The first Lettuce Entertain You restaurant, Grunts still exudes the funky, devil-may-care lifestyle of the 70s in its style, décor, music, and menu. Happily for all of us, the best eating of that day continues to be some of the best today.

While there"s a huge menu that's as much fun to eat your way through as it is to read, many of Grunts' old favorites spark return visits. The burgers are arguably the best in town. The salad bar boasts more than 50 ingredients daily. Giant malts and milkshakes are hand scooped and come in a rainbow of favors. Oh! Don't forget the barbecued baby back ribs and pulled pork sandwiches!

Meal was excellent as always. Laura had the barbecued chicken for the first time, as it was the daily special. I had the bacon swiss hamburger.

We had a reservation and were late b/c of weather and bus. They graciously held our table. We are from St. Louis and KC. We loved the food and will recommend to friends that visit Chicago. Thanks for a fun dining experience

We had great service, good food, and an overall great experience. Burgers were great, fries less so, but my husbands chips were really good. We’d go back again if in the area.

RJ Grunts will always have my favorite salad bar in the city of Chicago. I also ordered a burger that was a bit more rare than medium-rare (there was a nice sear on the outside, but the middle was very pink), but overall it was a good experience.

The atmosphere is very upbeat and lively. You can sit at the bar or at a table. The portions of food are very generous. Great salad bar, great burgers and reasonable drink prices. We got together with friends. A good time was had by all.
