“Not your typical greasy spoon diner”
Au Cheval is not your typical greasy spoon diner. It's house-made foods, creative interpretations on classic dishes, and comfortable, easy-going atmosphere— It's big cozy eats. Playful takes on old-school favorites like a fried bologna sandwich, or a pork porterhouse are all made to order, before your eyes in the open kitchen. At the bar, 30+ international beers on tap, speciality cocktails, and a rockin' wine list make Au Cheval an inviting place to kick back. And we haven't even touched on the custom crafted music... yet. Come in and check it out.
I didn't think it was possible to make a bologna sandwich so noteworthy that I'd write a review for it but this place did it. Everything we tried on the menu was outstanding. The burger seems to be their best know dish, it comes with a perfectly cooked egg and, for extra, bacon that's about a cm thick, which we naturally opted for. We paired our sandwiches with a plate of hash browns with duck heart gravy. Only gripe is the wait can be ridiculous, we were told 3 hours on Friday evening the first time we went, so we came back at 2pm the next day and only waited 20 min.
Just might be the best burger in all of Chicago.
Stunning. Baloney sandwich, burger, hash browns, fried chicken, and fries are all among the best of their genres I've had. No reservations so put your name down and come prepared to wait. Haymarket across the street has a great selection for drinks.
An American-French diner concept (from restaurateur Brendan Sodikoff of Maude's Liquor Bar, Bavette's and Gilt Bar) is home to one of the city's finest burgers, indulgent scrambled eggs with seared foie gras, and a superlative shaved vegetable salad. It's great for a midnight bite--especially if you're craving chilaquiles (served late-night only).
Despite its name, the Single Burger ($11) is stacked with two juicy griddled beef patties and smothered in melted cheddar. When asked if you'd like to add a fried egg and thick-cut bacon, the answer is always "yes."
