For those working in the tradeshow business at McCormick Place, Batt's was very popular. Not so popular, at least with the tradeshow crowd was Helen Maebelle's (sp) Soul Queen Cafe'. Memory serves, It was east of Batt's just where 22nd St. turned south before heading east over the Outer Drive.

Went there once in the early '60s before a Sox night game, when the games started at 8. Food wasn't so great; never made it back.
