We were traveling through the Chicago-area 2 days before Christmas and saw this diner on Trip Advisor. We went there with our 2 teenage daughters. The restaurant itself was clean and had nice decor. The staff was very friendly and the bathrooms clean and serviced.
I ordered the Buddy Burger and my husband got some type of Italian beef with hot peppers. Fries were yummy. However my buddy burger was not good at all. It had no flavor. I ate half and dumped the rest. My husband said his sandwich was also nothing to write home about. My youngest daughter got the chicken noodle soup and she said the best part was the Zesta crackers. Our oldest got the chicken strips....again, just so-so. We dropped $40 and change on this meal and threw half of it out.
We frequent many diners when we're out of town. Often they have the best food and are more fun then your run-of-the-mill chain restaurants. I am not complaining about the greasiness of the burgers. I happen to love a good greasy juicy flavorful burger. But this was not the case.
