THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Ditka's Restaurant Review

: Mike Ditka returned to town in the form of an eponymous restaurant that scores big with locals and tourists alike. And, yes, lots of cronies drop by hoping that “Da Coach” is around (an unlikely event). The place is nicely quiet at lunch, but expect a dull roar at dinner. We favor certain dishes: pot roast nachos, Rhode Island-style fried calamari, Italian wedding soup, barbecue ribs and sustainable seafood. We also recommend the “Fridge” hamburger and signature chop. There is a certain swagger to the place, but it all works. Also located at Two Mid America Plaza, Oakbrook Terrace, 630-572-2200.
