I go here during the summer to hang out on their patio and have a meal. I have been coming here for over 40 years and have noticed that their brick of onions are shrinking while the price continues to grow. At least they haven't changed the size of their burger and unlimited fries. I take my 90 year old... More

Honestly the BEST and FIRST Basket or loaf of Onion rings, now it varying sizes. Very Old Family operation and small chain. Everything is awesome and best burger around for my money. Great Beer Selection. The Patio triples seating in the summer and is off street like your back yard setting. Always Always busy.

The food at this Hackneys is consistently good. Prices are reasonable and menu is nicely varied as well. But service felt rushed even though no one waiting for tables. Server trying to be too efficient?

I have been coming here since I was a young teenager.....forty years ago. This has been a super consistent place for a great burger on homemade dark rye bread accompanied by the onion loaf. When I return to the area I make sure to stop with my husband and kids. Recommend it highly!

I recently had lunch here, and the food was better than ever. My friend and I had the Hackneyburger on dark rye, and the half-loaf of onion rings. Yum! I've literally been coming to this restaurant for 60+ years, and I would swear that the carpet has not been cleaned in all that time. Come on, Hackney's. Put some of... More

A group of colleagues meet for lunch to celebrate the retirement of a colleague. The place does not take table reservation so we were advised to arrive early so we could have a table at the outdoor garden. The wait staff was friendly and the service was quick. The block of onion rings were delicious. I ordered the burger with... More

Hackney's is an institution in Glenview. There are few better places for burgers. They have a great variety of burgers that are all very good (try their inside out burger). You should also try their onion loaf.

Been there forever and rightly so. This is their original unit and they have ORIGINAL ONION BASKET. This place has been on TV's Diners & Dives. Best hamburger on dark rye. Place is very small but triples in the summer when the patio opens. Great beer selections.
