At first, we didn't know what to expect. Ronny's III looks like no big deal when you walk in. It is tucked away right near an elevated train stop and doesn't look like anything special from the outside. Then, when you get inside, you see...More

Great food. BBQ is good. Wasn't thrilled with steak. Sides and service were out of this world. Will be back

The steak I had was poorly cooked. It started out partly cooked sitting in a pile. Then it was cooked a little but when I got to the bone it was raw. The veggies were a lot to be desired and then salad was poor.

I used to go her as a kid after a trip to Riverview. Still good food fast but a much nicer atmosphere. Hard working bus staff--accommodating servers( it's cafeteria style) interesting sides and convenient to downtown.

Ronny's is located conveniently at the Thompson Center near the CTA Clark/Lake stop. They have great food, including daily specials and the prices are inexpensive for downtown. Portions are huge. Come with a big appetite or come with a friend and split a meal.

We had tried to go on a Sunday evening looking for a classic steak but they were closed, so we went back the following day. I wish we hadn't. All the steaks were overcooked, as was the lobster in my friends' surf&turf. My ribs were...More
