Welcome to the world of Ed Debevic's, Chicago's famous retro themed diner where your jumbo burgers & milkshakes are served with a heaping side of sass!
The notorious Ed Debevic’s was opened in 1984, and has been renowned as Chicago’s most famous retro themed diner ever since. Famously known for its snarky service & 1950s throwback decor, Ed’s quickly became a fun & unique staple in the culinary world. If you’re looking for a traditional dining experience, you’ve gotten yourself into a boatload of trouble. Quirky servers in flashy costumes serve up great burgers, hot dogs, cheese fries, huge salads, milkshakes, and ice cream sundaes – all delivered to your glittery booth with a side order of sass.
Don’t expect this diner to be a “Please” and “Thank You” kind of place, or you might just get your feelings hurt! The servers are encouraged to create characters – ranging from jocks, to beauty school dropouts, to greasers, to nerds – and are even known to drop their trays and break into choreographed dance numbers on top of the soda counters!
