Best Ribs

I went to the Silver Stallion for lunch toady and had their half slab of ribs special along with a cup of chicken noodle soup, fries, and a small dish of ice cream for dessert. The ribs were the best I have had in a long time. The meat just fell off the bone and they were not too heavily... read more

The Silver Stallion's building, menu and atmosphere are generic and bland. It seems to appeal to an older crowd, maybe because it is inexpensive, nothing fancy and nothing exciting or surprising. For me that's a big turn off. It's like a million other restaurants with nothing to distinguish itself or brag about. It's not a place I'd recommend for meals.

We have not found one thing on this menu that we don't like. The egg lemon soup is the best (but I think only served on Tuesday & Saturday). We eat here at least every other month (it was more frequent before we had kids). It is also our tradition to eat here on the day that we get back... More

This restaurant has very good food at reasonable prices. Their lemon egg soup is the best I have ever had! The club is ridiculously huge and comes with fries and soup. What a great deal. I would recommend this place.

We arrived at our motel tired and hungry. We asked where we could get "something simple" to eat. We were grateful that this restautant was right next door! We were impressed with the scope of the menu--a little of everything--and reasonable besides! The dinner specials came with soup or salad, and choice of dessert, which included rice pudding and tapioca.... More

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 tables and booths accommodate singles to families. most of... 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.
