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!

Introduced a spot that was a childhood favorite of mine to my daughter and two of her besties following our annual zoolights outing.

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.

My husband asked for a night out in the city for Christmas. He suggested RJGrunts and A comedy club. A great combination. I purchased Lettuce Entertain YouGift cards .The bonus $25 is awesome. We will definitely be visiting in the Spring.

One of my favorite original Chicago Lettuce Entertain You restaurants. Always a classic and always a great dinner pre/post the zoo! Loud and rambunctious but great for families!
