The food here is off the chains! Service was great, coffee piping hot and filled without chasing someone down, if you are at Midway and delayed for a bit, it's only a six dollar uber and you will not be disappointed. Big portions and delicious!!...More

A very unprepossessing building houses the best basic food in town. Nothing fancy or expensive here. This is the working man's eatery. Portions are plentiful, service great, and the line's out the door. Just around the corner from Midway Airport.

Are you kidding? This is the way a big breakfast is supposed to be. Cheap prices and great big portions. Only about a mile from the airport, so worth going before you sit your butt on a plane.
