Time Out says

Located near the University of Chicago, this breezy diner keeps hungry students and Hyde Park residents fueled up with a selection of Southern fare from Lillie’s Q chef Charlie McKenna. Drop in morning, day or night for comforting classics like biscuits and gravy, shrimp and grits, fried catfish and chicken fried steak. It’s counter-service so those in a rush needn’t worry about running late. If you do have some time to kill, though, Roux also offers a small list of alcoholic beverages.
