    Fullback filet is delicious. Best twice baked potato I've ever had. Great drinks too. Go early and look at all of the memorabilia if you're a football fan. So much awesome.

    Wow. I was going to go the fish route, but decided to go beef. Ribeye, thank you very much. Damn. One of the best cuts of meat, and best seasoned. Awesome. Also, get the lobster Mac & Cheese.

    So impressed with this place. Tomahawk cut ribeye (add garlic crust) and Filet are both amaze!!!! For sides do the crab Mac and cheese and the tamale. Desert do Banana cream pie!

    Their prime steak burger is the best!!!!! You can only get it during your lunch time. Beware if your a tourist the dinner menu is an expensive steak menu$$$. No burgers around Dinner time. FYI!!!

    Half hour wait on a sunday. Service was great though. Steak with red skin mashed potatoes were bommbb!! But the best side dish was the lobster Mac n Cheese- tastes amazing!

    Great ambiance, service and food. Shrimp cocktail app was awesome, 4 huge prawns. Skip the lobster mac and cheese though, sounds awesome but not worth the price

    Find the Mike Ditka Medallion Vender and purchase a Gridiron Support Medallion for $20. Net proceeds go directly to Mike Ditka's Gridiron Greats Assistance Fund!

    The 'kick-ass paddle steak' (bone-in ribeye) is the steak to get. If you must have a filet, opt for the bone-in filet. Skip the desserts here and head somewhere else for sweets.

    Da Coach knows his way around beef—that’s a statement of fact. You don’t have to be a fan to appreciate his steak-centric meateries. However, the pot roast nachos make their own case for a visit. Read more

    The pot roast nachos are great. If there's only two of you or you don't want a lot, ask for a half order.

    For salad lovers, try the satisfying steak salad. Well-seasoned sirloin is served on a huge pile of fresh, crisp greens sprinkled with mild cheddar and french-fried onions.

    If there exists a better appetizer than the Pot Roast Nacho's at Ditka's, I'd like to know where it is and what it is.
