    Manager got a bit defensive about a tweet regarding a missing ingredient in the cocktail; NBD, but he just basically gave me the impression he doesn't understand customer service

    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.

    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.

    If you like spicy food, get the hottest wings they have. I got the "Really Hot" and didn't think they were spicy at all. The peanut butter shake is incredible.

    Nothing like the Buffalo Chicken Nachos! Cannot be beat!

    Considering I keep hearing good things, the wings are rather disappointing, and I had the Super Hot Buffalo; they're not really that hot and definitely not very plump or juicy :-(

    Lettuce Entertain You is the best when it comes to handling food allergies; the rest of the restaurant industry needs to take note. I have a ton of food allergies & I'm always comfortable eating here!

    The chili wasn't that spectacular; hearty but not much flavor, to be honest

    Half prices apps and wings 3-6. This place is ultimate throwback. 70's. French onion soup is the real deal

    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.

    I liked the Strawberry Daiquiri, but the "lone independent strawberry riding on top with whipped cream" was missing; NBD, but should have been told that they were out

    Not worth it. Sh*t show. Front is totally unorganized. Tables are jammed. Hard to maneuver with kids.

    There are only two places I will eat ground meat. RJ Grunts tops my list! They also have very good gluten-free buns, and you never know who you'll run into there. :-)

    This tightly packed hamburger shack is where to get the thick, juicy “Gruntburger,” topped with addictive fried onions and blue-cheese dressing Read more

    delicious greasy grub (and a salad bar!) in a typical 70s atmosphere. the music is excellent but it's the service that really stands out, from the minute you set foot through the revolving door. A++
