Ditka's Restaurant - OakBrook Terrace, IL Restaurant Review

Chicago Food King

Ditka’s in Oakbrook Terrace is one of my favorite places to go for dinner or lunch. It has a great relaxed vibe that teeters between upscale and casual. It’s a great place to eat because you can show up dressed to the nines or in casual attire and feel comfortable either way.

The service is always consistent and attentive. They have a complimentary valet, which is nice if you are unable to find parking in the parking lot.

They have some real stand-out items in their menu that appeal to everyone’s taste buds. The pot roast nachos and their Fridge burger are two of my favorite entrees. They both are fantastic and have reasonable portions for the price.

I also am a big fan of their steaks. They are always cooked perfectly and to my liking each time. They usually have good daily specials on filets or seafood.

On my most recent visit, I ordered their fried chicken dinner with mashed potatoes and coleslaw with hot honey on the side. This entree was delicious, perfectly juicy, and the breading had a nice crunch. The only complaint I had was the coleslaw was a bit on the dry side.

My wife ordered the special of the day which consisted of two 4 ounce filets and a lobster tail with green beans and potatoes for $50. I felt it was a very good deal for the amount of food. Everything was delicious and cooked to her liking.

The restaurant gets very busy on the weekends, so I would suggest making a reservation ahead of time. If you choose to sit in the bar, it is very nice with ample seating and plenty of sit-down tables to enjoy your meal.

Ditka’s will always be a Chicago favorite from the service to the quality of their food. I will definitely be returning and I give the restaurant a rating of 8 out of 10.
