Don't be fooled by the strip mall location or the modest, casual decor. Dinner at Sunrise is an affordable five star experience. Daily Chef specials and a diverse menu feature fresh ingredients, thoughtfully prepared and presented. BYOB with no corkage is a bonus. Check their Facebook page for the daily menu, grab your wine and head to Sunrise for a... More

I went to the Sunrise Grill with my elderly Mom. She likes going there and I had never been there. We went at lunchtime and it was relatively busy. It's rather small, so you can easily hear the conversations at other tables. The server was polite and attentive enough. The food was good. I had a shrimp salad. I'll come... More

I've been told about the Sunrise Grill being good for breakfast, and also lunches/dinners. But you know I love breakfast, and I had to stop in and check it out. Jose Medina is the Owner and Head Chef. I understand he cooked at a few other well known and highly regarded restaurants. Food was cooked exactly how I asked it... More

The food is masterfully prepared and presented. The location is clean, modest, and what I deam to be a very appealing down-to-earth family style. Don't be fooled! The appearance is modest for what comes out of the kitchen! We enjoyed our 3 course dinner and unfortunately did not have any room for one of the great dessert offerings. The only... More

I had eaten at the Sunrise Grill for a Park Ridge Chamber event quite a few months ago. It was a breakfast meeting, and this little storefront restaurant in an unassuming strip mall seemed like a typical diner. I was told they also offer dinner and the chef hails from a four star Chicago hotel. So I tried it for... More

Service was great food was good Homemade split pea soup was excellent The veggie sandwich was made on a pretzel like roll Vegetables were grilled to perfection.. but The roll got soggy in a hurry. Got to eat it fast if consistency gives you a hard time (I can't handle mushy bread) Other than that It was really good

When I was told where I was being taken I could not imagine why or how or if the recommendation could be true. But, much to my surprise it was excellent. I had one of the evenings specials: crab cakes, which were really "crabby", garnished with a cabbage slaw that was outstanding (and am not a slaw lover). The garlic... More

Very good breakfast stop, close to O'hare airport, stopped in after early morning arrival. Very good omelette and pancakes. Clean, fast, efficient; classic Chicago style morning breakfast.

Sunrise Grill is owned by Chef Jose Medina. He believes that food should be as pleasing to the eye as it is to the palette. We make every dish as it is ordered, most from scratch. We offer several gluten free sides, entrees and desserts, and several of our dishes can be made gluten free or without a specific ingredient. We are a B.Y.O.B. Establishment with no corkage fee. Please stop by. We promise you won't be disappointed.
