Nookies is a Chicago diner staple (the Old Town location as been around since 1973) for a casual breakfast, lunch, or dinner. This place has a lengthy menu that rivals the Cheesecake Factory’s, so you can eat everything from eggs and potatoes to meatloaf, and every location except the one in Edgewater is BYOB. That said, we prefer Nookies for brunch - and we particularly like the crunchy French toast, battered and fried in corn flakes.
