This outpost of Doc B's is likely more attractive as a lunch spot than a dinner location. We came before a concert and had a leisurely dinner that was...fine. We were seated near the front window which could have been great but there was a TV literally inches from our faces. Distracting and made us feel like we were in a sports bar. The food was solid. The salads are very good, the hot chicken, a deep fried chicken with a spicy sweet and sour sauce, was surprisingly dry on the inside. Again nothing bad, but not particularly standout either.

Literally the worst hamburger i have ever tried to consume. There was a mountain of shredded cheddar cheese that was on top of my burger unmelted. I don’t normally review places, but it was almost comical how badly they prepared this burger. Maybe just get a salad if you come here. My fries also tasted soapy. (At least they wash their hands)

Our trip to Doc B's was exactly as we'd hoped. Back corner booth, attentive but quiet wait staff, delicious food. We initially had reservations at Eddie V's but didn't want to get all dressed up and spend $200 for dinner. Doc B's has different environment, different food and different service, so I'm not comparing. Just thought I'd mention it. We'd definitely recommend.

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!

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!

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.
