I'm not a big fan of restaurants without windows, but my wife loves this place and has been going here for years. The food is good and prices are reasonable. The kids like the coloring, the mints and dumb dumbs, and the suit of armor.

We probably go about 4 times a year. We should go more. It is a fun place for everyone ... pre-teens, teens, casual dates, families, and every one else you can think of. It is almost always busy at dinner time. So if you go, plan on a little bit of a wait; however, we have never waited more than... More

I know it's been around for decades, and people don't like change, having said that, I wish they could do an extreme restaurant makeover. Brighter, open, healthier. I know they must have the finances for an update. The food is deep fried, big burgers and lots of fries. I cannot believe this establishment is still busy! I would hate to... More

Its been maybe 10 years since we have eaten here, nothing changed. The decor is early 70's maybe late 60's, they have not put a penny into the place since they built it back then. Thats OK if the food, service and value are there, they are not. Food, is somewhat tasteless even the burgers. Order one you get a... More

Stick to the burgers and fries - great, for the price, and better than fast food. Service is always good.

This was one of the few restaurants in town when we moved here 30 years ago. It is still here, usually full of locals and serves some great chili which I always order. I hear from others that the hamburgers, ribs and other things are tasty too. A casual atmosphere, great for families, sports teams, after meeting hang out, and... More

This place is great. We had planned on going there before but it just never worked out. Finally got there and was able to try their "Famous" hamburgers. They lived up to the reputation. Juicy burger done exactly as requested. The others with me had various other meals and all reported them to be equally good. Friendly wait staff and... More

Now if you are looking for 'world-class' food, this is not the place. But, good food at a reasonable price and with the charm of an old european style restaurant, this will work. Located on the very busy main street of Roosevelt, which runs through most of the Northwest Suburbs of Chicago, it can be missed if you are not... More

Dark, old looking interior and not so great food. Service was ok, a little lackluster. This place is usually busy, must be an acquired taste for longer term residents.
