Without cheese, sandwich meat would get lonely and rappers would use the term "fungible retainer of value" as an epithet for the word "money." Put your money where your mouth is with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of cheeseburgers, hot dogs, and other classic Chicago fast fare at Eden's The Original.
An encyclopedic menu snares appetites in a savory web of sandwiches, gyros, and breakfast bites at Eden's The Original. Swiss cheese, bacon, mushrooms, and grilled onions spill over the all-beef patty at the hefty heart of the Eden's burger ($5.95). Not to be outdone, pure beef Vienna dogs parade over the counter in jumbo, corn, and chili-cheese varieties ($2.35–$3.35) like identical triplets trying to set themselves apart.
Steaming cups of house-made chili ($2.30) flood bellies with warmth, preparing them for encounters with Eden's zesty specialty gyros platter ($7.45). Grill masters hash out a.m. grub hearty enough to fuel bodies all day, such as a special of three extra-large eggs with yolks pulverized to patrons' specifications, meat, and hash browns ($5.45). A cheery yellow vintage sign beckons diners to enter Eden's sleek, freestanding storefront on a block of Cicero Avenue zoned especially for high-density carnivore development.
Eden's the Original
Each day, the cooks at Eden’s the Original fire up grills in preparation for the breakfast rush before the sun has risen over the Chicago skyline. Some fold blueberries and strawberries into buttermilk pancakes, and others sizzle up sausage, bacon, and eggs. Come lunchtime, they turn their attention to pure-beef burgers, meaty sandwiches, and subs, and shower plump Vienna dogs in chili, cheese, and onions. The dinner menu’s goods include deep-fried perch, barbecue ribs, and chicken alongside mountains of fries and slices of garlic bread.
The restaurant’s casual setting hosts feasting, but guests can opt for delivery to enjoy meals at home or at that fancy furniture store they sometimes pretend is home.
You can't go wrong with pretty much anything on the menu, but I usually got the grilled chicken sandwich on a pita with hot peppers. Seriously amazingStephen J., Yelp, 12/3/11
The fries were fresh and the staff was friendly. It is a family owned restaurant- and you can tell.Katie S., Yelp, 4/25/11
