This has long been a favorite restaurant for our family. Get an order of onion rings and some sandwich on pumpernickel. Outstanding food and atmosphere.

First time visting this place, looking for a German fix. The bratwurst platter hit the spot!! The place is big and they can host several parties privately. We had great service and meal. Affordable, cozy, traditional and yummy. Leave some space for their home made bread pudding!!

This was always a place to come where you could get decent food at a decent price. But hadn't been here in a few years and stopped in when business brought us to Glenview. Found $14 for a plastic-tasting reuben sandwich with reheated fries to be ridiculous. Sandwich was supposed to be grilled -- it certainly wasn't and appeared to... More

Burger is a relative bargain in the Chicago area - but the presentation is lacking. The onion rings are best ordered well done but they're smaller than in the past. The fries are average but we had to ask for them after our order was delivered to the table. Cole slaw as ok but why did one of our group... More

Went there with my husband for dinner. We both ordered hamburgers, which came with no toppings except lettuce (I guess we got lettuce because we ordered extra). My plate was drowning in blood, and had to ask for a clean plate. Turns out my hamburger was undercooked, which normally wouldn't be a big deal, but as nobody came back to... More

This restaurant is a family run business with a certain uniqueness. The burgers were juicy and delicious and the fries were on the house. A little on the pricier side but I would go there again if I'm around.

Good food, good service, wonderful friendly surroundings and a nice variety of food. I am not sure that these are the best burgers in town any more, but certainly among the best. My favorite are the Fried Onion strings. Worth the trip! Get with your favorite beer on tap and you are on your way to happiness. Jist a fun,... More

Burger with bacon is always good. I go there just for the onion loaf. Rye bread option for all burgers is good.

The decor has not changed since the 70's nor has the carpet been cleaned. The food remains outstanding.
