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.

Customer Reviews

Very much enjoyed the meal and the service. Will come back.

Great service, and friendly. Hashbrowns appeared to be nicely done, but carried a bit too much oil. Pancakes are beautiful to behold and have a marvelous, sweet flavor, but mine was a bit 'doughy' (undercooked?). Coffee is terrific. Thanks very much

Absolutely delicious! And don't forget to bring some champagne for mimosas!
