Any Restaurants Cash Only or That Do Not Accept AMEX??

El Chevere | Jun 17, 2013 01:12 PM


Does anybody know of any restaurants in Chicago or West Chicago area (Oak Brook, Naperville, etc.) that only take cash OR take credit cards except AMEX??

Posted a similar question on Tripadvisor and the repliers tried lecturing me on how to use a credit card and educating me that all restaurants take cash--gee, what a revelation.

As an example, Peter Luger in Brooklyn only takes cash or one of their own company issued credit cards--but no other credit cards of any motive for wanting to know this information is so that I do not get caught shorthanded at a restaurant and have to wash dishes to pay for my meal.

Any restaurants like a Peter Luger in Chicago that only take cash or credit cards (company owned or VISA) but NOT AMEX???....hoping this is a simple question.

Thanks for your help.
