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 Tom Carlin’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.
We do however, have a few reservations available throughout the day, click the link below to see the availability!

Take your taste buds on a trip down south with a 'Barbecue & Breaks' Night at Dove’s Luncheonette. Launched earlier this summer, each event focuses on the regional grilling and marinades of the American South, from Texas to Kansas City. On Sunday October 21st, expect a hearty, country feast prepared by Chef de Cuisine Tom Carlin, paired with expertly mixed agave cocktails and specially-selected breakbeat records that sample earlier recordings in funk, jazz and R&B - all inspired by a particular region of the United States. Coming up: Memphis!
