The Weber Grill Restaurant, Chicago, IL.

On the first night in Chicago, we visited the Weber Grill - I had wanted to try this place, but this was unplanned - we were hungry and walking and just happened upon the place.

Weber, of course, make barbecue grills - I own a charcoal one, so I though it a good idea to chick out how they do it right and in large quantities. I was impressed!

We started out at the bar - the kids could not sit right up there - no problems.. they stood with us (another story about that coming up) - good service - nice Goose Island beer and stuff.

The service here was great - our server was knowledgeable, friendly, well prepared with all the knowledge we needed, (also whispered to us about the inclusion of desert with the kids meals - nice touch - let us decide if the kids get desert).

And the food - granted we were hungry - I had beer can chicken - because I never had that before - and it was delicious!! She had grilled garlic shrimp skewers - succulent, properly cooked and also delicious. The whole lot was great!! The kids had kid cheeze burgers - nothing was left over so I guess all was good there.

Desert for us was another beer and a sparkling mimosa sangria (apparently the fruit in it had been soaked in rum for hours); the kids had their included sundaes.

Over all, highly recommended - we will be back and I will try something else... for now, here are a couple of pics...

Apparently these guys use 1 ton of charcoal a day!!

With the open kitchen, you can see how they cook your food, and also how they don't mess with it!
