Okay, I'm a picker eater and often write pretty critical reviews. But I've had really good luck at this restaurant overall. Can't say everything has been perfect every time, but the things I've ordered have been darn good, and considering this is a cross between...More

This place is always busy and the food is always good. The food comes out hot and tastes awesome. I really like the meatloaf platter. It's almost too much food to eat. I really enjoy the cream of chicken rice soup. It's a must have...More

Order your food, get a number, serve your own drinks and the food appears at your table by a polite server. Wide menu selection from sandwiches to dinners. Plenty of parking, good illumination, wide aisles, clean restroom, ADA accessible.

The Patio has some of the best ribs around. I also like their Patty Melts and there Cream of Chicken Soup on a cold Chicago day. You order at the counter - then they bring you your food! Place is pretty big inside!

I have been eating at The Patio for years. The quality of the ribs has really gone down. Half slabs are way too small compared to other well known rib restaurants, and the other day they were over cooked, pretty much burnt. I ordered four...More
