Outstanding quality at Black Oak Restaurant

For mouth-watering, homemade meals prepared fresh everyday, the Black Oak Restaurant and Tavern, 9630 S. Pulaski Road, in Oak Lawn, has local residents giving it rave reviews.

Offering full-service breakfast, lunch and dinner, the Black Oak has quickly made a name for itself since it opened in February of 2016. It is under the direction of local residents Greg Trusk, Joanne King and Juan Castillo, and they are dedicated to providing only the best homemade food.

The name of the establishment comes from the earliest known name for the area, Black Oak Grove, later abbreviated to Black Oak, which became the city of Oak Lawn.

All the menu items at The Black Oak are homemade. They use only the best ingredients and never freeze their meat.

The staff takes pride in the outstanding quality of their food, and they feel that The Black Oak stands alone from other restaurants on taste, quality and portions.

In addition, they have completely built from scratch an all-new interior, with new dining room, bar area and washrooms.

Customers have praised the comfortable new look, and the owners feel that they’ve brought a Lincoln Park atmosphere to the South Side.

The Black Oak opens every day at 7 a.m.

For breakfast, the menu has all the favorites, from eggs to omelets to skillets and Eggs Benedict to breakfast sandwiches, pancakes, French toast and more.

For lunch or dinner, the appetizers are amazing and include fried calamari, pretzel bites, wings, tacos, nachos and Southside Sliders.

And don’t forget to check out Mama’s Mac-n-Cheese Station with its three-cheese blend of blue cheese, Romano, cojita and aged cheddar, topped with Focaccia bread crumbs—and for a nominal extra charge, you can add any of the following: brisket, pulled pork, applewood bacon, chili, pulled chicken, pork belly or buffalo sauce.

Black Oak has a wide variety of soups and salads, all fresh and homemade.

Entrees include the Black Oak Burger, an 8-oz. charbroiled and well-seasoned handmade patty consisting of black angus beef topped with aged cheddar cheese, lettuce, tomato, onion and chipotle aioli on a brioche bun.

Folks will also love the pulled pork sandwich, chicken sandwich or talapia sandwich.

Steaks, chicken and tilapia are featured entrees, and they’re all so delicious that choosing one can be a challenge.

The Black Oak also offers a full-service bar, draft and domestic beers, martinis and an amazing Bloody Mary. It features whiskies such as Jameson Caskmate, Glenlivet 12yo, Bulleit Rye, Evan Williams, Laphroaig Scotch, Glenfiddich Single Malt and many more. An outstanding wine list featuring several varieties is also available.
