This is the place to find exceptional and hearty Italian, that could have been cooked in your mother's kitchen. The place is laid back, and the service is never rushed. You instantly feel like family when the owners greet you at the door. Try the veal marasala and the eggplant rolls for a really nice meal that is very memorable. Great place for families and a good meal on the weekend
PROS: Great family dining place
If you are looking for great Louisiana style food borth of the Mason Dixon line, this is your place. The place is fun, almost like sitting on a southern porch in the summer time. The food is simple, but tasty. The drinks are pure fire water - I guarantee.
PROS: Down home atmosphere
CONS: Hard to find
This is a glitzy seafood restaurant that looks as great as the food tastes. The ambiance is exceptional, and perfect for evenings out and date restaurants. They feature rare alcohol and gourmet quality dishes. If you are adventurous check out the sushi bar and the delicious octopus. The prices for entrees is usually under $25, so it is very reasonable.
PROS: Great prices, and food
CONS: parking is hard to find
If you are looking for a mammoth cornbeef sandwich, that is capable of feeding two people or one very hungry person - this is the place. It is unpretentious, and inocuous at best. The sandwiches are reasonably priced, under $6. You would never believe that this nondescript little place, was capable of making the most tasty corned beef or pastrami sandwiches, that you would ever taste in your life. The meat is cut thick on slices of rye, with peppers in a bag on the side. It takes two hands to eat the sandwich. You can definitely make two or three sandwiches out of the one sandwich. They use Vienna beef products, that melt in your mouth. The meat is chewy, but not too chewy. Mouth watering and tasty. Just thinking of them, makes you want to venture to one of their various 2 suburban locations in Harvey and Hazelcrest. They have four locations on the southside and in downtown Chicago. Make sure that you are hungry, because you will definitely not be able to finish this sandwich at one sitting.
PROS: Great sandwiches, piled high, at great prices
CONS: If you blink, you would probably pass the place
Drinks and appetizers are very good, and full of flavor. Would recommend the Pomegranate Bellini. It is made with pomegranate liqueur, raspberry liqueur, and grand marnier. You don't realize that alcohol content, because it is so good. The olive oil dipping sauce is phenomenal, made with Parmesan, balsamic vinegar, and extra virgin olive oil. It has the taste that makes you want more bread, because it is unique. The calamari is average, with a decent marinara sauce. The disappointment are the entrees. The pastas tend to be over cooked, especially the linguine. I ordered linguine shrimp fra diavoli. The diavoli sauce stated that it was spicy with brandy overtones. I did not taste it. It tasted more like a bottle of spaghetti sauce poured over pasta, with a six shrimp. The gnocchi sampler, had very little sauce and is unusually dry. The special of the evening was Parmesan encrusted whitefish, over a bed of creamed spinach. The whitefish over spinach, lacked flavor. The spinach offering stated that it was creamed, but in fact it was steamed and undercooked with no flavor or spices. The whitefish was bland, and could have used rosemary or dill to give it some flavor. The menu states that the food is characterized by simple sophisticated pairings. They could use a little more creativity, to accompany the prices that are overpriced in my opinion. The chairs are too close in proximity to the other guests. You or the server are constantly bumping into the other patrons, while trying to eat your meal. The service was very good, and our server was very knowledgeable. This could not help the fact that this restaurant's food is mediocre at best.
PROS: Bread dipping sauce, drinks, and appetizers are above board
CONS: Entrees lack flavor and the pastas tend to be overcooked.
Dr. Luckett is infectious. If you don't catch yourself, you will wind up joining him in singing 70's and 80's pop tunes. His staff is friendly and courteous. They work with you to lower your costs, and provide the service that you need. He is a pleasure to visit, and takes the fear out of hearing that drill. They even take Sears card, so you don't have to worry about having cash if you don't have insurance
PROS: Very good
Rather small, but still provides quality service. They carry all of the major brands of groceries, and some mom and pop brands. It is a small, quaint place that is great for picking up groceries when you don't want to go to the big boxes.
PROS: Great for last minute pickups
Great place to pick up socks of all types, including tights. The prices are reasonable, given that the products are second runs. They have a vast selection that is constantly changing. The prices are affordable, and you will always find something in the color that you seek
PROS: Great prices
CONS: Not always first rate quality
One of the best rehab places located in the south burbs. They take time with you, you are never rushed, and they explain how the physical therapy is helping to rehabilitate your body. They are very supportive to adults and children alike. They accept most major health insurance policies, and do not require you to spend unnecessary time in the office filling out forms.
Great spot to grab a corned beef and pastrami sandwich, and head off for the lakefront. This place is frequented by University of Chicago and Hyde Park residents, who realize that they have a gem in their midst. The sandwiches are hefty, but not too much to eat in one sitting. They are very good, and offer dijon or brown mustard as a condiment. This place can not be beat, and the prices are very reasonable.
