One of my favorite Chicago places. Excellent food - best pork chops ever. Love the Shepherd's Pie and pretty much everything. Lunch has fabulous tilapia tacos. Wine/ beer or soft drinks. Dining indoor, outdoor or at the sports bar. I always bring guests here.

Hadn't eaten here in a while, but the food is still very good. They start you with a tasty warm mini-loaf of bread. One of the Monday night specials is two thick and delicious pork chops for $13 (the single pork chop price). This is...More
