Excellent lunch stop in Printers Row. Good selection of burgers and other sandwiches. Fries are excellent. Has outdoor seating if you desire that. Great place

Standing Room Only is a good place for sandwiches in the Printers Row area of Chicago. They have a different fresh soup every day, seasonal chili, and great sandwiches. I like their hot dogs, Cajun Chicken sandwich, and the "Boss" burger which is served with pepperjack cheese on a pretzel roll.

Convenient location, friendly staff, nice atmosphere. Food was fresh and delicious. Prices are very reasonable. Had a huge Gyro plate with small salad for only $12. Would definitely visit again.

On a recommendation called in for a typical Chicago hot dog. Had all the trimmings. It was ok but nothing spectacular.

Fun atmosphere with Chicago Sports history, but they have the best Chicken sandwiches in Chicago, hands down.

The title says it all. They're quick, clean and make good burgers and great soup. The prices are a little on the high side, but that's a reflection of where they are I guess(S Loop, printers row).

It is okay and on the way home, but if I had a choice for somewhere else, I'd go there instead. Love their cheese fries though.

This joint is awesome. I go here at least once a week. I can't stop eating the chicken! Even though I've never eaten turkey burgers before, I had to try them here and to my surprise I absolutely drool over them now. Please, if you're in the Loop and hungry, go to 610 South Dearborn. The owners are awesome and... 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.
