Deleece Grill Pub

Location: 3313 N Clark St.
Cost: About $12 per person

A few weeks back Schneider and I got tickets for the Cubs/Sox game at Wrigley. Specs had stayed over the night before, and since he was driving up North anyways, he decided to give us a ride and join us for some pregame brunch. We wanted to make sure that he didn't get stuck in any major traffic for the game, so we stopped a few blocks south of the field at Deleece Grill Pub.

Logistics
They've got one main room and a pretty nice back patio at Deleece. We were hoping to get sat outside, but the hostess told us it would be a 40 minute wait. I was surprised by this since we were the only people waiting. We were in a bit of a rush and took one of the many inside tables. Then five minutes later a group of four guys got up and left from outside, another group walked in, asked for outdoor seating, and was sat immediately. So... yeah.

The coffee refills were a bit lacking, but besides that the service was good. The food mostly floated right around $10 whether it was a sandwich or breakfast platter. The portions weren't all that large, but it's not like we left hungry.

The Food
Specs and I were in the mood for breakfast while Schneider was feeling some lunch. Specs got the Steak Benedict, I had the Cake Dogs, and Schneider got the Apple and Walnut Chicken Salad Sandwich. The egg was poached nicely with the steak benedict and that's probably the high point of the dish. It was pretty sloppily put together, and the steak was very chewy. The Cake Dogs were basically breakfast sausages in a pancake batter. It was a nice combo of sweet and savory. The plate was pretty bare bones though. Schneider didn't care much for the chicken salad either.

Overall
They may have an unlimited Mimosa bar, but there's really no food based draw for brunch at Deleece Grill Pub. In general I thought the dishes were a bit lacking and sloppy. I'd go back to give the Mac N Cheese a try or possibly one of the burgers. For now though, I'm giving them 1.5 out of 5 Pearls.
