I was shocked that a place specializing in bar food would have such good spinach & artichoke dip. Their grilled cheese is also amazing! Husband had the prime burger, it was also good.

The restaurant is a truly Chicago restaurant / bar. Good hot dogs, large food portions, awesome sandwiches, and decent beer selection. Cool atmosphere! Not a place to go if you are watching your diet or eating healthy. However, the food is delicious. The customer service...More

I honestly love DT Kirby's food. They specialize in Chicago-style dogs and large portioned bar food and excellent sandwiches. I've never had anything at Kirby's I didn't like. However, when the owner states that one cannot have ketchup for fries or a knife to cut...More

Amazing bar food. The fried mushrooms are my favorite. The staff are very friendly. A fun atmosphere to hang out or catch a game.
