An American Classic

A chicago tradition since 1966


Located on the south side of Chicago in the Beverly community, Ken's on Western is a classic American dining experience. 


The late Ken Courtright originally open Ken’s Lounge in 1956. From the beginning, Courtright said, the restaurant served the Southern Italian specialties that Ken Courtright’s wife, the former Sally Casto, learned to make at the restaurant her family operated in the Brainerd neighborhood years ago.

Ken's on Western is about family, tradition, food, libations, classic favorites, great times with close friends. Our formal dining area is open Monday through Saturday from 4PM until  10PM and Sunday's 12PM until 9PM. The bar is open later!

We love hosting events, banquets, large family gatherings, and more, call us to discuss.
