I was in Hyde Park at the University of Chicago for an event this evening and was looking for a place to eat...I really didn't feel like having Italian (i.e. Giordano's or Leona's both of which are in the area) and I was looking for a place close to the Border's in the area. Lo and behold I found Valois Cafeteria which looked cozy enough.
I parked and went in and decided upon a Roast Beef special....for $5.75 I got a couple generous slices of roast beef along with mashed potato and a choice of vegetable (I had corn on the cob) along with 2 big pieces of cornbread....YUM!! it was very good and satisfied my appetite. With a cup of coffee it came to $7.20 but was well worth it....if ever in the area I am definitely going to go to this place again.
