I took my son who had just graduated from Navy bootcamp here. We had the best time!! Our sever, Popcorn, was the best! He was awesome!! The food was really good (although a little pricey)! Popcorn was "rude" as they all are, but a great server!! He even played "in the navy" & dedicated it to him! TOO COOL! Great... More

This was such a wonderful experience. We have eaten here before and have liked it. I have two daughters, 13 and 15. It's entertaining and the food is good. This visit we tried breakfast. It was excellent. The value was great and service very good. The parking lot is not owned by Ed's so you do have to pay to... More

We were in Chicago with a group of families for a workshop. This place is a fun evening out with kids. Do not expect a gourmet experience but it is not bad.

I have been here before and returned with family for our most recent visit to the Chicago area. We were seated almost right away for dinner. Our server Chevy was excellent. Providing lots entertainment and photobombing pictures. He was sassy enough to be funny, but not annoying. The entire family enjoyed the experience and atmosphere. The food is slightly overpriced...

This is one of our favorite places to eat in the city! This little themed burger joint is always a ton of fun! The waiters dance on the counter, and are hilariously rude! If you like fine, stuffy restaurants this is not the place for you. However, if you enjoy a good laugh, amazing milk shakes, and an all around... More

If you have kids over the age of 10 or guests coming in from out of town, this is a place to come and have fun. The music is mostly from the 50's. The wait staff is dressed for fun and will interact with your table. They seem to be on stage during most of your visit. We went on... More

Waiters are intentionally rude, but not uncomfortably so. They're quite funny, usually. I'd love to work here. Wish more companies would have 'Ed Debevic Fridays' so that our country would calm down!

This was my second trip to Ed's. This place is great fun if you gave a group or young kids. I take my daughter and her ten year old friends here and they really get a kick out of it. The food is average. You won't go here for great food but rather for the fun and unique experience.

If your teens are willing to come out of their shells they'll have a good time. If you have a birthday in the group be sure to have your waiter sing. The deserts were huge, cookie sandwich could be shared by four! Their ice cream is delicious and while the mini sundae sounds small it's the perfect one person serving... More
