DIRECTIONS TO THE LUNCH MEETING AT HACKNEY'S
From Chicago: Take I-94 (Edens) North toward Milwaukee. Exit at Lake Avenue going west to Hackney's which will be on your right. If you cross Waukegan Road you have gone too far.
From the Northern Suburbs: Take I-294 South to the Edens spur (I-94 east) and exit on Waukegan road. Take Waukegan south to East Lake Avenue and turn left. Hackney's is on the left side of the street.
From the South and Western Suburbs: Take I-294 north to Dempster and exit eastbound. Take Dempster east to Waukegan Road and turn left. Continue north on Waukegan Road to East Lake Avenue and turn right. Hackney's is on the left side of the street. Road construction update 4/10/07 : The Dempster exit from I-294 is closed due to road construction and tollway improvements. An alternate route would be to exit I-294 northbound at Touhy Avenue. After you exit on Touhy you will see Dempster Eastbound detour signs that route you north then east on Oakton. Take Oakton east to Waukegan Road (Rt. 43), then proceed north on Waukegan Road to Lake Avenue and east to Hackneys. Or go past Dempster to the next exit north, which is Willow Road. But there is construction on the Willow Road exit (4/5/07). Exit east, follow Willow to Waukegan Road (Rt. 43) and turn right (south) on Waukegan Road. Go south to Lake Avenue and turn left/east for a block. You can get an update on tollway construction at www.illinoistollway.com, but I found it hard to get useful information here.
