Great for a quick lunch.

I love to eat lunch here if I am in the area. French fries are my favorite. Old fashion down home food. Everything is good. The parking lot is very small, but I usually find a parking place on the street. Prices very reasonable and service quick.

Everything is there - the throwback, neighborhood soda shop atmosphere (stools snaking along a worn, but clean counter; a booth or two, a few tables, with one large communal table where the gray haired gentlemen gather for coffee and such); a functioning pharmacy with no drive thru; displays of sundries (you know, drug store stuff) actually for sale; a magazine...

A favorite of those from the Irving Park/Lake Jeanette area. It's mostly regulars. The food is cheap but good. It's mostly an older crowd and high school aged kids (Page High is less than a mile away). The staff is friendly and they have great limeade and cherry cokes. If you're looking for a quick, cheap lunch, BG is the... More
