We had never been to Andersonville before and had chosen Big Jones based on the Trip Advisor reviews - we were very glad we did - it was fairly early (6 PM on a Friday), so we got a lovely people-watching open-window table. The restaurant...More

Big Jones is a small neighborhood restaurant so make reservations. If you are a tourist, particularly a foodie tourist this should be on your top 5 list. I have been here several times over the years and most recently went for an early dinner. I...More

Everything thing was outstanding and a pleasurable unique introduction to my palate... They are renovating so don't let some of the unfinished construction discourage you

One of the best Southern restaurants in Chicago, and they have some old classics on the menu. My favorite dish on the menu here is the Crawfish, the Fried Chicken is very good also.

A restaurant where the food does the talking. The Gumma Ya Ya is fantastic and the fried chicken was worth the drive. There is an amazing selection of bourbons and a great choice of beers.

Quaint little comfort food restaurant in Andersonville. Enjoyed the food, drinks and service! The only issue is that the tables are little too close together. Other than that it was awesome.
