Oh how the mighty have fallen.....the fall of Ken's Diner

I was in Ken's Diner in Skokie tonight, for the first time in a while.  The place just seemed tired and dirty.  The ceiling was stained, the table was dirty, and the booths looked worn.  I ordered a Bay-Ken burger and was sad when there were no sesame seeds on the bun and the beef fry was not cut evenly. It feels like the owners have given up on the place.  Rumor has it they want to sell the place, but want too much for it.  This once bright star in the Chicago Kosher culinary scene is a shadow of its former self.  Have you been there recently?  Let me know what you thought in the comments.

  1. I was there in May and didn't notice anything off. My Burger Buddy was excellent.
