“Good food at a reasonable price.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2012

Good american food at a reasonable price. They do have a killer salad bar, though. We were able to get a last minute table on a Saturday night at 8:00pm, which is saying something.

“Big everything”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2012

Big burgers, sandwiches, beers and more in Lincoln Park. A good spot for a bite before or after a trip to the zoo, it's just a short walk away. This is a place the kids will love as well as the parent who needs a glass of wine and a time out.

“Very Good!! Great Comfort Food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2012

We stop at Grunts all the time- it is so good. Great atmosphere- it's an older restaurant and the walls are filled with pictures of all the past girls that have worked there. We love the cheese fries and have never had a bad meal. Good for all occasions. It is across from Lincoln Park Zoo- so it's great to stop in after visiting the zoo!

“R.J. Grunts still got it!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2012

R.J. Grunts is still a great restaurant with a very casual atmosphere. We visited the restaurant on 9/8/12. Located in the Lincoln Park area, parking may be a bit difficult, but valet parking on a Saturday night was only $9. The food is plentiful. We had the BBQ ribs and turkey burger, along with the soup and salad bar. They provide you with a slab of ribs which was very tender and the sauce was excellent. The turkey burger was fabulous with tomato, lettuce, pickle and thousand island dressing. Great meal and the service was very good. Also, they played 70's music too!
