The Austin Lunch was a diner owned by the Limberopoulos family, one of a plethora of Greek-owned restaurants in the "Delta," as the old Greektown area of Chicago was known. Author Constance Limberopoulos Constant has written a memoir of her family's experience with the same title; it is an eye-opening account of the struggle of family-owned businesses in Depression-era Chicago, and as such it adds to our understanding of urban America and immigrant life in particular.
