Since moving to Chicago several years ago, the city has turned me into a "foodie" or "food snob". I am more likely to go out of my way for an excellent local spot than settle for a national chain restaurant. I recently found myself in Lombard, a Southwestern suburb of Chicago, and needed a place to eat. Assuming I would have to choose a chain restaurant, I start walking across the parking lot from the store I had just left. Saw this spot and thought I'd give it a try. I'm SO glad I did!
I'll admit, I entered the place 15 minutes before they closed so I expected stale meat and being told they were out of some items. Instead, the cashier was helping me select items, even allowing me to sample one of their sauces to see if it was too spicy for me. Together, we created a combination I was certain would taste good but surely sounded odd.
Impressed! The food was fantastic! I was pleasantly shocked that it tasted fresh as if it were earlier in the day, had been prepared to order and was just delicious.
The owner arrived at closing time, while I was bagging up the rest of my meal to take with me. She was kind, not rushing me out, and said these are her family recipes.
If you're looking for an inexpensive, quick Chicagoland-local style eatery while shopping the Oak Brook / Yorktown area, I recommend giving this place a try. You'll be pleased.
