I have been to Hackney's locations throughout the Chicago area, but the original (on Harms) is still the one that best speaks of the long-standing tradition that the family has provided for decades. The Hackney Burger, medium on dark rye, with Swiss is the best burger around. Order the onion loaf crumbled and you'll never forget it.

My neighbors and I ate dinner at the Hackney's on Harms Road @ 5 PM on a Sunday night, Labor Day weekend. I had never been, but they said it's Wonderful ! I was hesititant when they said it's outdoors, YES, 80% for the humidity and the temperature in the mid 80's. The patio, though tight quarters had wonderful breezes,... More

This restaurant is a family owned operation in a large, classic home. It is a local landmark and everyone knows it. Everything from the drinks to the appetizers to the food is fantastic. I would strongly recommend the Onion Brick appetizer, it is not on the healthy menu, but the taste is amazing. Burgers are the house specialty, served on... More

Came here for lunch with a friend after a dress fitting at Gigi's next door. A Glenview institution, I had never been here before. They have a lovely patio with outdoor dining and it was a perfect summer day so we decided to give it a try. Obviously well known for their burgers I decided to give one a try.... More

Been going here for years. What's not to like. Onion Rings, fries, good burger, what could anyone ask for more? Also, good drink. Would recommend Hackney's to anyone.

For a good family burger you can't beat Hackney's, either on Lake or Harms. Great burgers, and of course you must order the brick of onion rings. A half-order is plenty. I like the fried clams appetizer too - nice and chewy. The Harms patio is a nice place for a drink.

Bad Sandwich. Dark rye not fresh (fell apart and not fully sliced in half) Sauce - sweet (probably thousand island mixes with relish ??) NO apparent sourkraut. but worse... the Meat. I have Never before experience a Reuben sandwich with tough meat except yesterday at Hackneys on Harms. [ lucky I have my own teeth] After twenty or so visits... More

Best place around for burgers or just a turkey sandwich. Everything made to order and fresh. Outdoor patio a summer tradition.

Best onion rings in basket form any where bar none. They have an awesome burger. ASk for your bread or bun on the side.You can get a CANNIBAL BURGER, only place I know of.

Go for the onion rings. The burgers are on rye bread. But the very best is the chocolate and mint ice cream dessert with Oreo crust and fudge sauce and whipped cream awesome, large portions to share! Casual and fun.
