Lou Mitchell's is a great greasy diner. Hung over? Go here. Traveling on a train or bus? Go here. Want fast service? Go here. Want huge portions? You know the drill. This is right across the street from Union Station, so it's always busy. Their service is phenomenal, and the atmosphere is an old school diner vibe. The food was good, but this is not haute cuisine. It's a greasy spoon, and it does so unapologetically. The portions are humongous. No, really. They're huge. It's ridiculous. I actually laughed when the waitress brought me my Eggs Benedict. 4 eggs? Really? Ha! If you plan on traveling via car, don't let the person driving eat here. They're going to fall asleep in under 15 minutes. Guaranteed. I'll be back the next time I'm taking the Amtrak....

We were in town for the Marathon and needed a quick stop for lunch. This place was hopping! Lets try it. We got right in and were not disappointed! The service was excellent for how busy they were. Food came out quickly and was really good. Absolutely would come here again!

We visited this place on Father's Day weekend. It's so crowded, but it's so worth it. Our server was very welcoming and very knowledgeable of what they serve. I ordered traditional egg Benedict and coffee, which is very fulfilling. Everything was made fresh. Parking was across the street and was easy to find, maybe because we came pretty early, which was around 9 am. Breakfast is served until 10:30 a.m., and then lunch will be served afterward. Will be returning in the future.

Wonderful experience dining at this historic restaurant. Staff is so warm and friendly, food is delicious and coffee is amazing. Very popular so crowded during breakfast and brunch hours. Unfortunately they don’t take reservations but it’s definitely worth the wait. Also love their complimentary donut hole and fruit. If you’re looking for a place to grab amazing breakfast, look no further.

I don't recall the last time I had breakfast on the go, but on my train ride down, I found this little "mom and pop shop" and decided to give it a go. They aren't messing around on their portions!!! It absolutely hit the spot and if I am ever in the area again, I will be taking a little stroll up the block from Union Station to try something else on the menu. I sat at the counter and looked at what everyone else was getting and everything looked SO delicious.

Most people go here for the food, I am sure! However, the experience itself is just fun! They celebrated their 100th anniversary this year! This place is a mainstay in Chicago! It has this quaint, family atmosphere in the middle of a metropolis! The servers were great and tried to stay on top of everything even though it was Sunday morning rush! The coffee was fresh, and the bakery items were delicious! Portions are very generous!! Go if you are ever in The Windy City!

A little pricey but MASSIVE portions of food! Complimentary orange slice and doughnut hole when you first sit down as a little appetizer. The omelette was fluffy and the scalloped potatoes so good and comes with incredible toast (you can pick your bread i got cinnamon raisin)

Best old school, wait, no — best breakfast ANYWHERE. Properly awesome coffee, served in cups with saucers and refilled constantly, that takes you “body and soul” back in time to the days of the most perfect breakfast diner experience. Servers in uniform.. home-baked pastries and breads and desserts.. 2 eggs really served as 4, omelettes, waffles and all the classic dishes.. booths and 20th-century counter service, too! FIVE STARS forever!

I love a great diner, and I wasn’t disappointed. Great atmosphere and the French Toast and coffee was amazing. Wished it was closer to our hotel while visiting Chicago because we would’ve gone more than once.
