Still the best salad bar. Daily specials are a good idea. Laura had the barbecue chicken.
It was our anniversary
Busy time we went seating was nice Accross the bar. Milkshake just right. Yummy hamburger s
This place was cozy and quaint. I loved the food, ambience, and the service was great too! I will be returning.
I like RJ Grunt but a little noisy and cramp. Valet Parking is very expensive $12 and if you include tip that comes out to $15 .. That is 25% of the meal so too expensive for me .. The food is OK ..
The flavor of their burgers are delicious and remind me of summer time grilling. The onion rings are yummy. Lots of food - expect leftovers.
Fun family night out!
Issue with line to be seated. More staff is needed.
We had a great time at RJ Grunts. We each got a burger that was great, the service was top notch and the venue was great. Love the music they play too!
I come for the music and stay for the food. The best neighborhood place for a great burger. Very relaxed atmosphere. Just don’t get seated near a table with little kids or your meal will consist of screaming children and yelling parents.
Loved the salad bar!
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.
Great American food, wonderful service, cool retro vibe and music. One of our faves.
Always a great time. Make sure you make a reservation or you might be waiting a while. Excellent food, drinks, & service.
Been going there for over 45 years
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.
Great food! Fast service and would definitely eat there again!
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.
The salad bar had a wide variety plus the items were properly cut for a salad. I ordered a medium well cheeseburger and it was cooked to perfection. This burger was probably the best burger I have had the pleasure to enjoy! The tables in this restaurant are very close together. On a Saturday late morning we experienced children who thought they were dining at home - talking excessively load, roaming about invading our space by tipping chairs back into where we were seated. We tried twice to slide our table further from them. The parents did nothing to help these children learn restaurant etiquette. This is obviously not RJ Grunts' fault but shared so people know what to expect.
Went here for my birthday - glad I did. Great food and ambience!
Great place! One of my favs!
Excellent food and service
Food is rock solid and the staff is very accommodating. Bartenders were nice and responsive too.
Have been here many times in the past but on this occasion, seemed like food portions were smaller and hamburger buns a bit stale.
Disappointing, very crowded, too many tables in a cramped and small area. Very loud, can't hear others in your party, bathrooms need to be updated & somehow - enlarged.
Cool place for good food and drinks!
Little tide but manageable .
I like the location and the spirit of employees .
Generous portions, fantastic service, beautiful salad bar. My only negative is the cost of the valet.
With so many great options on the menu, it's hard to choose. The burger and salad bar are always the best.
I have not been here in about 35 years it has stayed the same. I took my girlfriend there for her birthday before going to the theater. Look forward to coming back again soon
As always the food is great, their burgers are awesome and the wings I’ve never had them better then here.
My family loves the food. It has something for everyone and all age groups.
Really great food and great location really enjoyed the experience and also close to the zoo which was really convenient
We haven't been to RJ Grunts for a long time. Just as good as ever. Good food, good price good staff.
Introduced a spot that was a childhood favorite of mine to my daughter and two of her besties following our annual zoolights outing.
Fun for the entire family.
Seats need some cushions. Service was great. I had the triple tuna melt, I would toast the muffins way more. The tuna was cold and the cheese was not melted very much. I would have sent it back but I was super hungry. The homemade chips were great just enough salt and very tasty. I think more attention to small details like the tuna melt could improve.
super friendly. vibrant atmosphere. yummy good burgers and great salad bar.
Always consistent and so good. Great vibe and music. Lots of fun
