I can't point to one meal time that's better than any other. I like lunch sometimes for breakfast, so it's nice that you can have anything on the menu anytime. I like consistency and I... More

This great "traditional diner" is operated and managed by father and son Greek restaurateurs. They know what the neighborhood wants and craves for, large portions, wide menu selection, friendly staff and above all clean, delicious and decent priced. The place is always packed for breakfast and lunch. brunches are great too. Warm, family diner.

This is the absolute opposite of a shi-shi restaurant -- it is about as down-home as you can get. Eggs, sandwiches, soups, and salads all formidable in size and of high quality in the spirit of midwest diners of all time. There is definitely something for everyone here. It is a bad month if I don't get to eat here... More

Have eaten here often and have Never had a bad meal. Prices are reasonable and food is plentiful. Close to public transportation. A very helpful staff and more coffee than you will ever be able to finish.

This family-owned restaurant was a delight to find. Our grandson (also named George) especially enjoyed "Chocolate Heaven," satisfying his appetite for pancakes beyond our expectations. The daily specials are also a good value and tasty. I would definitely return next time we are in the Oak Park area.
