Order your food, get a number, serve your own drinks and the food appears at your table by a polite server. Wide menu selection from sandwiches to dinners. Plenty of parking, good illumination, wide aisles, clean restroom, ADA accessible.

Been going there for 25 years. Love the place, until tonight. Normally we wait 10 minutes for our food, sometimes more, sometimes less. I've never complained. Tonight they were very, very busy, and after waiting for almost 40 minutes and watching a number of people complain and a number of incorrect orders being returned, I said something to the manager...

Great menu if you don't mind counter ordering food brought out by numbers. Beef, burgers, dogs, salads and great soups.

The Patio has some of the best ribs around. I also like their Patty Melts and there Cream of Chicken Soup on a cold Chicago day. You order at the counter - then they bring you your food! Place is pretty big inside!

I enjoyed the Italian Beef sandwich here last month while in town for business. An excellent sandwich here. Friendly staff, clean and well stocked dining area greet a visitor. I will dine here again when next in Darien.

We came for New Years. We were hungry and it served the purpose. It was our first time, my relative praised this place so much, that I had better expectations. Overall it was good tho.

I have been eating at The Patio for years. The quality of the ribs has really gone down. Half slabs are way too small compared to other well known rib restaurants, and the other day they were over cooked, pretty much burnt. I ordered four half slab dinners to-go, which cost over $60 only to get home and fined them... More

Had take away from The Patio recently. Started with the chicken wings - meaty and about 8-9 in the order. A bit spicy for my wife, but I liked them. We then split a full slab of their ribs. Very tender and tasty. Baked potato on the side. We were able to pick up the order at the drive through... More

I was referred to this restaurant by a friend of mine and I am so glad I was. I called and reserved space for 45 people. They had an area set aside for us when we arrived early. You order at a counter and they bring the food to your table. This is great when dining with a large group... More
