Ditka's - Chicago
Ditka's Restaurant, located in the heart of Chicago's Gold Coast between Rush & Michigan, is a Chicago Landmark. Ditka's has a decidedly understated sports motif, white linen table clothes, hardwood floors, intimate leather booths & rich mahogany wood accents. Chef Tom Kenny presides over the menu with passion & expertise. Known for Chops & Steaks including the signature dish Da Pork Chop along with a wide variety of fresh, sustainable seafood and contemporary American classics. The lunch menu is full of wonderful fresh salads & sandwiches including the Best Burger in Chicago , the Fridge Burger. Service is approachable & friendly in a comfortable atmosphere. Don't be surprised to catch sight of Da Coach himself.
I've been to many top rated steak houses and Ditka's has my favorite steak. The Kick Ass Paddle Steak is consistently the tastiest steak. I use the bone in ribeye as my barometer to gauge steaks by and have not found any better than Mike's
Oh So So Delicious!! I can't wait to go back. The wasabi crusted salmon was absolutely to die for. My husband had the pork chop and he said it was the best he's ever eaten! We had key lime pie for dessert, and although it was $10, it was well worth it! The service was great and so was the whole ambiance. We loved it! I'd have to say, it was one of the best meals I've ever eaten! Highly reccommended!
I'm a light eater, but I had to finish my sandwich & fries...it was so delicious. My husband even said he's never seem me eat so much food!
The wait staff was probably the friendliest that we have ever experienced, and that's saying a lot when you consider that it was in Chicago!
I will definitely go back there on our next visit
I have been to Ditka's three times. The food is spectacular, but I personally like the creme brulee. I had never tried it before and I tried it for the first time at Ditka's. Even a couple of times after that I had it at a different restaurant and it tasted nothing like it.
The cute thing about Ditka's is that the plates have an illustration of Mike's head on it. There's even a little shop inside where you can but memorabilia. I really enjoyed eating there and the next time I go, I will sit outside.
Be sure to go in with a big appetite because you receive big portions.
