The very first Lettuce Entertain You restaurant, R.J. Grunts still exudes the funky, devil-may-care lifestyle of the 70s in its style, décor, music and all-American menu. Happily for all of us, the best eating of that day continues to be some of the best today with the best burgers in town and giant hand-scooped milkshakes (booze optional). Located in the heart of Lincoln Park, R.J. Grunts continues to be a favorite among families and Chicago natives.
