The hardest part about moving away from Lincoln Park was leaving RJ Grunts, and those absolutely delectable chicken fingers, cottage chips and a nice subsequent chocolate milkshake.

An Old Favorite – Met some girlfriends last night in the city and went to our old favorite - RJ Grunts. I love this place - the waitresses are always so friendly and we love looking at all their pictures on the wall. Unfortunately, we had to go on a really hot day, so the temperature soup wasn't as cheap as we're used to!! LOL Go here if you're in the city looking for good food in a fun place.

best lettuce restaurant – EVERYTIME IVE BEEN TO GRUNTS THEY TREAT ME LIKE A KING. THE PRICES ARE REASONABLE FOR LINCOLN PARK AND THE SANDWICHES ARE EXCEPTIONAL. IF THERE IS SOMETHING YOU NEED OR DONT LIKE, THE SERVERS AND THE MANAGERS GO ABOVE AND BEYOND TO MAKE THE CORRECTION. MY SON WHO WORKS FOR COLDSTONE THINKS GRUNTS SHAKES ARE THE BEST HE'S EVER HAD. IM NOT A BIG FRY GUY AND THEY, THE FRIES, DONT LOOK THAT GOOD... BUT I DONT USUALLY LIKE FRIES ANYWHERE. TRY GRUNTS ON A WEEKNIGHT WHEN THEY ARE CROWDED AND U'LL LOVE IT

Great salads and burgers, friendly service and a prime view of Lincoln Park make this a local favorite for laid-back dining. – In Short
The original Lettuce Entertain You restaurant, Grunts is also the least manufactured, with a cozy, neighborhood feel, high-backed wooden booths, mellow '70s music and an amiable local crowd. The menu offers reasonably priced burgers, chili and chicken sandwiches, plus thick malts and shakes served with the tin. The extensive, excellent salad bar--Grunts claims to have invented the concept--features two soups, three kinds of greens, a half-dozen fresh fruits, seven dressings and 37 toppings.

Always A Pleasure! – We always look forward to dining here and feel especially appreciated as patrons. The food is fresh + tasty leaving us completely satisfied. There is plenty to sink your teeth into here and the ambience is inviting. Just plan ahead so you don't have to wait too long in line...but boy is it worth the wait.

Only one that deserves a 10! – Been coming here since they opened. Never ever had a bad burger. Medium RARE means Medium Rare, cooked properly all times. The French Onion soup is the best. Bring back the crackers and specialty cheese, please.

Mediocre – Ther service is good. The salad bar is not as good as it looks...the veggies aren't all that fresh. The beer battered onion rings are pretty good though there aren't that many. We enjoyed the fresh juice...great idea and the bread is great!

Love This Place – I've loved this place for years! It has changed the salad bar (not what it used to be with that great tuna salad they used to have on it) but it has introduced some new items such as a second soup. Great location to go walking before or after a great meal. Waitresses are great!

The Salad Bar.... – Easily the best salad bar in the city. overall good basic food-try the chicken potpie soup if it's available. great 70's atmosphere with 70's dance music always on. a must is their dessert-try the chocolate chip cookie/ice cream/hot fudge concoction-far superior to other versions. worth a trip alone when you need a sweet fix.

You'll be satisfied! – This little neighborhood eatery is a great find. The food is great, the staff is friendly, and the manager is engaging. If you visit on the weekends, you may have to wait for a table, but you won't be disappointed. The delicious food and salad bar make the wait worthwhile. And, if you're lucky, you may just get a free dessert!

Best Burger in Chicago! – Coming from L.A., where I believe the best hamburgers in the country exist (i.e. In-N-Out, Fatburger, Apple Pan), I was happily surprised to find the best burger in Chicago. Great service with pictures of all the servers on the wall. Huge Salad bar and soup the cost of the weather outside.
