FOOD FROM SCRATCH - MADE WITH LOVE - FOREST PARK AND OAK PARK LOCATIONS
At Scratch Restaurants, our goal is to serve our favorites, prepared perfectly from Scratch, never frozen (we joke that we only freeze ice. Oh, we make that too). All burgers are house-ground using prime cuts of brisket and chuck, and served on locally sourced rolls. We house-brine our B&B pickles, and as for condiments? Yes, we even make our own ketchup and mustard.
We started with a humble concept: beer, burgers and good times. SKL has been cranking out top-notch food for three years! Then, we opened a deli right across the street to up our sandwich game, enter the coffee scene, and provide a party room and full-service catering.

IN THE MEDIA
Great atmosphere, good service and the food, although heavy comfort food, is really good. Mac n Cheese like no other, sausage and crostini with homemade giardiniera is exceptional. Don’t like can beer or a plastic cup so I keep my own glass martini glass there!
We had brunch on Sunday and cannot wait to go back. We had the chicken and waffles, the man burrito and the hangover burger. Everything was fantastic. Love that you get a beer back with the loaded Bloodies!
The food was excellent and the service was superb! The young lady serving us offered helpful suggestions and made the meal a delight!
