This is a throwback place with a huge menu, dozens of sandwiches and burgers and egg dishes, with an updated diner decor. Service was exceptional and my tuna melt was delicious. We were there mid-week for lunch, I imagine it gets crowded on weekend mornings.

Came here for breakfast early one morning. The staff was friendly and the place was clean. I ordered a basic egg and chicken sausage breakfast. The chicken apple sausage was sweeter than i was used too but tasty.

Outstanding breakfast. We had a party of four and all were extremely happy with their choice on the menu. The hash browns were amazing. I would highly recommend any Nookies locations.

The staff are friendly, the service is quick and the food is amazing. Everything from the pancakes to the omelettes are delicious and even though their coffee isn't particularly fancy, it's good.

The place in Chicago to have a hearty breakfast at a reasonable price. Friendly staff, wide selection, freshly squeezed orange juice, and large portions. Everything was fresh and well prepared.

i ran upon this place in Old Town and was completely impressed. The menu has so many different options, including breakfast served all day. Everything from eggs Benedict to pizza, burgers, rueben, french dip. Quality food and huge portions, all for a very reasonable price.

Since my wife and I discovered Nookies restaurant at 1746 North Wells Street a few years ago, we have become addicted to the food and service and friendly Old Town neighborhood atmosphere and delicious home cooking at the 24-hour staple. This is my seventh review...More

We went to Nookie's for breakfast and were greeted by a wonderfully friendly and competent staff. They have a great team of servers along with amazing food. This appears to be very much a "locals" restaurant with repeat customers. We would definitely eat there again...More
