The Experience: Elly’s is a small chain, now open in five locations, mostly promoting itself as a breakfast joint. They claim to have amazing pancakes, waffles and omelettes, but a look at their self-description also shows some pride in their burgers. I love a supposedly-good-but-not-well-known burger, so I gave Elly’s a try.
Burger Ordered: Bacon Cheeseburger
The Verdict: Elly’s is a great joint, with a great tasting, thick, and filling hamburger. Get over your qualms and dig in.
Elly’s Pancake House is located at 101 W North Avenue in Chicago, Illinois and at four other locations in the Chicagoland area.
