R.J. Grunts

The First Lettuce Creation

The very first Lettuce Entertain You restaurant, R.J. Grunts still exudes the funky, devil-may-care lifestyle of the 70s in its style, décor, music and all-American menu. Happily for all of us, the best eating of that day continues to be some of the best today, with "the world's first salad bar", the best burgers in town and giant hand-scooped milkshakes (booze optional). Located in the heart of Lincoln Park, R.J. Grunts continues to be a favorite among families and Chicago natives.
