The notorious Ed Debevic’s was opened in 1984, and has been renowned as Chicago’s most famous retro themed diner ever since. Famously known for its snarky service & 1950s throwback decor, Ed’s quickly became a fun & unique staple in the culinary world. If you’re looking for a traditional dining experience, you’ve gotten yourself into a boatload of trouble. Quirky servers in flashy costumes serve up great burgers, hot dogs, cheese fries, huge salads, milkshakes, and ice cream sundaes – all delivered to your glittery booth with a side order of sass.

Don’t expect this diner to be a “Please” and “Thank You” kind of place, or you might just get your feelings hurt! The servers are encouraged to create characters – ranging from jocks, to beauty school dropouts, to greasers, to nerds – and are even known to drop their trays and break into choreographed dance numbers on top of the soda counters!

Now offering $20 Bottomless Mimosas every Friday & Saturday and All Day Breakfast 7 days a week!
