Scottsdale Guy, I definitely remember Loralei's at 95th and Cicero (Oak Lawn). We used to eat there frequently. I also remember when it burned down and quite a fire it was. The Branding Iron was great, another place we went regularly and is dearly missed.
You might remember the restaurants in Ford City when they first opened - Prairie House (near Wieboldt's) and the Ford City Restaurant (near the middle of the mall) and The Millionaire's Club (a seperate building in the west parking lot next to the bank).
Anyone remember Driftwood on Pulaski up around 45th on the west side of the street?
