Reliable corner diner in Ravenswood.
Everyone should live around the corner from a diner, especially one as reliable as the Golden Nugget on Lawrence. The service is always quick and cheerful; the food always cheap and ridiculously substantial. Breakfast, served 24 hours, encompasses everything from chicken-fried steak with two eggs to the all-fruit waffle, each quadrant of which bears a different oozy-sweet compote (apple, blueberry, strawberry, and banana). The lunch and dinner choices include the Grubsteaker--ground sirloin smothered with mushrooms, bacon, an onion ring, and melted cheese--and a few diner standards of yore such as liver and onions. Other locations of this local chain are at 2720 N. Clark, 2406 W. Diversey, and 3953 W. Diversey.
