Here are two traditions in one place. Lindy's offers its famous chili as it has since 1924, and Gertie's scoops ice creams as it has since 1901. The combination creates a perfect family restaurant close to beautiful McKinley Park--therefore, it's a popular place to visit on the weekends. The atmosphere is friendly and casual. Perfect to enjoy a bowl of chili, spaghetti and chili, taco salad, or the Chili Tamales Extravaganza. Besides the chili, Lindy's offers appetizers, sandwiches, burgers and Polish sausages. Gertie's is a paradise for those who love sundaes, banana splits and milkshakes.
