    Mrs Sweet Willie & I have been going to Katie's Kitchen since it first opened, it is located in the space formally occupied by David's Bistro. (sorry if Katie's has been posted before, I did a couple searches & couldn't find anything)

    There are two things I almost always get at Katies.

    1) Huevos Rancheros - not huevos rancheros like I've normally had, here it is a toasted English muffin topped with marinated skirt steak, avocado, two poached eggs and ranchero sauce, baked with cheddar cheese.

    2) Chicken Fried Steak - I've only seen this as a special now & then.

    Katie's version of Huevos Rancheros used to be only a special they'd run now & then. I would physically get depressed when we showed up and it wasn't on the specials, so I'd always ask "when are you guys going to put this on the menu as a regular item??!!" I'm guessing I wasn't the only one asking as it is now on the menu. The is hands down is one of the most delicious breakfast entrees I've ever had. Do we have a "best breakfast entree in Chicagoland" thread on LTH? If so, I'd throw full support for this dish to be included in it.

    The chicken fried steak when offered has a terrific crisp breading w/great texture coveing a good slice of meat. An excellent rendition for sure.

    Get there early as the post church crowd really fills up the place.

    I always forget to post on the rare occasions I go here, but they're our go-to for a rare brunch out (breakfast is the meal we're least likely to eat at a restaurant).

    Note that at one point they'd expanded their dinner hours to Thursday too... but now they only offer breakfast and lunch.

    Went in with regular expectations. Loved it for breakfast. Great corned beef hash, friendly staff - they do pancakes in the shape of the letter of your kid's first name, with sprinkles. Really decent prices. Came back for the holidays to do the breakfast with Santa.

    Really nice place. Glad to have it close.
