“An Oak Lawn fixture”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 September 2013

I used to eat here regularly as a kid many years ago. On a recent visit to Oak Lawn, I was pleased to see it was still there, and had to go in. We had a pleasant and efficient server, and the food was good. My son loved the chocolate chip pancakes, and in fact the next day we came back again to get a "to-go" order for him. Since they could make them quickly, they waited until we came to pick up the order to prepare them, so they would be fresh and hot - very thoughtful! An extensive menu - something for everyone!

“Pretty good food, outstanding service”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 August 2013 via mobile

The food is pretty good. There's a big menu with many choices. We had a large group of people. Everyone had something different and everyone liked their food. My guess would be that everything on the menu is somewhere between ok and good.

What really impressed me was the service. We got there late. They were going to close soon. But we still got great service. And the owner couldn't have been nicer. As we were leaving, the owner gave us about 10 desserts to bring home. No charge. Maybe they were just going to be thrown away, but even still, it was a really nice thing to do. And he gave a bunch of candy and suckers to the kids. Everyone left happy.

“Oak Lawn Restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 December 2012

Overall, very good. Service is excellent. A friendly staff member greets you and seats you efficiently. It is a family restaurant with a menu that has choices for everyone which includes specials. Quality of food is good to very good. Soups and salads are worth trying. Location is very good, right on 95th street in Oak Lawn and parking is available in an adjacent lot ut fills up quickly due to the popularity of this restaurant. A place worth trying out.

“A home away from home”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 October 2012

What a great place! The owners and wait staff deserve high reconition they do such a wonderful job at making u feel at home. Thier prices are decent the only down fall is the age and appearence of the resturant. But the more than friendly wait staff and flavors of all thier foods out weigh the outdated decor. Iw ould highly recommend this to anyone.

“Local's restaurant - good food, good price”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 July 2012

This restaurant has been here before I was born. The food is good, reasonable & you sure have enough to bring home for another meal.

I personally like their prime rib when they have it on the menu.
