It had been some time, since we had last been at Hubcaps, so we decided to stop for an early dinner today. Hubcaps is decorated as a throwback to restaurants and diners from the '50's and '60's. There are plenty of tables, there is a counter with stools and even a dance floor for those oldies. Pam was our server and she brought the menus and warm dinner rolls with butter, as we sat down at the counter. Knowing how big the full slab of ribs, we decided on a couple of different appetizers. The first were onion rings which were crispy. The second was the pizza bread which came with marinara sauce and tasted great. The third was the cheddar stuffed jalapenos which were definitely well stuffed with cheddar . We also ordered the full slab of ribs dinner which was $15.95. It came with a dinner salad, as well as cole slaw and mashed potatoes and gravy. The ribs were awesome and of the fall-off-the-bone variety. Plus, it was a humongous portion. We were unable to finish everything and I think we'll have two more meals. The prices are reasonable. The staff is excellent, and the owner, Corinne, enjoys meeting and talking with her guests. A great dinner.

We hadn't been to Hubcaps Pizza Bar & Grill for awhile and we were in the neighborhood, so we stopped by on a Wednesday night. Little did we know that on Wednesday, there is a jitterbug (dance) club that meets there with a DJ. The center of Hub Caps becomes a dance floor. We sat at the bar for dinner, since we didn't have our dancing shoes with us. The owner and the staff were really friendly and efficient. We ordered a full slab of ribs which came with cole slaw. Full slab does misrepresent the slab - it is HUGE! We also ordered the meatloaf dinner with mushrooms and mashed potatoes and there was a very tasty gravy on top. There is a lot of 50's memorabilia and it is definitely a throwback, but a lot of fun. The food is delicious and the prices are reasonable!

Members of the Windy City Jitterbug Club plus other folks who enjoy dancing or watching others dance will have a great evening. The crowd is mostly 60 and older but have the energy of 20 somethings. The DJ plays a variety of music. The night we attended it was fox trots, swing, and a general mix. Though we had read rave reviews about the pizza and food, we, unfortunately, cannot agree. The pizza was lame, much like frozen boxed pizza you might buy for your grandkids. The atmosphere is retro, cute, but be mindful the dance floor appeared to be small ceramic tiles. It did not seem to hinder anyone from kicking up their heels.
Very welcoming crowd and staff.

Had great service and excellent food. Staff and owner were very pleasant and this place has great history. We ordered pizza and burgers. Burgers were cooked to perfection and thin crust pizza,although not the Chicago norm, was great! A dinner with old world taste is a sure revisit. We will be back! Thanks.

Went there for a surprise Birthday Party for a family member. Very cute retro themed diner. Just the right size for the group we had. Everyone enjoyed the atmosphere and friendly staff. We ate from a buffet of italian sausage, thin crust pizza, rotini and chicken tenders. Everything was very good. I would go back if in the area.
