Eleven City Diner

by gastronomicbypass

Location: 1112 S. Wabash

In one word – Bad

Food – This place is supposed to be reminiscent of a local New York City diner. While they have got the correct menu – matza ball soup, reubens and malt shakes, the execution is not on par with your local Brooklyn diner. I even went here with real New Yorkers to confirm my suspicion. I have given this place a couple of chances and have yet to like a single thing on the menu.

Drink – I mean, it’s a diner. As long as their soda fountain machines work, they’re doing okay.

Service – One time I was here I had this really rude waitress. I was confused if I was at a new Chicago diner hoping to gain a following or at Ed Debevic’s.

Occasion – If you’re still on board for sub par food, come here for a very casual occasion. Maybe get a quick bite here before a Bears game at Soldier Field (don’t worry you can get a hot dog at the game to redeem the meal you had the diner).

Scene – To their credit, when you walk in, the place does look like a high quality diner. There’s a bar area if you are dining alone or in a hurry.

Dress – Jeans, sweatshirts, the casual attire is totally appropriate here.

Cost – For a simple meal, expect to pay $10 – 15.

If you liked…, try – Sammy’s
