My wife and I had no idea where we were going, only that we were going somewhere on Chicago's Northwest Side to have dinner with friends who were celebrating an anniversary and the birth of a grandson. In that context, we became acquainted with Chicago Joe's. Located at 2256 West Irving Park Road, it has a Las Vegas flair, which... More

We stopped at Chicago Joe's on our way back from taking pictures at Wrigley Field after the parade for the Chicago Cubs had started. We have been here a number of times before and have always enjoyed the atmosphere, the food and the service. Today - the service was horrid. To be fair, I'm not going to mention who the... More

The best oysters in town! They are super friendly in Chicago Joes as well. We also had some Gumbo and it really hit the spot,

Friends of ours are moving, just sold their apartment and are planning to take their realtor out to dinner to celebrate. "Where are you going?" we asked. "Chicago Joe's," they responded. We had never heard of the place, which is located at 2256 West Irving Park Road. Turns out Chicago Joe's has been a North Center neighborhood institution for years,... More

A Chicago Classic. Local celebs eat here! Brunch is amazing. Nice outdoor patio in the summer, with plenty of free parking in the lot. Try the Sloppy Joe for sure. Potato salad rocks too.

I would not recommend you eat here, the service was one of the worst I have ever had! The server acted hurried, bothered and oblivious to anything I asked her. I ordered the meatloaf because the waitress almost gave me no other option and was disgusting! I randomly ran a TripAdvisor on the way wait out of Wrigleyville and thought... More

We have been to Chicago Joe's and enjoy the food. Everything is cooked like home-style. The burgers are very good and there is a variety. The meat loaf dinner was very close to what I remember my mother used to make. It does not have that "tastes the same as everyplace else" taste. Reasonably priced and there is a lot... More

First time eating here so I wasn't sure what to expect. We went for dinner on a Saturday night. Plenty of tables and parking so no waiting. The bread and cracker basket that was delivered when we sat down was nice since we were starving.... and the food itself was pretty good...the gumbo soup could have been a meal in... More
