A native Chicagoan recommended The Little Goat Diner during our week-long visit from Dallas, so we hopped the 'L' to Morgan Station and walked a couple blocks to check it out. By design we timed our arrival before 5:00 pm to avoid the reported crowds. 'Good move, because it was SRO by the time we finished our tasty meal.

The all-day-breakfast seemed like a good idea, and the eggs and bacon didn't disappoint. My Reuben sandwich was stuffed high with paper-thin pastrami and homemade kimchi/sauerkraut. But while waiting for our meals, we spied some crazy huge plates of food being served. The Machos Nachos and the Goat Almighty were ridiculous and begged the question, "Did we really leave Texas where everything is bigger?"

'A great waitstaff, who seemed to enjoy working here. The diner decor is fun and super casual. Bring the kids, and hang out in trendy West Loop. Though pricey, The Little Goat Diner delivers tasty comfort food with a smile. We Texans approve, Chicago!

Looked for something a little different close to Chicago Union Station and we were not disappointed. Very tasty food and the four of us cleaned our plates. 4 different selections. All excellent choices. Other choices I would expect to be just as tasty.

Wonderful lunch here, great area to wander round and we were pleased to get a table as you can't reserve. Food was brilliant. We couldn't work out how they made it all taste so good. We had the Spanish omelette and the beef sandwich. Only wish we'd remembered how big portions can be- we didn't really need the fries or toast but we battled on bravely . Thank you for a memorable meal.

Went for Sunday brunch with a reservation...got in on time - our server Anthony was terrific. My wife had the Parathas Burrito (indian flatbread . sunny side eggs . avocado-bean salad) and it was large and had terrific, fresh ingredients; my son had the special Chorizo Corn bread with eggs and arugula salad - really tasty. But I had the winner - the Bull's Eye french toast (eggs. crispy chicken. sweet onion brioche. bbq maple syrup) - the fried eggs were inside the eggy, custardy bread, and it was topped with pieces of crispy breaded fried chicken, with the syrup over all - really great. Was really impressed with the quality and portions, and the service.
