Always order a full order of fried onions

Great beer selection and great burgers. Ask for the Hackney’s Original French Fried Onions, just amazing!

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

I first became acquainted with Hackney's on Harms Road in Glenview, then the Hackney's on Lake Street in Glenview. I thought it was a North Shore-only restaurant. Then I moved to Chicago and discovered the Hackney's on South Dearborn, in Printer's Row. Now there is a Hackney's in Palos Park, not far from my boyhood home in Blue Island. Too... More

Hackney's is a smallish but not small bar but it has very delicious food. The service is has always been good here. I love the black bean burger here. The best veggie burger in town.

This is our first visit to the downtown location and was within walking distance from the Hilton hotel. We always look forward to the onion rings, great sandwiches and beer. We were not disappointed.

Hackney's has been in Chicago since the 1930's. The Dearborn Street location has some of the best burgers in town, great service, and a wide selection of beers on tap.

If you're ever in the Chicago area, please visit Hackney's for really great American food. Try the Iceberg Lettuce Salad, the Chicken Pesto Sourdough Melt, the HackneyBurger, the Cole Slaw, and the Strawberry Shortcake Dessert. All absolutely good! We went there three times during our stay and we never got bored ordering and tasting the same dishes each time! The... More

Cold and overcooked....did I say cold and OVERCOOKED? If not let me say it again, the Octoberfest sliders were overcooked, we ordered rare, and cold. The onion ring cake, a fond memory from childhood, cam almost black and cold. When I sent it all back, the reorder onion brick came done hot and perfectly cooked and the burgers still overcooked....

I am a big fan of this place. The service is excellent. The food is great pub fare. And it is an interesting location in the South Loop. Great selection of beers on tap as well.

Based on the rating we were hoping for a really good meal but were disappointed. Fish and chips were nothing special, and the steak was definitely not worth the price.
