Catering to the neurotic compensation of eating
Soup and salad bar is a home run!
Grunt Burger was excellent! Great shakes too!
the original salad bar rocks! BEST rootbeer floats!
Chips are great (fried on site). Skip the fries.
onion rings. hickory burger & cottage fries. cookie in a bowl. REPEAT.
The buffalo chicken turbo nachos here -- with buffalo chicken strips on top -- are HANDS DOWN the best nachos I've ever had.
Service is always good, food is pretty good. No place to be fancy, jeans will work. Nice location, good atmosphere...if your looking for a good burger & beer this is your place ; )
Cookie in a bowl! Best dessert in Chicago. Save room!
Perfect for the after zoo animal appetite !
They have the most amazing music here :) oh and the burgers are pretty fantastic ;)
This place has an expansive salad bar, but try the peppercorn burger! Also, shakes here are amazing & reasonably priced.
Outstanding Cheeseburgers. If your headed to zoo lights warm-up with a Grunts Hard Cider.
It's all about the chicken fingers!!!!!!
I can't really recommend their house cocktails: stick to beer and wine.
The grunt burger is the best!!
If you get Curtis as a bartender you are lucky. He is a total hottie!
Dixie Chicken. No doubt. Also, the cookie ice cream thing. You're going to pop.
The home made chips are delicious!!!
Don't miss the homemade shakes and malts!
Without a doubt the best chocolate chip cream cheese dip in the world! Get it from the salad bar and add it to some graham crackers, I sometimes come just for that!
The cookie sunday is so amazing!!!!
The shakes are amazing...seriously. This place is usually packed during the warmer months. Staff is always very friendly and food is delish! Burgers and wraps are awesome.
Salads are the bomb and don't forget the cheese dip!
If country chicken is a special the day you visit - DONT HESITATE - order it.
Get anything with the name "grunt" in it
Soup and salad bar. The Cream of Mushroom is delicious!
Loved the yowza burger - peppercorn beef, spicy ketchup, pepper jack & smoked bacon. Save room for a shake! Ask for a booth by the window for views of the park.
Was here once a million years ago. I think it was fine. Remember drinking Newcastle and enjoying it. I guess its named for some bird the owner was giving it to or something. That's funny.
So, do you get the famous burgers or the famous salad bar? Split a burger and each get the salad bar! The kitchen even cut our burger in half and served it on two plates.
3 dollar tall boy PBRs might be the best regular drink special in the area
Order the buffalo chicken nachos! They are perfection!
Kind of an unorganized mess getting in on a weekend. Tons of children running around. Big salad bar, burgers... Basically if you are not close enough to Ruby Tuesdays or TgiFridays go here
Haven't been here for years. Still the same. Great food, salad bar and service. Classic!!
The burgers are amazing!
Go for the salad bar. Burgers are great too. It's a little cramped but fun atmosphere. Great place to go before or after zoo
1st Lettuce Entertain You restaurant
great good and service, highly recommend this restaurant! Try the Salad Bar!
R J Grunts has improved on the classic grilled cheese by simply adding...more cheese. No one can claim this thing is balanced, but that's really not the point.
The California wrap is excellent.
Not worth it. Sh*t show. Front is totally unorganized. Tables are jammed. Hard to maneuver with kids.
One of the best veggie burgers I've had!
The Sunday special, Dixie Chicken, is outstanding.
The shakes are great!
Best salad bar in Chicago, unbelievable chili and to die for burgers...paired with your favorite pint and you can't go wrong!
The French dip was pure perfection
