From The Owners of Lindy's Chili Inc

It's two favorites in one at this laid-back South Side chili and ice cream emporium.

RUDE Server!! – Went to Lindy's on Archer and had a horrible experience. The waitress was very rude! If the owner would just realize that the place may be too busy for one elderly waitress to handle, then maybe the waitress wouldn't have to get so mean and grumpy to her customers. I won't be back again at prime lunch time. The waitress didn't even come back to ask us how everything was once she threw our food down in front of us!

best hot fudge sundaes – & aunt/uncle then my mother owned the locksmith shop couple of blocks from Lindy's for many years. I remember when Gerties was by the movie theater that use to be on ArcherhThen they moved to a location I think it was on Kedzie (not sure any more i had a stroke last year).But I do remember that was one of the places where my uncle would take me when he would lose a backgammon bet with me. We use eat Lindy's chili once in awhile when mom didn't feel like making homemade.

Great place for a pregame meal – I've stopped at Lindy's Chili several times on my way to Sox/Bulls/Blackhawks games and I've never been disappointed. It looks like a take-out place, but it isn't. You actually sit down and order from a menu. When it comes to chili, I'm one of those people who has to use Beano because I get terrible gas, so I like that Lindy's has a no-bean chili.

It's two favorites in one at this laid-back South Side chili and ice cream emporium. – The Scene
Serving some of the city's best chili since 1924, this Chicago original entices local families and a late-night crowd of hungry cops. It's a modest space with a low drop ceiling, with vintage sports photos adorning the dark, wood-paneled walls. Singles grab stools at the long, narrow bar, while seat-yourself booths and tables offer more breathing room for couples with kids.

The Food
Locals rave about the thick, hearty tomato- and ground beef-flecked chili, served with or without beans or macaroni plus cheese, sour cream and chopped onions on request. For a twist, try some atop cavatelli with a side of garlic bread for dipping. Crunchy charred Polish sausage with salty, hand-cut fries is another favorite. On the sweet side, there are mile-high, old-fashioned sundaes topped with real whipped cream and Nabisco wafers; belt-busting banana splits; and triple-thick chocolate milk shakes topped with maraschino cherries.
