Named for its founding chef, Aunt Bea’s Restaurant is a hub of home-style cookin’ just north of the Loop. This mom-and-pop-style restaurant has continued to serve up Texas-sized portions of traditional dishes, just like Aunt Bea herself started doing more than 70 years ago. 

The small town cafe atmosphere you experience walking through these doors is nostalgic of a bygone era recalled through reruns of the Andy Griffith Show. Southern comfort food such as biscuits and gravy are available for breakfast, lunch and dinner, with breakfast options served all day long. Be sure to try the homey chicken and waffles and the steam table—a seven entrée selection with the option of 1 meat and 3 vegetables, or you can ditch 1 of the vegetables for a salad.

But, perhaps the biggest show stopper on the menu is The Beast—2 lbs. of chicken fried steak, 1 lb. of mashed potatoes, 1 lb. of vegetables, 1 large biscuit and a piece of cake. Oh, and don’t forget the gravy, lots and lots of gravy. This food challenge has to be devoured in 30 minutes or less to earn a spot on the coveted wall of fame and a free t-shirt.

Aunt Bea’s is open 24 hours on Fridays and Saturdays. They also cater and take to-go orders.
