Kick-Butt Steaks, Belt-Bustin' Burgers & Relevant Reubans

It’s nice these days when you can find a place that doesn’t skrimp on the meat and prices that won’t break the bank. I found such a place in Franklin Park right across from the Metra station on the south side of the tracks— a kind of old school, but new-look diner called Crystal Fountain Cafe. The bottom line on this near west suburban joint is value, portion size and flavor; all of which exceeded my expectations.

Reuban Sandwich

I had the Reuban Sandwich that my friends have been raving about, so had to give it a try. Yeah, the thing was indeed stacked high with tender corned beef, quite delicious and substantial. My lunchtime meal came with fries, cole slaw and a cup of soup. I might order it again, but I’m addicted to their 1/2 pound burgers that truly rock my gastro-world. Kudos to CFC!
