    Since I have been going there about 10-11 Years. I remember at first I thought to myself Boy I hope she has more than one. Became obvious that it is almost like a Uniform /trademark 8) Love this family and their business not to mention their food!

    A word of caution with the weather turning colder and eating El Trunko isn't a good option. This place is on the small side and only has three 4-top tables and one 2-top so you may be dining across from a stranger (which is not a big deal to many people). Personally when I go back, I am not going during the lunch rush to make sure I can sit somewhere. On my recent first visit all the tables were full, but a couple were finishing up literally the moment I got my food.

    Last I was at Mr. D's, Tuesday, tables were full with one fellow at a 4-top. I politely asked if I could sit with him, he said sure, of course. At which point Mr. D said he comes almost every day and someone new sits with him. Friendly fellow, we both lingered longer than intended, his conversation and company made lunch even more enjoyable.

    Son of D's brought out an order of nicely crisp fries for us to split, after our lunches were long gone, to munch on while we chatted.

    Mr. D's, count me a Fan!

    Was at Mr. D's last Friday, no tables, a gentleman who was at a four top alone waved us over and invited us to join him. So cool. We had driven out from the city, this guy was doing a side job nearby and headed to his 2-10 shift in Morton Grove so he ordered a cheeseburger to take for his "lunch" at 6! We had a great chat which made the cuisine all that much more enjoyable.

    El Trunko is nice. But nothing wrong sitting in your car with the heater (or A/C) and the radio playing.

    I wouldn't let lack of seating ever enter into the decision process. Now, lack of parking, that's another story :D

    Went back for the first time in a while, I love this place. Parking has gotten kind of tricky, with better luck on Diversey than in the neighborhood. I think the signs/zoning have changed.

    The same exact thing happened to me about a year ago right down to the free order of fries, only difference was that Mike brought them over. The really nice guy I was sharing the table with said "you must come here a lot too"

    Walked in to Mr. D's today straight-up noon with a buddy, busy as a paper glider making monkey at the Oshkosh EAA airshow. Friendly happy line went fast, 94% were take-away and we had no trouble getting a table.

    Tip-top steak sandwiches, crisp fries, punchy giardiniera, Mrs. D wearing a light green shirt. All right with the world.

    Actually, no. Not until you mentioned this.
    But it must be accurate, judging by this one photograph (from 18 September). Image
