Until several years ago, I had lived my entire life within 3 miles of this place, in one direction or another. I still work near it. I never bothered to try it, until yesterday. Greek chicken with rice. Wow. Delicious. Juicy. Flavorful. $7.50 gets you enough food for almost three people. I love these Greek places; they always have one amazing dish buried in their menu of hot dogs and gyros.
I have been here for more than at least 15 times their Greek chicken is hands-down the best I've ever had you could have that with fries and salad or a side of rice which is both a good choice
Last year while driving down Roosevelt Road I visited a place called Pete's in Oak Park. While I'm unsure if these two places are at all related, I've passed by a place called Pete's 2 in Broadview many times and only recently took the time to stop in and give the food a try. So while there is no "Artie the Strongest Man in the World" or "Mr. Tastee" in reviewing these two hot dog stands you're about to hear about "The Adventures of Pete and Pete". The first thing I noticed upon entering Pete's is the design of the inside. I get the sense that this place was at one point a Brown's Chicken and Pasta. After carefully considering my dining options I decided to go for a hot dog and fries combo, the question is how was it? The hot dog I received came on a soft poppy seed bun, there was a slice of tomato on top. A fairly thick pickle slice, nicely sliced onions, and a bit too much relish and mustard. The sausage used here was skinless and well heated, there were no sport peppers or celery salt on this dog. The first bite right away was tasty, but the hot dog was a bit on the soggy side, the juice from the thick pickle spear, excessive relish and mustard made it a bit on the wet side. The overall taste and combination of flavors was excellent. It also came with some french fries, these were thick and long steak style fries. They weren't too salty, and the potato paste inside was tasty. Overall I was pretty happy with these fries as they are a nice compliment to the hot dog. My overall opinion of Pete's 2 is that they make a good hot dog and fries. I think I like this place a wee bit more than the "Pete's" in Oak Park. Overall I'd say this is a well above average hot dog stand and am going to award them four stars.

My husband and I went here today. My husband had the" Da Itis" and I had the Meat Omelets Turkey Bacon.The food were delicious.The cafe is very beautiful and the servicer was helpful,very friendly the prices are very reasonable, and the portions are large for your $$. The owner Cheryl came out and she was very nice I would recommend if your in the Broadview area to stop by and have a breakfast or lunch at The Corner Spot Cafe. My husband and I will certainly come back since we live 4 blocks away from the corner spot cafe.
Saw this place had good reviews and was passing by. Nice atmosphere and easy listening music but I don't think the service could be any slower. Place has been open a year and it looks like they just moved in. I ordered an omelette and it smelled like mildew and the biscuit was rock hard. My friends food only had half the ingredients she ordered. Don't want to bash it too hard but it was really just unacceptable.
Had breakfast there this morning. The food and service was amazing. This is a great neighborhood restaurant. You won't be disappointed

Sawa’s Old Warsaw Restaurant

Reviews:
I love this restaurant just for the giant neon sign out front and the awesome timeless decor of pink and purple facade and white table clothes. I haven't been here since I was a kid, maybe 30 years ago or so. This past Thursday I was lucky enough to have the opportunity to go back and enjoy the "Smorgasbord". The service was great and the price was perfect at about $10 per person. The only downside was the food was just not up to par. There are a few items that are palatable, but the majority of items on the buffet are just not good. Don't let that stop you though because this is a great place and you must experience the decor of this place. Na zdrowie. Vivat!
Solid traditional Polish food, good prices. Broasted chicken, golumpki, potato cakes, pierogi excellent!!
Great old building. Nothing changes over the years. Good old school, great food and you will not leave hungary. Love going here.

Came here for breakfast for the first time. Although we were seated right away (as there were plenty of empty seats) it took a long time for our order to be taken and an even longer time to finally be served. Sorry to be mean but I think we must have had the oldest waitress in the world waiting on us. We had to remind her three times about bringing drinks even though our food had already been served. Portions were large but my Spanish omelet was the worst I ever had. After three forkfuls, I left the rest of my entire meal on the plate. My waitress asked if I wanted them to cook another one for me (ugh)!!!! My granddaughter did like her strawberry pancakes and my grandson wolfed down his peach pancakes. My daughter had the country skillet which she said was mediocre. I wasn't charged for the omelet and we had to inform the waitress that we never got the bill (she thought she had already given us and had to go look for it). The staff is polite but I will not return as taste, service, expediency and atmosphere is important to me.
Being having breakfast/lunch here since 1985. The meals never disappoint. One of those great neighborhood restaurants. Service a little on grouchy side from a few old timers. By far the Jackie special is my favorite. Daily specials are great priced for quality and amount. Weekends of course are very busy.
Great for a quick bite and you can sit down. It's good to have sit down restaurant in the area.

I go here for lunch, it is very close to my job. The food is very good surprisingly but the place is a complete dump. Dirty looking, ugly, cold just pretty nasty it actually makes me not want to eat their food but it is what it is. The woman that works there is a total a-hole. I ordered chicken fried once and they got it wrong I called them back to complain and ask for the correct order she argued with me on the phone for about 10 minutes and refused to correct the issue, major points lost.
I love this place the staff was nice to me the food is great plenty of seating and the food is great my favorite is their smoothies.
There food is awesome here. Healthy, clean and best price. The new owner is so friendly

Uncle Remus Usa

Reviews:
What can I say, this chicken spot is really good. I think there is crack in the sauce, because I absolutely love the sauce they place on the chicken and dinner rolls. I have eaten from this spot on 3 different occasions, and I am never disappointed.
Not like the old days, this chicken place has gone downhill. They cant see the decline in customers due to the outrageous prices, service, and quality of chicken being served now. On this strip of Roosevelt road, there are three other chicken joints that are priced better. This establishment needs to really think before they will be force to close their doors. One star rating is really generous.......
Hello get a clue, I went to Uncle Remus last month and ordered there pan special. What I received was chicken that looked like it came from a Cornish hen and sauce that was barely drizzled over my chicken like it was chocolate syrup on a Sunday. I know that I come here for the sauce so it would be great to actually get some. Please stop skimping on the food and customer service.

I love this pizza!!!! One of my favorites, great veggie pizza!
The pizza is okay if you keep it simple. You can't go wrong with the basics like sausage or pepperoni. I wouldn't get too exotic. I would say the one downside is the customer service. Some of the employees are really ghetto. I once observed an employee arguing with a customer. You would have thought they were on a street corner in Inglewood. Furthermore, when they deliver your pizza they call you from the car when they are sitting in front of your house or a round the corner. Maybe it's a cultural thing. I wish they would just call when they are at the door with the pizza, or better yet just walk up and ring the freaking doorbell. Also don't be surprised when your delivery guy rolls up with other people in the car. They make me scared to open the door.
They get the GAS FACEEEEE! bluuhhhhhhhhh....!! I ordered from them cuz i moved to the area. Yoooo...i ordered mushrooms on my pizza right...tell me why they put canned mushrooms on my pizza tho. I was like HELLLL NAWWWWWW.....not ordering from there again.

Checker’s

1617 W Roosevelt Rd
Broadview, 60155
Reviews:
Drove past this Checkers many times on the way to hockey games. Finally got the chance to stop and have a burger and fries. The food here is defiantly better then most fast food places. The burger had great flavor and the fries are quite good. Only complaint is no indoor seating. Chicago weather usually isn't conducive to eating outside. Wish we had more of these in the area. Much better then Mcpains or burger sling.
The food at Checker's is always amazing but you go to the hood to get it and therefore you receive hood service. I'm talking a drive - thru clerk who will interrupt you with a "anything else?" before you even finish. I'm talking a "please pull around, we'll bring you your food in 20 minutes, and it will be wrong". Granted, they always correct the order, and the food is served hot. I think if they practiced more patience and accuracy at the drive-thru everything else would fall in line. I give 5 stars for the food and 2 stars for service.
The only reason why I'm giving this 4 stars is because of the fries. There is NO GREATER TRUTH THAN CHECKER'S FRIES! I also got an order of the grilled cheese sticks. BIG MISTAKE! I'm pretty good about finishing everything on my plate and not throwing away food, but those were impossible to eat. No lie, they aren't frying their foods in any great quality oil, and you can taste the very low grade oil on the food. Maybe it's because their fries are seasoned to perfection that oil-taste doesn't hit your palate as much with their fries. So yeah, go here for the fries but not for your other fast food needs.

Starbucks

Reviews:
Every time I order from this Starbucks, my drinks always turn out absolutely horrible tasting. I don't know why I return. They make the drinks so sweet - it literally gave me the worst headache. I always end up throwing my drink away, not even touching it. I waste my money and my time driving out of my way to go there. I never have this problem with Chicago Starbucks.
Terrible service. I waited 20 minutes to be served a soupy Frappuccino. The barista spent that time yelling at employees and complaining to customers about how busy the were. They seemed to get the cars through the drive-up just fine, but I guess it was ok somehow to make the inside customers wait 20 minutes.
Love my Starbucks, but not from this location. Always a 10-15 minute wait, even on a simple cup of coffee. I know they have to make drinks in the order the come in, but orders from inside and the drive thru should be separated in terms of order.
