Interior of RJ Grunts

The Original Lettuce Entertain You Creation

R.J. Grunts is the original Lettuce Entertain You creation, located in the heart of Lincoln Park just steps from the zoo. We cater to the neurotic compensation of eating with our all-American menu that includes the world’s first salad bar and the tastiest burgers in town. That funky lifestyle of the ’70s is still exuded in our style, décor and music.
