They do have more than burgers!

Don't get me wrong, I love, love, love their burgers; but.......they also have great fish n chips, salads, grilled chicken and much more. I now get their steamed veggies as a side because they have a sort of smoke flavor like the burgers.This place will always be a go to for burgers. Prices remain... read more

In past food has been very good they are known for their burgers. Called during busy weekend and hostess answered by saying: "please don't ask me if we're busy today" then as I was asking about the wait time she hung up. Classy.

There are some cute and better restaurants in downtown Clarendon Hills or Western Springs but probably for reasons of history and its small size, this one has lines at 5pm. Simple, somewhat overpriced fare for the quality with nice service in a place that needs a good steam cleaning. The burgers are better and less expensive in Clarendon Hills but... More

I recently went on a Saturday night with 2 other friends. We arrived at 6:00 and were told it would be a 40 minute wait.

My husband and I have been coming here for many years. They have great burgers and plenty of other choices. Consistently good food. It has kind of a dark neighborhood tavern look which helps with the ghost story. Gets very crowded especially on weekends, so go early.
