Hackney's Original French Fried Onions® (Recommended)
We invented this delicious "Brick". It's one of our claims to fame!
Had a very good dinner at always reliable Hackney's. Great onions & sandwiches. Had an interesting cocktail called "Not a Kiddie Cocktail". Either the soda was flat or they forgot to add it. The flavor was good but nothing special.
It was good as always. Only disappointment was the onion loaf. It was definitely too crispy, almost to the point of being burnt. The fries and burgers were great as well as the service.
Overall very good. Two burgers came a lot more well done than expected.
We ate outside on a beautiful July 4th. Our waiter was nice and attentive until we got our food. Then he disappeared. We sat there for 30 min after we ate the meal and nobody could find him. We called the manager over and he gave us two Lepracon pies, which was chocolate mint/choc ice cream in oreo crust- delicious! We never did see our waiter again. The manager said maybe he got pulled to inside of the restaurant. Overall, pleasant night.
I always enjoy eating outdoors at the Hackney's restaurant on Lake Street in Wilmette.
Last night the temperature was moderate, and eating outdoors was a very enjoyable
experience. My Cheese Quesadillas were very good. I also ordered French fries.
I have always really liked Hackney's French fries.
I have enjoyed the Hackney's experience for many decades, and will expect to enjoy
this for many years to come.
The soft drinks were not good. We sent them back. Good was good
Family reminiscent gathering
We had to wait 30 minutes after our reservation. Everyone had reservations. They should eliminate reservations if they can not accommodate them
Great burgers, great o ion ring loaf and great service was well worth the 30 mile drive
We had a wonderful meal and an outstaning server, Oscar, who made the evening wonderful for us.
We were stuck in traffic on our way home to Wisconsin from the Shedd Aquarium so we decided to stop for dinner. LOVED that we were able to make a reservation as we had 3 kids with us and it was a Friday night. Food and service were very good, great kids menu and they had a game room. Decor was that of an old supper club so I would not call it modern, but it was perfect for us.
Although Hackney's can usually be relied on for service and food quality, our food was brought out undercooked and at near room temperature. I had a black-bean burger that was mushy and barely cooked. My partner had a Hackney burger, medium-well that was predominantly pink on the inside. In addition, they brought out my burger on a bun although I had ordered the dark rye. The fries were good though. I suspect there are growing pains as they get back to more full service after the pandemic shutdowns.
The food was awful. Burger had no taste. The burger was suppose to be served on black bread and it came on a bun. All 4 of our meals were tasteless.
What a disaster! We actually never ate because we walked out. Despite reservations, long wait at host station with no one insight. Finally someone literally pointed to a table without speaking. After 20 minutes, no waiter and menus. Another table walked out with us. No one around to even complain to.
We had family dinner & it was exactly what we needed.
Suspect suffering from decreased business. Not great.
Always have a great meal and great service. Last time we all ordered turkey burgers and the meat was spoiled and sour. The server was nice and reordered different items but took forever and no apologies. Not their usual style but post pandemic...we shall see
I love hackneys they never fail to give me a great burger. Love this place
We have been dining at Hackneys on Lake for a long time. We always find the service to be attentive, but not pushy. We have tasted many of the menu offerings and like most. We do, however, tend to reorder the same things - - menu items that have become favorites. Hackney's prices are moderate and a good value.
Great place! We are regulars!
Good food and service! Great place to eat. Highly recommend!
All terrific. They could not be more friendly and accommodating
Dark, dated location. Vinyl seats in booths deteriorated. Server was indifferent, to say the least. I ordered the special salad of the day (spinach) and couldn't even eat it. Terrible dressing and looked like it was just thrown on the plate. Server cleared my plate and didn't ask if it was okay. My daughter was with me and a friend of hers, so I didn't want to say anything to embarrass her. As if that wasn't bad enough, they both ordered desserts. The milkshake was beautifully presented but the Key Lime pie looked like gloop. Or like it fell on the floor and was served anyway! I couldn't believe my eyes! I'm attaching a photo of the pie, as it was served. We did not touch or change it.
Bottom line, I'm very sorry & embarrassed that I recommended meeting there. Never going back.
Hi Diane, thanks for taking the time to let us know about the issues you experienced. We can assure you that any time you are dissatisfied with your order, we will correct it. Your pie certainly should not have gone out that way and well talk with your server to ensure they meet our higher quality of plating standards.
This is a Chicago institution- dependable hamburgers- the great dark bread and the fried onion brick.
The drinks are full and generous. My dirty Martini was just right.
The service is excellent- fast and forthcoming.
I went twice while there.
I've been going to Hackney's for years. You can't go wrong with the onion loaf and the burgers were tasty just like I remember them.
The prices at Hackneys have gone up significantly. $7.00 for a side salad or a cup of soup is too expensive.
