    We come to Delite Cafe & Deli for one thing: grilled sandwiches. When Delite fires up their panini press and tucks your sandwich inside, magical things happen. The bread get toasty and crisp, with lovely char marks from the grill. Cheese gets slightly melty and gooey. The whole package transforms from regular ol’ sandwich to craveworthy p [...]

    • Neighborhood: Northwest
    • Price Level:   
    • Vegetarian Options
    • Free Parking Available

    At first glance, John’s Grill doesn’t even look like it’s open for business. It would be easy to drive right past this little diner on West Chicago, just a few blocks west of Wyoming, without every giving it a second thought. There’s not much else open on the block, either - a beauty salon and liquor store long-shuttered along with a fe [...]

    The interior of Legends Grill on Jefferson Ave. is instantly charming. Like a 1950s diner and soda fountain, the place has black and white checkerboard floors. Tabletops decked out with a boomerang pattern are surrounded by teal cushioned chairs with white trim. Playful neon signage dots the walls. We’ve driven past Legends Grill dozens of [...]

You would never expect to find the kind of uncommon deliciousness being served inside. On the inside, the place looks a lot like a Coney Island, cozy and simple with a mix of booths and tables. The restau [...]

Building, you’ll find the diner theme in touches like chrome panels, the big silver fork and knife hanging on the wall, and the case of homemade pastries [...]

    • Neighborhood: Northwest
    • Price Level:   
    • Vegetarian Options
    • Cards Accepted
    • Free Parking Available

    The thing we come to Nicky D’s for often isn’t a coney at all. It’s corned beef. They’re as well known for it as they are for coneys. Even the sign out front proclaims the corned beef to be “famous.” The beef is tender and tangy, with just the right amount of fat-to-lean ratio. We like ours on an onion roll with crunchy, tangy colesl [...]
