Great place! We are regulars!
Good food and service! Great place to eat. Highly recommend!
All terrific. They could not be more friendly and accommodating
Dark, dated location. Vinyl seats in booths deteriorated. Server was indifferent, to say the least. I ordered the special salad of the day (spinach) and couldn't even eat it. Terrible dressing and looked like it was just thrown on the plate. Server cleared my plate and didn't ask if it was okay. My daughter was with me and a friend of hers, so I didn't want to say anything to embarrass her. As if that wasn't bad enough, they both ordered desserts. The milkshake was beautifully presented but the Key Lime pie looked like gloop. Or like it fell on the floor and was served anyway! I couldn't believe my eyes! I'm attaching a photo of the pie, as it was served. We did not touch or change it.
Bottom line, I'm very sorry & embarrassed that I recommended meeting there. Never going back.
Hi Diane, thanks for taking the time to let us know about the issues you experienced. We can assure you that any time you are dissatisfied with your order, we will correct it. Your pie certainly should not have gone out that way and well talk with your server to ensure they meet our higher quality of plating standards.
This is a Chicago institution- dependable hamburgers- the great dark bread and the fried onion brick.
The drinks are full and generous. My dirty Martini was just right.
The service is excellent- fast and forthcoming.
I went twice while there.
I've been going to Hackney's for years. You can't go wrong with the onion loaf and the burgers were tasty just like I remember them.
The prices at Hackneys have gone up significantly. $7.00 for a side salad or a cup of soup is too expensive.
