Thomas' RestaurantCalumet Heights
Featuring a large selection of breakfast, lunch and dinner dishes, Thomas' is the prototypical American diner updated for the 1990s. Along with a variety of steak and burger plates, the diner offers nearly a dozen salad dishes, including some low-fat offers. But if you're going to be disciplined enough to order a salad, you might as well treat yourself to one of the delicious milkshakes. The spacious diner is located in the midst of a thriving commercial district. Thomas' attracts customers from across the South Side, but is rarely packed. For good inexpensive food served in a laid back manner, it is hard to beat this place.
