Typical American food with good hamburgers and fabulous onion rings. Pleasant location but can get very busy.

If you have been to Glenview you have been to Hackneys. And if you haven't you need to. Classic burgers, big salads and hearty sandwiches are the menu items but the star is the onion loaf! Try it out!

We hosted my future daughter-in-law's bridal shower in the Wastoff room- it was perfect! Sally was very helpful in planning the details; everything we needed was arranged. The menu choices pleased all the guests, including those with special diets. The food was great and arrived as scheduled. Our server was Tavo, a friendly and accommodating server. I would recommend Hackneys... More

We have a very good meal with friends; the patio umbrellas are huge, which makes for great patio dining. We arrived early on Sunday, around 5pm. The patio was nearly empty. It was full by the time we left at 7pm. Our friends loved the onion loaf appetizer. Everyone ordered burgers, which were very good. The 4 oz is relatively... More

It's been YEARS! As a '68 graduate of Regina, it literally has been years, but the ambiance and quality is still as great as it was back then. We had a half order of the onion rings and the Hackneyburger. Wow. What's kept me away for so long? Might it be about 700 miles??? (We live in NC now) Good... More

Hackney's is an institution on the North Shore of Chicago. The Harms Road location is the original, and still has the most charm. Sit inside or out, and you feel that you are in a north woods bar, in the forest, when actually you are close the Old Orchard shopping center and the forest preserves. The food is consistently good,... More

All of the Hackney's we've visited have consistently good food and friendly service, including this one. Although it's a (small) chain, as far as I know it's still family owned which shows in the quality of food and service. The one difference with this Hackneys when compared to others is that here, seating is a bit cramped (at least in... More

I have been coming back to this location for over 45 years. I grew up 2 miles from it and now that I live in Texas I make a point of returning to it every time I come to Chicago. And as always they did not disappoint me. The Hackney Burger is still on my top 3 along with their... More

Outside patio is very delightful. Ruben and Rachel have become our favorites as we now have returned 2 more times this summer. Returned for 1/2 price wine day with other family members and again with my grandson who loved the burger!! Haven't had the onion brick in years - glad it still tasted the same! Staff works as a team... More
