legendsLegends, located in the heart of campus town, is the cornerstone of Illini pride. Established in 1998 and conceptualized in the spirit of the great Orange and Blue, we pay homage to the legends of yesteryear who walked the hallowed halls of the University of Illinois. Among the faces that adorn our walls are Dick Butkus, Harold “Red” Grange, John “Red” Kerr, Dike Eddleman, Jim Grabowski, Ray Nitscke, and Lou Boudreau – just to name a few. Proudly displayed, as well, is Red Grange’s football jersey, Dike Eddleman’s varsity letterman’s sweater, and an unparalleled life-size replica of Chief Illinwek – a definite must see.

Our menu has a great selection of American cuisine ranging from salads and sandwiches to burgers and pizza. We are proud to be voted “Best Burger” in the C-U area. Our Soup of the Day is often homemade and always delicious. Friday’s and Saturday’s you don’t want to miss our legendary Fish Sandwich – we hand cut our fish and dip it in our own secret recipe beer batter. Eat in or Carry Out, there’s something for everyone at Legends.

Serving 36 bottle beers and 12 of the coldest drafts in town, Legends provides a unique and relaxed atmosphere. We are both the perfect destination spot and a great place to hang… for lunch, dinner, cocktails, late night or enjoying a game.
