Do you like onion rings?

Hackney's is a North Shore institution. with both colorful indoor/outdoor dining, it is a great place for burgers, beers, and a huge order of onion rings. This is the original location, but several others run by the same family located in other northern suburbs. All are good, although this original... read more

All the North Shore locals know about Hackney's going back decades. You go there for the burgers and the brick of fried onions. And, oh yeah, the Irish pub type bar. The burgers are the best around in this area, bar none. Everybody in the family can find something on the menu. The place is usually packed on the weekends,... More

Hackney's is the place to come for al fresco dining whether after golf for an ice-cold Haacker-Schorr, or after the school play with Grandma and the kids. The inside is tight with carpeting and tavern furnishings from the 1970's, but the yard is great on a nice day. The servers are local folks who are friendly and helpful, and the... More

We were here for a baby shower, the food was decent but honestly nothing special. I had the burger because everyone talked it up like it was amazing. Not so. It was simply average, at best. The lovely man who helped our party Jose was the highlight of the meal. Very kind and helpful. Crab salad was imitation crab and... More

It's been awhile since my family and I visited this place. Throughout the years my in-laws took us here more than any other restaurant. They seem to specialize in burgers and this pile of fried onions which everyone seems to like and is unique to them. I ordered fried shrimp which was really good, but the sauce had an odd... More

We were taken there by family and it is a local stalwart. The atmosphere is very casual and informal. We were seated out in the garden and enjoyed walking around while waiting for our food. We must also admit we went over to the bar to check the score of the ball game. We had great service and attention as... More

Nearly 4 decades ago we left the Glenview area for other parts of the nation. We happened to be in the neighborhood recently and decided to stop in at the original Hackney's on Harms. It is much the same as we remember it. Homey, comfortable, and friendly with great food. One thing on the menu that reminds me of Hackney's... More

Best anywhere in the country coming in basket from deep frying. Hamburgers are awesome, but order with bread on the side.

In the summer it is great to eat outside since Chicago usually has a terrible winter. The onion rings cannot be beat. The rest of the food is slightly above average.
