Looking for a inexpensive place to eat close by our motel without loud music. Didn't want to Wendy's. Spotted this place across the street. Glad we found it. Good dog s and really good fries!

I've been going to Moondoggies for years. It is virtually an institution on the west side of Glenview. The menu is pretty broad for an establishment like this - which is a bit of a glorified gyro/hot dog house, with a 50's themed decor. To my mind, the best items are the dogs - prepared as any Chicagoan would appreciate;... More

The food is what you would expect from a lunch-counter type of diner. The food was of average quality, the portions struck me as a wee small. Still for someone in a hurry, this wasn't bad at all.

When entering the place usually a line of people. They have great hot dogs that I always tried. Decoration is kind of with records and famous people from 50's, music on and such. Prices are okay, there is a parking lot in front of it. People are friendly. Service is good.

Moondoggies is a Glenview fixture. It is clean and attractive, and it serves excellent food to takeout or eat in, in a 1950 style diner eatery. I usually order gyros, ribs, or chicken

Nestled in a non-descript shopping center, one finds a gem. The sandwiches are freshly made; fries are as good as McDonalds; decor is attractive; entire space is clean and neat;and staff is friendly. The gyros was good, perhaps a bit too crisp. The chicken sandwiches, hot dogs, and burgers are worth a trip. Specials include steak sandwiches. You will be... More

Ribs are great, side salads are huge. Food comes with lots of extras, fries and garlic bread with ribs, pita with salads. Great find.

So we stopped here for lunch. They had a special on Italian sausage. My husband asked "are they spicy or sweet sausage?" The woman at the counter replied, "Neither. They are just regular." I had chicken lemon soup that was actually very good. I also had the jalapeño poppers because they were made with cream cheese. I usually see them... More
