    I can't believe these are my neighbors.........

  • More importantly, whites are not the majority in Chicago and have not been for a number of years. Non-hispanic whites probably are only about 32% of the Chicago population based on the 2010 census. White has not defined the Chicago experience for a number of years either since the public schools are predominantly non-white to go along with the population.

    The only two times I ate here, they screwed our order. Only went back the second time to give them the benefit of the doubt. No go. It wasn't even busy neither time, that is what stuck with me. I ordered a Reuben both times (I love a good Reuben) First time it was hardly toasted , cold and had NO swiss cheese ( ick) and the second time, it had no sauerkraut. And still cold to the touch. Asked the waitperson why, her response.....they ran out...huh..it was 5pm and they ran out? And she wasn't really nice about it. .Who actually eats a Reuben without sauerkraut?If I wanted a cold corned beef sandwich with swiss or cold with sauerkraut only. I could have at home and saved my money. I side why it's pretty empty in there unless it's a game day or party time....never again.....way better friendly places here. Chicago Reader got it way wrong....

  • That's too bad @eml1900 I've always had good service there. Cork is my fav food wise, However, Turtles is my fav to hang out b4 & after games.
