We have gone here for years. Their chili and malts are superb. But today, I decided to change it up and order the chili on rolled pasta. This was a mistake! I totally wasted the $7.99 for chili and cavatelli. The chili, as always, was wonderful. But the pasta was way over-boiled and squishy, with no "bite" to it at... More

So they closed the one closer to Berwyn and we had to come here. Still the best chilli ever. The taste is excellent and just the right amount of spice. You can get it with or without beans. The ice cream is excellent. My wife and I had our first date at another one of their locations and we have... More

Talk about retro, this was like revisiting my youth way back in the 50's. I just loved it. It was busy, it was fun and the food was delicious. Our waitress was attentive and friendly. I had a hamburger,chili, fries and a medium drink at a very reasonable price.The menu is very varied and at the end I had eaten... More

We go to Chicago 2-3 times each year must visit Lindy's Gerties each trip or my daughters are disappointed! The shakes, ice cream and chili are the best! And I have to drink a Green River to relive those childhood moments!

Had lunch there last week and the Chili was great. We have been going there for years when we visit our family in Chicago and the food seems to only get better. We can always count on a great bowl of chili and their hamburgers and fries are top notch too

This is a weird restaurant. The booth has a velvet backing. There are stuffed animals hanging from the ceiling that are for sale. The food is good but there was one server for 14 tables! The slowest service I've had in years. I had to go to the counter to order my dessert and ask the dessert girl to get... More

Have loved Lindy's (Gerties) for as far back as I can remember. The Sweet Sixteen sundae is absolutely awesome. Definitely recommend it.

One of my favorite places to go to for a burger and chili. I also love their chili mac, that's chili with macaroni.

I've been going to this Lindy's/Gertie's since I was a little kid. We would come here after school for a quick lunch and dessert. The food has always been good, no complaints there. The staff service is decent... nothing really to complain about, but I do want to mention the condition of the restaurant itself. It's been the same set... More

We love the ice cream and chili from here. Best place for sundaes on the south side! Their prices are fair and get your orders to you pretty quickly. It just has to be said, we were there this past week, and I love the old fashioned feel to it- but this place is in serious need of some remodeling,... More
