The triangle reastaurant is the place to go for an old fashion reastarant with things on the menue that you remember as a kid and one of those glass dessert cases. I found the food good and the prices good. Good loction on the corner of Washington and 83. They have breakfast specials and are open early.
This is a no frills sandwich and coffee shop with good food and a nice staff. There are a little tables by the window to watch the world go by or you can sit outside on the street.
I used to like Austins because of the good tasting southwest food. But one day we had a roach crawl across the table in broad daylight. If they have roaches out during the day, just think what is crawling in the walls. Made me look alot closer at my black beans and rice. I have not gone back and would not recommend.
Great deal on good food and large portions. They have a huge menue and a buffet. Wonderful greek salid, banquit room and wait staff dressed for a much fancier place. Big roomy booths, lots of parking. This is a good place to bring the family because of the large menue you will keep everyone happy.
The Last Chance is a cowboy (1800's) theme bar and grill. It has alot to look at, old photos, a cigar shop indian antique lamps. But I found that the food was just OK and overpriced. Kids are often seen there in the afternoon and early evening, but I had a hard time explaining the topless painting to my eight year old boy. Although we were in the non-smoking section, smoke seems to fill the entire place. They have bands on some weekends, including Christain Music on some sunday evenings. It would be a good place to meet the guys afterwork for a beer burger and game of pool but it is not a family location.
Small place with really creative and dedicated women running it. This is art at the everyday person level. Kids touch, play and create. Classes and camps are during the year and the yearly family membership is a real deal. Please check this place out and support people who want to bring art to us all. Check out the bubble bus that you offen find in parades etc.
Don't miss the Saturday Cruise in during the summer. Lots of classic cars show up and the owner will even have a few bands during the summer. Last year we had Elvis. Great place for families if your kids are old enough not to touch the cars. They have a childrens meal served in a paper 1950's chevy. The wait staff wears 1950 uniforms. The food is your typical drive in fare, with dogs, fries and rootbeer. Just OK food but a fun place on Saturdays. Parking can be tight. you might have to park at the train station across the street or better yet if you don't have a hot rod yourself take the train.
I have been impressed with the teachers at Grayslake Middle School. They have done alot with fewer funds and a ever growing district. Some programs will be restored next year, in Art and Music but how long this will last no one knows. If I had the funds I would transfer my child to a private school with smaller classes and a more stable income. But this is a clean, safe school run by responsible adults. It isn't what it should be but I think my child will still do OK.
This green house is conviently located by saddlebrook farm. They have a selection of garden flats as well as common and exotic flowers and greenery. I even bought fresh veggies there. Lots of parking, nice people and they take credit cards. Still have alot of nice things this late in the season (July) and half price!
I have always had a good experience with Lewis Florist. They are very nice, have a good selection on hand and a delightful showroom. I was introduced to them when I received a plant for my neighbor. They gave me a rose for my trouble.
