    A wonderful classic diner in the heart of downtown! Also, a great place to start your journey down route 66! Even when the line is long, it downstairs take much time to get through it and get seated. They're impetus are huge. There coffee is great. And the staff is the BEST! I WOULD DEFINITELY GO BACK!

    What terrific place to grab a bite in a historic route 66 dinner. After we were seated they brought homemade donut holes & orange slices then took our order. I ordered the special, French Toast with strawberries, banana & toasted coconut, so good. We also got the Texas hash & eggs (note 4 eggs) potatoes with homemade cinnamon bread. Again yummy. They were slammed & the service was great & if I lived here I would be a regular.

    This is one of the oldest breakfast diners located in Chicago, it stands proud serve in the people of Chicago for 99 years. I found a service to be helpful the food was very nice although I wish I could’ve tried more things on the menu because it all looked delicious! The great thing about this diner is that it opens early at 6 am which means you can get in there and enjoy nearly breakfast before your day starts!

    Nice cozy place and the lady serving us was very sweet. We went with the specials and that's where things went downhill. First, there was no mention of the price of the specials on the board. We ordered the French toast and the steak skillet. The steak was so rubbery that it was difficult to chew. It was not the best. The French toast was decent but it wasn't sweet as you expect from the French toast. The coffee was decent, not good. We also added the apple pie and it was extra sweet. This is something that was way too much for the breakfast. The shocker came at the end when the bill came out to be $72. I still can't process the steak skillet my wife had which was all chewy was freaking $28. She said she wished she had the Dunkin donuts sandwich across the street. My French toast also seemed overpriced. Two stars only for the warm welcome by the attenders.

    Wanted a taste of a proper old school American diner and got exactly that here. The food was excellent and the coffee was really good. I tried the 2 egg with chicken sausage and it was really good, portions are huge too. The staff were all really nice and it was a great way to start a Sunday
