Ed Debevic's

Ed Debevic's Review

Gum-snapping waiters in garish costumes trade quips and snide remarks with customers at this tongue-in-cheek re-creation of a 1950s diner, but it's all good, clean fun (except perhaps when they dance on the counter without removing their shoes). The menu is deep and cheap with 10 different hamburgers, six chili preparations, four types of hot dogs, a large sandwich selection, and "deluxe plates" such as meatloaf, pot roast, and chicken-fried steak. Kids love it here; unlike a real 1950s diner, however, Ed's has a selection of cocktails and wines for their parents.

  • Chicago and Where Else

    We've never been to Chicago other than changing planes.

    We'd like to go for a few days but that's a lot of flying to spend 3-4 days in one place.

    Any add-ons in the area?

    Thanks. Read more
