Hacney's Printers Row. I really enjoy Hackney's at Printers Row. Friendly atmosphere, extensive beer list (although I am not an expert personally). Food is very good and plenty of it for the price. Feel very much at home there.
Not So Great-Take A Pass.
It has great outdoor seating in the summer, but the food is unorginal and definitely not very good for you. The onion loaf is tasty but a heart attack on a plate! The burgers are okay but nothing to write home about. Basic Fare-

Very nice restaurant in Downtown Chicago. We have been to Hackney's before, so this is not a one time only review of the place. It is a great place to go to eat. It is a little crowded in the dinning room because of all the tables they have in there. And that's because alot of people eat there. So except to bump elbows and other body parts with other dinners and or the wait staff. Hey..it ain't no problem thou. The selection of beers and ales is wonderful. They match all the food Hackney's serve. OK the food. Since we have eaten there at least 5 times before, we were expecting one of those juicy large tasty burgers. Well the meat was not so moist, it was medium cooked w/ pink in the middle. And the flavor was off, not what we remembered of past times we ate there. The other people at the table thought the meat was "mushy" with an "odd consistency" more "chopped and formed" then "real burger ground meat". The fries, as always, were great. The clam chowder soup was right on, mouth watering. Get a bowl because their soups are great too. Now expect to pay more for your food then a chain or some 'greasy spoon' joint, but it is still alittle costly for our pocketbook to go on a more regular schedule. So will we come back to eat, from our usual one month absents? Probably so. Because Hackney's is a great place with a good selection of delicious food. Leave your car at home and take the bus which drops you off right in front of Hackney's.
I've got to get back for the Patty Melt & Onion loaf.
I took some out of towner customers there last week rather than a stuffy overpriced steak joint. Well, It turned out to be a good decision as we all had a great meal & the atmosphere was super friendly, which my customers loved. My only regret was that while I was talking my head off all night, I didn't get to enjoy one heck of a patty melt. It was awesome! I can't wait to get back there so I can take my sweet time, swill a few pints & enjoy every bite.
I would definitely recommend this place! Ziggy Zoggy, Cheers
Comfortable local Pub. Although they are well known for their burgers, the daily specials are actually a better value, especially the pasta dishes when they are available. Comfortable atmosphere, outdoor dining, great beer list and friendly staff.
Great burgers!. We went there for the first time with empty stomach. The portion of the food is just right. We got this coupon for a free appertizer with dinner entree so we ordered the fried onion. They were GREAT! However, I didn't like dressing for my ceasar salad. The burgers were sooo great though. The food were fast even if the place was crowded.
Good food, Cramped quarters. My boyfriend and I ate lunch at the Printer's Row location. We ordered the onion ring appetizer and it was HUGE! We both got sandwiches, which were excellent. The only down side was the cramped tables. You didn't have much room, and because you were so close to everyone, it was kind of loud. I would definitley go back and maybe sit outside.
Longtime burger favorite serves up sandwiches in a comfortable, casual atmosphere..
A staple in the suburbs since 1939, Hackney's South Loop location is a long lounge that fills up with an after-work crowd on weekdays and local loft dwellers on weekends. Starters include deep-fried Spanish onion loaf and kettle chips topped with blue cheese. Big, meaty burgers are tucked into a bun or dark rye bread, then topped with American, Swiss, cheddar or blue cheese. Other options include butt steak, ribs and chicken plates.
RYE oh RYE.
Have the Hackney Burger on the traditional rye bread or don't have it at all. Ketchup? So wrong. Mustard and the raw onion. Have the bread toasted, great touch.
The Big Cookie dessert is not something you want to miss.
Have a Guiness, it's good for you!
late night spot. I went with a group of friends for dinner before the Paul McCartney concert and then went for a night cap afterwards. Great food and really nice people.
