Alfie's Inn draws on more than 40 years of barbecue know-how to craft a kingdom-sized menu of fire-kissed eats, served in a medieval-themed restaurant. Summon a knightly burger, such as Sir Alfie's cheeseburger, a sizzling pile of lean sirloin chuck molded into a half-pound patty ($7.25), that can battle hunger alongside a deep-fried-onion-ring basket ($3.25 for half; $4.95 for full) for a savory duo whose deeds are told of in elaborate tapestries woven by french fries and ketchup. Other kingly meals include choice 7 ounces of prime, charbroiled butt steak ($11.50), Alfie's seafood basket of jumbo breaded shrimp and codfish fillets ($10.25), and the bold Sir Reuben on rye ($8.25). While dining on Dark Ages grub, patrons can bask in the sun and eat on Alfie's patio or sit in front of a cozy fireplace telling stories the way the knights of legend used to: while eating cheeseburgers.

Alfie's Inn

Alfie's Inn takes its name from the 1966 film in which Michael Caine plays a carefree playboy. In contrast to this flippant character, the chefs at Alfie’s Inn work with military precision, particularly when it comes to their signature burger. After whipping up a top-secret in-house seasoning, they grind burger meat and treat it for precisely one minute and 10 seconds—any longer and patties become mushy; any shorter and they toughen. Fried and mounded with grilled onions or blue-cheese crumbles, the end result is an epic burger that has earned praise on WGN’s Chicago’s Best.

Though known for its burger, the eatery also boasts impressively sized portions of baby back ribs, new york strip steaks, and surf ‘n’ turf dishes. Diners feast on meals amid the restaurant’s medieval decor, complete with suits of armor and a roaring indoor fireplace. Kids also walk away bearing trinkets including balloons, lollipops, and a little Magna Carta that emancipates them from their parents.


For all burger lovers, this place has their burger basket down pat.

The ribs are the best ever -- the burgers are absolutely wonderful.

  • “Alfie's sirloin butt steak is good, but Outback's is better for about the same price and you get a salad, not Alfie's little plastic cup of coleslaw.”

  • “Great food at good prices.”

  • “Friendly, nice atmosphere and very good food ”
