A hot summer in Chicago... and the Erie Cafe is running the heater, just to make the smoke-filled restaurant a bit more nauseating. The wanna-be classy place is extremely over priced, with the food comparable to McDonald's quality.
The menu is very basic, with vague descriptions. Don't turn to the staff to explain any items on the menu -- few understand English.
If you're thirsty, avoid this place. Sodas come in 6 oz bottles at nearly $6 each.
