The “beet”Le juice was amazing!!! I was also blown away by the “wok out” bowl, the noodles were not greasy! Wonderful balance of vegetables and protein. Service was amazing, we had the sweetest and kind person checking in to see if we were ok. All of the service that we interacted with were extremely friendly, and it was a Monday!
Will definitely return when I visit again, it’s so worth it.

My husband and I were in town and saw this near our hotel. What a great experience. We started with Guac and it was a huge appetizer. He had the WOK bowl and loved it. I had a special that was also very good. The service was wonderful. We would for sure go back!

We found this on Open Table just visiting Chicago. The roasted wings on the starter menu was a true winner. Chef even shared his ingredients. Great place for date night and for families. Great variety. Everything was pleasing. Service is stellar!

My husband and I were visiting Chicago with our two young kids. We had a great experience all around! There was enough ambient noise that our kids didn’t disturb anyone, the staff didn’t bat an eye when our 1 year old son accidentally spilled his milk, the food was amazing, and the service was superb. It is definitely someplace we’d visit again- too bad we don’t live closer!

Usually go there for the Quinoa salad that never disappoints but wanted to try something new. I had the California salad, and once again was not disappointed. The food is so good. You can tell they make their own dressings. 👍

Visiting Chicago and found this restaurant / bar through OpenTable. The dining area was modern, service was amazing every single person I interacted with was helpful courteous and professional. This includes my main waitress Sierra. I started out with the gumbo which was for a Chicago eatery out of this world. The roux was done well with just amount of spice excellent seafood and true andouille sausage. I've decided to go for the special that night of the Buffalo chicken sandwich. It was very tasty but needed extra blue cheese sauce for dipping which they brought out to me. I had the elote as my side and it was also amazing. I thought very reasonably priced for downtown Chicago. If I was staying in town again this is one of the places I would go.

Even locals enjoy some touristy stuff sometimes - the SNL Experience and a chain restaurant among the budget hotels. My wife was in the mood for a burger, and Doc B's is about 2 blocks from the SNL exhibit. The burgers were terrific, the crispy potatoes were outstanding, and our server was friendly, attentive, and helpful.

Always good and consistent from Salads to burgers to sandwiches. We live close to Doc B's and dine often either at the restaurant or delivery. The daily soups are very tasty especially the chicken soup on Tuesdays. This past weekend we stopped by for a Sunday lunch . I had the Turkey Burger which was fantastic and my wife had the Matza ball soup which is her favorite. If you want a great place to have some good food and watch a game , Doc B's will not disappoint.
