A group of 4 had a couple hours to spare before our train was departing. Looking for a restaurant to get a quick bite we stumbled upon a place called Jake Melnick's. The sign of award winning wings captured our attention and thought we would give it a shot. Our waiter Devon was great answering all of our questions. He... More

First time there and wanted to try this place for a long time and I wasn't really disappointed ! It got really crowded around 7pm because of cubs game but fortunately we arrived before and could get served really quickly for some drinks at the bar. Prices are fair and lower than what you can find around there. The barmaid... More

We stumbled upon this place and decided to give it a try for lunch. The wings were very good. Only 8 to an order, but about twice the size as usual wings. My friend ordered the "hot" and found them too hot even though that's his usual at other places. I think the 8 wings were about $12 My hubby... More

We were on our way to another restaurant but parked in front of this one so decided to go in instead. Glad we did. Wait was only like 10 minutes although it was packed. Food was awesome. Tried the mac n cheese, skillet cornbread, turkey burger and fries, and chicken tenders. My friend ordered the Buffalo chicken salad. Good portions.... More
