This is a restaurant we’ve frequented for a long time, and it never disappoints. The menu is expansive, the prices are reasonable, and the servers are always eager to please. Great fish, chicken, ribs and beef. Can’t go wrong. Free parking in lot.

The Gale Street Inn is right across the street from the Jefferson Park Blue Line station, the first subway stop within Chicago's city limits and just three stops (and no more than 15 minutes) away from the Rosemont station. I am a meat-and-potatoes guy and...More
