What You'll Get

At night, sleeping stomachs dream vividly of devouring super-sized sandwiches and accidentally showing up to Thanksgiving naked. Wake up your stomach with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of sandwiches, burgers, brunch, and more at The Uptowner Café in Lincoln Park.

Recently claiming its Chicago citizenship on bustling Lincoln Avenue, The Uptowner's capable kitchen reigns over rich egg dishes and luscious lunchtime menu items to satisfy hunger habitués day and night. The eponymous Uptowner club comprises nutritious selections from the entire USDA meat pyramid, including the turkey, ham, and bacon groups, all helmed by a hearty helping of cheddar and swiss cheeses dressed in a chipotle mayonnaise ($8.25). Crispy sourdough bread gently sandwiches the chicken cordon bleu, a tender chicken breast draped in ham, swiss cheese, and sautéed mushrooms ($7.95). An array of malts ($3.95) and kids' items ($4.50) sate youthful spirits and backward-aging celebrities alike.

Though The Uptowner serves its last selection in the mid-afternoon Monday to Sunday, Thursdays through Saturdays salute the midnight sun by reopening from 10 p.m. to at least 3 a.m. A bundle of breakfast items—such as the tempting Tex-Mex, which wraps eggs, hash browns, sausage, cheese, and sour cream in a flour tortilla topped with salsa ($7.95)—mollify cranky mornings and give gratifying endings to late-night knitting marathons. Classic diner décor complements the all-American menu with red-hued booths, Chicago-themed wall art, and tables for two, making sitting down an enjoyable possibility.
