Set to the sounds of 1960s and 70s Chicago soul and blues, Dove’s Luncheonette offers counter service morning, noon and night in the heart of Chicago’s Wicker Park.

Chef de Cuisine Dennis Bernard’s inviting menu delivers Southern-inspired Mexican cuisine, alongside a tequila and mezcal-focused bar program, with the spirit of genuine hospitality. The 41-stool luncheonette takes its name from Nelson Algren’s A Walk on the Wild Side, and draws inspiration from bygone diners and watering holes to create a place where people from all walks of life can converge over a cup of coffee, cocktail, and a great meal. 

Dove's Luncheonette offers counter style seating on a first-come, first-serve basis. They do have a few reservations available throughout the day.  They do not accept reservations during Saturday & Sunday brunch or holidays.
