Featured on Food Network’s Diner’s, Drive-Ins and Dives, Check Please, and more, Glenn’s Diner is no stranger to accolades, and for good reason. Some of the things they offer sounds too good to be true, like the All You Can Eat Alaskan King Crab Legs Tuesdays and the All You Can Eat Shrimp Thursdays, both of which come with Parmesan corn-on-the-cob and coleslaw.
Whether it’s for a family outing, date night change of pace, or a solo patio hang-out on a warm day, it’s a great spot to be. Turn Glenn’s Diner into your diner.

ELEVEN CITY DINER
Combining old school charm with new school upscale dining, Eleven City is not your average diner. The food is exceptional, and if you think that means they don’t still have a massive menu like most spots, you’d be wrong—it’s enormous. They have a full bar, upbeat music is always playing, and it’s located in the South Loop, so it’s all about having fun on top of the deliciousness.
The service is exceptional, the owner is hands-on, and it’s just a short walk away from the Mag Mile. Eleven City Diner is simply a cut above the rest.
