Great Burgers, Hot dogs, and fries

A little chilly when we walked in, but the service was fast and the food was hot and the best food I had tasted from a fast food place. I also like the fact they don't just serve burgers and hot dogs. Gyros, chicken nuggets, chicken sandwiches, even ice cream!

I stopped in later in the evening after one of my kids sports events. We ordered some hotdogs, a couple sub sandwiches, and a pizza puff. The lady at the counter wasn't the friendliest. The food was prepared quickly. And it was pretty standard hot dog stand food. Nothing really to complain about but nothing to rave about either.

Every time I come home, I have to hit Flips for a Vienna Beef dog dragged through the garden at Flips. fries are the best around. Matzo sphere not the best but it's the food you come here for. Italian beef, gyros and dogs. All great and good value. It's been around for over 40 years for a reason. I'll... More

I live in Florida but when I return to my Illinois hometown I visit Flips. It has THE BEST hot dogs, sausage, Italian beef, and so much more. It's really not a fine dining restaurant but well worth the stop. I will be back!

A traditional hot dog/Gyros/beef diner-style joint. Great gyros. Loaded with meat. Gyros salad dinner is so much food its ridiculous. Large menu. The Italian Beef is tasty. The do not over salt! The dogs are genuine Chicago Vienna Beef hotdogs. They also have outside dining when the weather cooperates but you are sitting on Roosevelt Road, a major thorough fare.... More

Great gyros. Loaded with meat. Gyros salad is a great alternative. Fries are the thick cut and cooked to perfection.

Large menu. The homemade italian Beef is better than Portillos in my opinion. The subs are very good too, as well as the sausage and gyros.

Flip's is on Roosevelt Rd in Glen Ellyn is a typical diner-style restaurant. They have a few small TVs inside with Chicago sports on most of the time, and outside dining for when the weather cooperates. We love going in there for the dogs and italian beef. The dogs are genuine Chicago dogs with Vienna Beef and all the fixings.... More

Have been going to this restaurant for years. We love the gyros, and a number of other items are good as well, including the turkey sub. Not the best atmosphere for eating in, but for take-out it rocks. Lots of options, and great gyros.

Flips has great food, and a nice place to sit and watch tv. I don't mind eating alone here, lots of people chow solo here. Service could be better, but I have learned to accept the attitude. I come for the food, not the conversation.
