“Always Good Food!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 27, 2012

The Patio is definitely a "cut" above McDonald's, Wendy's, KFC, BK, etc. Maybe even a wee bit better than Portillos, but definitely higher priced. We love the extremely tasty Greek Chicken, and we have always loved their BBQ Ribs. Sandwiches are very good also, especially the hot sub on grilled Italian rolls---I think it is called the "Torpedo"?? You always have a choice of fries or baked potato.

This is not the original Tinley Park location---this Patio is much larger. It is part of a small family-owned chain. I have always been satisfied with the service at both TP Patios. We choose to do carryouts, but many people are always dining inside. I'm pretty sure that they serve beer & maybe wine?? The ambience is way nicer than in the original Patio about 6 blocks to the east, also on 159th St. The parking lot is huge, and the Patio is real easy to find in Tinley Park! Always a nice treat!! And only one mile from my door!! That is a very nice touch.......................

“Nothing Spectacular.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 18, 2012

What can I say? Is this a Greek style Panera where there are no servers ?? The food is alright. This is just for something quick at lunch time.

“Best place for ribs!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 13, 2012

Whenever I am in Chicago I visit the Patio. A tradition that began when I lived there. They are always consistent, never a bad meal and priced very affordable. I would place them with the best!

“RIBS ARE AWESOME!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 22, 2011

Great food and concept, you order when you come in and they bring your food to your table. On the pricey side but the food is tasty and good quality. The soups are homemade and delicious! We had chicken pitas and ribs and the rotisserie chicken, so flavorful! Will definitely be back when visiting the family in the Orland Park area!
