the server at the table next to us was giving her patrons a hard time. My daughter's eyes got big and I could tell she wondered... More

The food wasn't great but atmosphere was a "hoot". If your taking kids and teens they will never notice they will love the rude waiters and waitresses! It will be an experience they will never forget.

Don't go to Ed's for the food. This was my first time back in 20 years....I loved this place as a kid. And my kids loved it today. The servers are loud and obnoxious, by design. My four year old nephew said, "this is the best place I've ever been in my life!" It was definitely a fun lunch Dip... More

We have loved Debevics theatre & attitude for years. It has been a great fun with tourists but our visit here for the first time in 2 years ended with disgusting trips to the bathrooms. Both were dirty and messy, but what was worse was the embedded grime, filthy floor drains & long-standing grime. Obviously no one cares about cleanliness.....so... More
