R J Grunt's
I was surprised that it wasI was surprised that it was easy to have a business lunch...thought it would be noisy. Loved the food. And the wait staff was terrific. I had the grilled cheese and sweet potato fries. Good comfort food!5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMThank youThank you for having such a terrific menu and service! What a wonderful experience for the outoftowners I entertained at R J Grunts!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMOne of the best places forOne of the best places for an easy meal in Chicago. They have a great salad/soup bar, incredible sandwiches and all of their sides are fantastic. A personal favorite is the Mr. Chicken sandwich, a chicken version of an Italian Beef sandwich. Once can't go wrong at Grunt's--great food and even better people running it.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat neighborhood spot for dinnerI wrote a review previously about a negative experience I had at RJ Grunts and ended it by saying that I hope it was just a one-time situation.
I have gone back to this restaurant 2-3 times since then and have had nothing but good experiences. Great food, good service, great atmosphere and location.
Would recommend it to anyone.
Only complaint is that while service starts out fast and food comes out hot/fast, our server sort of disappeared after we got our food and it was difficult to track her down for refills or for the check.
Also, I prefer to dine at RJ Grunts when it is not quite as packed.. There is more room to breathe!5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Neighborhood GemFood aways good, great service, nice place to bring children. Love the salad bar. Noise level not over bearing making it easy to carry on a conversation.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMSmall place with tables verySmall place with tables very close together is about the only down side to RJ's. if you don't mind that it is a great place to dine. Try their homemade chips with your sandwich or wrap they are amazing. Our favorite lunch spot when in Lincoln Park.4/28/2013 12:00:00 AMWe go to RJ Grunts often andWe go to RJ Grunts often and enjoy the '70 music and the food.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMgreat serviceThe food is always good and the service is always top notch. We ordered ice tea and when the glass reached half full, the server was back to fill up. Always love the tuna medley (used to be called Tuna Terrific!)4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMHad a nice lunch...I enjoyed the lunch experience at RJ Grunts. The service didn't blow me away like many reviews had suggested it would, but it wasn't bad either. I got a veggie burger which was one of the best I've had in all of Chicago and my boyfriend got a burger and loved it. We got a pickle appetizer that was a little small and greasy, but we'll just know not to order it next time.
Overall, great place and we'll probably go back sometime!4/16/2013 12:00:00 AMBig Burgers & Comfort Bar FoodR J Grunts is just a great, reliable restaurant. The burgers are some of my favorite in the city: big and flavorful, with quality meat and great options for toppings. The giant mound of cottage fries (like kettle chips)that comes on the side is addictive. They have delicious wings and appetizers, and their salad bar makes EVERYONE full and happy. They also have a simple but very satisfying brunch buffet! It's a comfortable, terrific place to relax and eat before or after a day at the zoo or anywhere in Chicago. Go there!4/15/2013 12:00:00 AMFun Place!What a fun place! Friendly and attentive service, great atmosphere, something on the menu for everyone (and I would imagine it is all good). Very popular place and is well worth the wait when busy, but I would recommend reservations if you're on a schedule. Don't pass on the hand-made shakes & malts!4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMThe staff was awesome andThe staff was awesome and very attentive.
