My husband went to Northwestern in the late 60's. One of his favorite restaurants was Hackney's. We decided to give it a try on our latest visit to Chicago. It did not disappoint either of us. The food was delicious, the service was great and the ambiance was fun and energetic. What a wonderful walk down memory lane!

So, I've been to the Hackney's in Glenview several times. But the food was nothing like this place. I ordered fish & chips for $14.95. The breading was soggy, the fish (Cod) was bland. No salt, no pepper, nothing. Exactly what it tasted like, nothing. Had a side of cole slaw. Supposedly their own recipe. Well, you could easily steal... More

This place is known for their burgers which are pretty good. I had the Hackney burger on a pretzel roll and it was pretty decent. The atmosphere was like a typical bar - lots of TVs, people, beer glasses and food. I would return if I was in the area.

Came here three times - once for drinks and twice for dinner - during 10 days in Chicago. Great bar with good selection of beers, stouts and wine. Daily specials go beyond burgers. Wednesday's pork chop in cider and dijon mustard sauce with fennel, potato, sweet potato and broccoli was the closest to a good home-cooked meal I've had in... More

This is a sure thing. The evening hours between 6pm and 7:30pm have a family feel. Weekends are great for meeting friend's at Hackney's bar side of the restaurant or to sit down for a meal with friends. I have visited with five friends and enjoyed good value. My favorite is the Hackney Burger. They know how to make coleslaw... More

The staff was super. The food was good. The atmosphere was fun. The burger was good, but a little undercooked. The house salad and fries were spot on. If you are looking for a good, inexpensive burger, go here. It served its purpose.

This was our first visit here and we loved it! The atmosphere is nice but somewhat cramped. Servers were very good and very friendly. My husband had the Kobe burger which he said was one of the best he has ever had. I had the fish and chips and the fish was very tender and flaky. It was not quite... More

Staying in Downtown / The Loop

Neighborhood Profile
Downtown / The Loop
Often visitors' first stop in Chicago, The Loop is a good starting point to sample the city's energy and flavor. This central business district boasts Michelin-rated restaurants, upscale hotels, premier shopping, and enough arresting architecture to keep your camera busy for hours. You won’t find too many photo galleries of downtown Chicago without a shot of Millennium Park and Cloud Gate (“The Bean”), one of the most iconic landmarks in the city. A stunning skyline coupled with cultural attractions like the Art Institute of Chicago present a Downtown where work and play peacefully coexist.
