Great menu if you don't mind counter ordering food brought out by numbers. Beef, burgers, dogs, salads and great soups.

The Patio has some of the best ribs around. I also like their Patty Melts and there Cream of Chicken Soup on a cold Chicago day. You order at the counter - then they bring you your food! Place is pretty big inside!

I enjoyed the Italian Beef sandwich here last month while in town for business. An excellent sandwich here. Friendly staff, clean and well stocked dining area greet a visitor. I will dine here again when next in Darien.

We came for New Years. We were hungry and it served the purpose. It was our first time, my relative praised this place so much, that I had better expectations. Overall it was good tho.

I have been eating at The Patio for years. The quality of the ribs has really gone down. Half slabs are way too small compared to other well known rib restaurants, and the other day they were over cooked, pretty much burnt. I ordered four half slab dinners to-go, which cost over $60 only to get home and fined them... More

Had take away from The Patio recently. Started with the chicken wings - meaty and about 8-9 in the order. A bit spicy for my wife, but I liked them. We then split a full slab of their ribs. Very tender and tasty. Baked potato on the side. We were able to pick up the order at the drive through... More

I was referred to this restaurant by a friend of mine and I am so glad I was. I called and reserved space for 45 people. They had an area set aside for us when we arrived early. You order at a counter and they bring the food to your table. This is great when dining with a large group... More

We had dinner there for the first time. The chopped salad, fish tacos and hamburgers are all good. You order at the counter and then take a number to your seat. They got the food out quickly. Decent house wine too.

There were four of us and each had something different. I had the Mango Salmon and a baked potato and thought it was good. Another had the BBQ chicken-liked it and had enough to take some home. The brisket tacos got a rave review and the spicy corn fritters were enjoyed by all.
