From the second you take your seat and a manager asks, “Howyadoin’?” in her thick Chicago accent, you know this place is about as classically Chicago as they come. And judging by how crowded it is, it may be one of the main culprits behind the city’s obesity problem: enormous entrées like tender baked ribs and juicy barbecue chicken come with bread, salad and big, hearty sides like the twice-baked, cheesy gratin potatoes. Real Chicagoans, however, should have no trouble cleaning their plates.

Pillar of the Jeff Park neighborhood owned by a guy who continually gives for the improvement of the community.
I love this venue mostly because I own this venue. I'm proud of the work our team has done since 1986 when my father bought it from the original owner. I salute the work the first ownership did in establishing GSI as a place where families and friends come together as a community. We stand on their shoulders as we continue to put hospitality first and foremost. We play restaurant the right way...hard work, consistency and value. We love our neighborhood and are grateful for all the support for over 50 years.
Great food and environment- if you come to Jefferson Park for nothing else at least stop at Gale Street Inn! (Then come back and check out other awesome places).
