Homey little Place with Good Food for Great Prices

This is not a fancy place and a lot of the patrons are regulars. There are numerous lunch and dinner specials and a full range of homemade patries. Don't pass on the homemade soups. Don't go in looking for gournet fare. You will find decent portions of comforite favorites. Various size... read more

The Silver Stallion is definitely the typical neighborhood "Greek-owned" restaurant, but the food was better than many others and the staff was very friendly. We had the meat loaf dinner and the chicken parmesan (though the parmesan was actually a mozzarella cheese), and both were tasty and there was certainly more than enough food. The menu is more than adequate... More

It is located at 1275 Lee Street in Des Plaines. I am from restaurant people and Veronica, a lady that reminded me of a dozen classic waitresses with whom I have worked. The breakfast was like I ordered and like I remember from my youth. Eat here, remember and enjoy.

Best little restaurant in Des Plaines. Great food and at reasonable price. Friendly wait staff always willing to help. Really enjoyed the Greek Style Liver and streaks are a great deal also. If you are looking for a nice little restaurant to take the family here in Des Plaines you will enjoy this one. Say Hello to Gus for me.

The restaurant is just across from the parking lot of the hotel. The food was well prepared, tasty and wholesome. The wait staff is professional and attentive.

Sister and I stayed at the hotel next door and we're tired from a long day of driving. We had a large lunch so we were looking for something light. We had soup and rolls followed with dessert it was good. Soup was hot and tasty and they served a basket of crusty bread to the table. I had a... More

The food is good for the money but the waitress never smile, and realky not friendly therefore it's not a friendly environment. I have lived in this area for over 15 year's and been in a handful of times and really it's because of the staff that I really don't enjoy going there and only go when all other restaurants... More

On a Sunday morning when most breakfast places in the City had lines a mile long, we decided to have breakfast near the airport. Since I grew up in Des Plaines, and my mother was a regular here, I remembered the restaurant and thought it would be a good choice. I guess everyone was still in church because 75% of... More

My family ate breakfast here while staying at the Best Western that is right next door. Service was great, coffee refills kept coming and the food was really good. If in town again we'll definitely go back.

The silver Stallion is past its prime. They often run out of the daily special. They need a new chef with fresh ideas. They were once a go to place NOT any more.
