My husband adores this hole in the wall diner, and can't get enough of their Greek chicken. I find the food acceptable, the wine list awful, the pita unexciting, and the French fries too thick.

The Greek chicken with rice ...yumm...The lemon soup...super...The village salad...fresh/as in Greece. My husband loves the skirt steak. Friendly efficient service from the same waitstaff . Guess they like working there. We have enjoyed every meal we've had there. It's lively, bright lights, but not too loud. Our "go to" casual neighborhood place for a quick dinner. Remember to bring cash.

I've enjoyed everything I've had there. Can't beat their burgers. Even the vegetarian sandwiches are wonderful. The place is very simply decorated, but always has a crowd. It's like the Cheers of the neighborhood. No matter what the economy is going, people are eating at Cross Rhodes!

This is the place to have lunch befoe a Northwestern football game. The gyro is heavy with meat and a tangy thick yogurt sauce. The pita was fresh. we also have the greek white wine , which too is acceptable. We will return when ever we visit the NU campus. P.S. exit the CTA at teh Dempster exit.
