    A group of 4 of us had lunch there on Saturday. I am the only vegetarian of the group, but the other 3 really enjoyed it. I was visiting Chicago from Denver this weekend and was told to check out the diner. It was very very good. I don’t know how you get the Reuben to taste to authentic, but it was really good. The others really enjoyed their entrees as well. I must say however that the desserts were a bit dry….not sure why!

    All in all, I would recommend anyone to eat here.
