Nookie is a nice diner in the heart of the District. This is a great place to dine anytime. Quality food and great service. Nice place to take a break. We ate here twice during the visit. Note to try any one the hamburgers and the chocolate cake.

Spent most of the early 1990s eating here all the time, perfect after party place. Surprised that when I come back all these years later that none of the seating/decor is different than it was in 1991! The service was good. The food was good - if you are looking for good simple American food this is the place. However,... More

Nookies is my go-to brunch and lunch restaurant. Never let down by the service nor the food. Not overpriced and good for vegetarians and meat-eaters alike. Definitely check it out after a night hitting Boystown, lots of interesting characters and conversations!

I came here often years ago when I just started coming to Chicago and been for 4 years. Not as good as I remember but still above average. I had a very tasteless Sante Fe Chicken salad and to be honest it was just simply too big a portion.

Quick place to eat with a wide variety of good food. My wife enjoyed her sausage filled omelet and my smokehouse frittata reminded me of Spain. Our waitress was very good, too.

Nookies Tree is a great diner experience. The fare is simple and affordable. The service is good. We've always eaten at the location on Halsted in Boystown. My favorite item is the tuna salad sandwich (solid white albacore on marbled rye bread). Most sandwiches come with soup, which is a nice touch. It's great to duck into Nookies for a... More

I love this place! I was born and raised in Chicago and use to go to Nookie's almost once a week for years. I have since moved to Atlanta, but make it a point to always make a visit to Nookie's when I am making a visit home like I just did on April 13. The food is ALWAYS great... More

My friends and I are breakfast at Nookies and we were very pleased with the choices on the menu and the taste of the food. I got blueberry pancakes and ordered strawberries on top. I guess I wasn't specific enough because it came with blueberries and strawberries and I got charged 2$ extra for the strawberries. I thought that was... More
