THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Iron Mike's Grille Restaurant Review

: Chicagoans know that Iron Mike is former Bears coach, Mike Ditka. That explains not only the size of the restaurant (upstairs, downstairs, all around the house), but also the unabashed energy here. Many of what appears to be Ditka’s favorite foods are on the menu (pork chops, for example), along with steaks, chicken, pasta, salads and burgers (voted best hamburger in Chicago). The prices end in numbers that hold some particular significance in the years that Ditka was heading up the Bears ($.20 ending on dishes to let us know that it was Super Bowl XX that Ditka and the Bears won). TVs abound in the two bars, and there’s a logo-merchandise shop. This place is a good time overall, and the food is a lot better than one might imagine. Don’t miss the duck cigar.
