This place is awful! Bad service, worse food. – I walked here for some onion rings because it is close to my house. I walked in and the place was empty however no one seemed in much of a hurry to wait on me. I finally ordered onion rings only to be told they don't have them any more. Someone from out back hollered to the front that they do in fact have them. Then I saw on their huge wall menu that they have veggie burgers so I wanted to order that as well. The girls behind the counter looked at me like I was from Mars and told me they did not have that. I pointed to the menu to show them that it is listed. After it was confirmed that they had this food, these girls carried on a conversation in front of me blatantly not taking my order. Racist perhaps?? I finally said "hello, can you take my order??" Still no other customers in this place. They took my order and I returned almost 20 minutes later and it still wasn't ready. I finally got home and opened my burger to find that there was NOTHING on it. I added my own condiments, lettuce, and pickle out of desperation to have lunch. I took one bite and had to spit it out. It tasted like plastic. I think it had been in the freezer for 10 years. I had two soggy, warm but burned onion rings dripping in grease and had to throw out the rest. I had a stomach ache for the rest of the day. And this disgusting lunch cost $13.00!

Shame on me for ordering this at a rib place but my husband tried their ribs a couple of months ago and said they were awful. Don't waste your time or money here.

I Like to Eat – OOooh boy, Robinson's Ribs brings me back to the days of old. Having lived about 10 minutes away from it my whole life, I can say that they are some of the best ribs I've ever eaten in Chicago and the world. The sauce makes the meal! The restaurant itself may not look that great on the inside, but the food is superb. Recommended to all. And if you don't want to go to Oak Park, they always have a booth at the Taste of Chicago. Mmmmmmmm.
