This was always a place to come where you could get decent food at a decent price. But hadn't been here in a few years and stopped in when business brought us to Glenview. Found $14 for a plastic-tasting reuben sandwich with reheated fries to be ridiculous. Sandwich was supposed to be grilled -- it certainly wasn't and appeared to... More

Burger is a relative bargain in the Chicago area - but the presentation is lacking. The onion rings are best ordered well done but they're smaller than in the past. The fries are average but we had to ask for them after our order was delivered to the table. Cole slaw as ok but why did one of our group... More

My plate was drowning in blood, and had to ask for a clean plate. Turns out my hamburger was undercooked, which normally wouldn't be a big deal, but as nobody came back to... More

This restaurant is a family run business with a certain uniqueness. The burgers were juicy and delicious and the fries were on the house. A little on the pricier side but I would go there again if I'm around.

Good food, good service, wonderful friendly surroundings and a nice variety of food. I am not sure that these are the best burgers in town any more, but certainly among the best. My favorite are the Fried Onion strings. Worth the trip! Get with your favorite beer on tap and you are on your way to happiness. Jist a fun,... More

Burger with bacon is always good. I go there just for the onion loaf. Rye bread option for all burgers is good.

The decor has not changed since the 70's nor has the carpet been cleaned. The food remains outstanding.

Going to Hackney's has become a tradition in our family, and we're always looking forward to a great time at this restaurant. The food offerings are fantastic and plentiful, and the friendly wait personnel makes everyone feel welcome. Hackney's is the place to go in Chicagoland!

Great place to meet the girls for lunch! Cold beer and famous onion rings, followed by a great burger or sandwich in a dimly lit bar with outstanding wait service! Great rainy day comfort!
