My CIF tutor and I came here for dinner last night to meet some friends. We came at a really bad time, as the restaurant was packed with people including--as we later found out--a graduation party. He and I had to wait in line for awhile, but when we put in our orders things got better. The order taker spoke directly to me, and when I asked him a question about the side I had requested, he was patient and told me exactly what I wanted to know. In addition, he made sure he had the right topping on my hot dog by asking me. Our food was excellent and we ate outdoors, which was nice. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone, but dinnertime seems to get pretty crowded. That could've just been the night we went though.

Great!
Great!

Noah and I LOVE going to Michael's. The food is always excellent, the service is good and everyone is friendly. It is one of our favorite places to meet friends. There is plenty of space and even outdoor seating in the summer!

This is my son's favorite place to eat. He is a regular there. Whenever he comes up to the counter, everyone who works there already knows what his order will be. All the employees and owners are extremely friendly. He was there one time when there was a cross town baseball game between the Cubs and the White Sox. My son was wearing a White Sox Tshirt. The employees were kidding him about rooting for the wrong team. They made a bet with him that if the White Sox won the series that weekend, they would treat him to his next Chicken Sandwich! The White Sox won. My son came back the next week and everyone remembered the bet. He got his Chicken Sandwich for free! Michaels is just a great place to eat.

I've taken the Metra to Highland Park by myself and walked over to Michael's. When I've been to Michael's by myself, it hasn't been too hard to pay for my food. The first time I went to Michael's by myself, a guy behind the counter named Sal was helpful to me by letting me take my time to order my food. The employees behind the counter have made sure to give the right amount of change. What I got from Michael's was a hot dog with french fries. And the drink I got was a fruit punch. After I paid for my food, I found a place to sit. When I was at my table, I went up to get a napkin, then went back to my table and ate my food. I enjoy the food at Michael's. I enjoy their hot dogs, their french fries, and their fruit punch. The employees at Michael's are helpful and friendly. They have pictures inside the place where you eat your food. And they also have a TV and a place to play video games. After I finished my food, I put my trash in the trash can, and after I cleared off my table, I left Michael's and went to my next place in Highland Park. Michael's is a fun hot dog restaurant to go to.

Following in the footprints of my mom, my brother, Michael and sister, Debbie continue to open the restaurant to individuals with special needs. Great food and a phenomenal atmosphere-Michael's offers a welcoming environment. Everyone loves Michael's with a full menu of salads, hamburgers and hot dogs and now Yogen-Fruz!

Awesome place! Very welcoming to people with disabilities and everyone else as well...Great hotdogs....and we both highly recomend Mike's Bites with parmesan chesse...even better than the cheddar fries (which are pretty darn good!)
Love the buffalo burger and the falafel...wonderful variety at the salad bar...
