Norton's is a traditional neighborhood restaurant in Highland Park, IL. They serve burgers and entrees. Fresh pies are outstanding. Proprietor, Jeff, is very personable and knows his customers by name. Usually lively and crowded at prime times on weekends. Live entertainment is offered frequently. Great casual experience!

Reliable neighborhood place with great salads, burgers, and a full bar. Great for lunch, dinner, and in the summer the outdoor tables make for fun outdoor dining.

A local hangout where everyone knows your name. We usually share a salad and a burger. Fun, casual, and friendly.

We have eaten here a number of times and it's always reliable and very good. Pricing seems decent and a fairly wide variety of options from salads to burgers to fish. Nice selection of beers as well. Can get crowded and if a band is setting up will reduce the number of tables even more.

This is our go to burger place. The best in town. Salads, fajitas, etc. You really can't go wrong. If it feels a bit like Cheers, that's because Jeff,Richie and Blanche and their great staff are so natural at making you feel at home.

Great casual spot to visit especially if your from out of town. The owner took extra time to welcome us as we walked in and chat with us while sitting at the bar. All we ate were nachos but they were great. We will go there again.

Great local spot. We are often here before or after theater. On this visit we had a bowl of soup and a steak sandwich. Both were very tasty. With a friendly host and good service by the wait staff, you cannot go wrong with a visit to Norton's.

Been here a million times, always eat the cobb salad, its great but this place has the most underrated Burger in chicago, it is ridicuoulsly good. Hard to explain, but it is by far the most flavorful burger around, cooked perfectly, fries there are great. Never a bad meal.
