Great outdoor place to have a burger in the summer. I usually order the bison burger on dark rye. I also order an onion loaf extra crispy. The fries are just ok. We like to sit next to the little kids play house so the kids have a great time.

This old hamberger place has a number of unit but I like the Harms location the best. Perfect for a cold winter night and extra special in the summer on a spoacios patio. Family owned. Alway rated one of the best burgers in Chicagoland.

The restaurant reminds you of a Northwoods lodge and it certainly isn't the largest restaurant. What it lacks in size, it makes up in the taste of the food. One of the appetizers that they offer is an onion brick, which comes in a full brick size, a half brick and a quarter brick. For two people,the quarter brick is... More

I really like this place for a good lunch. Have eaten here about 10 times, consistently good. Great burgers, ruebens, and other comfort food with daily specials. What I especially like is the option of a 4 oz burger size especially if you overload on the onion brick appetizer AND the options of other side orders instead of french fries.... More

This is no place for "foodies" but if you appreciate a North Shore institution defined by history and family this is a must visit. The brick of crispy onion rings is an old style classic. This place is perfect for families, screaming babies and all! There's a game room for the older kids and large separate rooms for large extended... More

I am not crazy about this place though it's very popular in Glenview Illinois. I am not a huge fan of burgers, wild west food and style. It is very popular and crowded but I can't recommend it over other places.

Can't beat the famous Hackneyburger on dark rye, and the French fried onion loaf. They also have a very good spinach and strawberry salad. Great family restaurant.

We met some old friends for dinner at the Lake Street on a Saturday night. The place was crowded with families and other groups. Plus, there was a large party downstairs. Despite the mass of people our group of 8 received excellent service. The burgers and onion rings are as good as advertised, and the prices were reasonable. The kids... More

After seeing advertisements for their famous "Hackneyburger", we decided to try out the Harms Road location. What an incredible disappointment. The burgers were not handcrafted--rather, they looked like perfectly round frozen patties and tasted incredibly bland. Our server, after taking our order, disappeared for 40 minutes. Other servers came to take orders, serve our food. When I had to go... More

We stopped on on a Friday evening on the way back from the airport. We just came from Ireland and thought we were back there with the hospitality. The prime rib sandwich was great, generous helping and done just right. The others had excellent burgers. Service was very good. Overall a great experience after a long trip.
