    Expensive beer. One draft is as much as a six pack. But we're a captive audience with no where else to go.

    Stay away from the draft beer- really nasty aftertaste. Root beer is good. Decent food for an airport location.

    Probably the cheapest real breakfast in an airport. Omelettes and breakfast sandwiches all between $5 and $9 freshly made to order, simple and quite tasty!

    By far the best place to eat and drink in Concourse C, not that there's much competition.

    Want a real breakfast? The Berghoff is the only restaurant at Ohare operated by the real owners! And their food is amazing! Try a western omelette. Ham, cheese, peppers, and a side of bacon! Awesome!

    This is the only eatery and bar in the entire ORD that is privately owned and operated by the actual namesake. So you can trust 100% it's really the same as the real deal downtown!

    Breakfast here is best in the ORD airport. Try the western wrap. Ham, cheese, onions, peppers. Can't go wrong! And if not your thing; go with something else. It's all made fresh in front of you!

    The Berghoff by far has the best breakfast selection in ORD. Freshly made in front of you to order; you can't beat a Chicago tradition that is family owned/operated even inside ORD; No HMSHost here!

    If you want an omelet for breakfast, get a wrap instead. It's basically an omelet in a tortilla. It's cheaper and easier to eat because the plastic forks are crap.

    This place is a pain if you're traveling alone - no table service, and the food and drinks are in separate rooms.

    Panini and wraps are great. The pizza is terrible and way overpriced. Walk down to Gate 22 and get REAL Chicago style pizza for the same price but MUCH better.

    Hated my turkey sandwich. Tasted badly heated up and not fresh at all. For a Saturday at noon with a huge rush, you'd expect better. I tried someone else's pizza and it was okay.
  • Francis S.

    The Reuben is very good. If you want your beer in a glass, order it separately at the bar rather than with the food. Genevive, as others have mentioned, is excellent, and was great with our baby.
  • Jeff D.
    Jeff DetrickMarch 25, 2013
    Food tastes great but $13.76 for a sandwich (no chips or fries, just a sandwich) and a soda is a bit outrageous!

    If you have a long layover, a Reuben & an Oberon at the bar are a nice retreat. Underberg & soda is refreshing if you're in a hurry!

    The illy coffee doesn't taste like illy should... Maybe they add water to it. I will say though it's pretty impressive to see how fast their two staff members can get you through the line.
