This man is within walking distance of my home and he came recommended by a friend of mine. How can you not like a guy with the words "The gentle dentist" on the front window? This humble little office does some very nice work. A lot of local residents trust him to keep their choppers well maintained and healthy. He does work with most insurance. The people who work with him are also very pleasant and professional.
PROS: Caring, pleasant
I have had personal experience with this particular firm. They handle bankruptcy, divorce, and real estate cases. In particular, there are some very seasoned professionals in the estate planning and real estate areas. They work hard for you. And I have found them to be intelligent, thorough and personable. I know first hand how some of these issues can be difficult on people but these lawyers go out of their way to put you at ease. They are trustworthy.
PROS: Intelligent, trustworthy.
Go ahead, you've worked hard all week. You deserve a glorious place to relax, unwind and pamper yourself. No need to jet off to France just yet, because you can get that spa treatment from a more down to earth environment on the Northwest side of the city. They offer facials, massages, styling, manicures and have a doctor at the facility to give you Botox injections. All you need to look and feel beautiful. Enjoy
Located right in the heart of downtown Oak Park, if you love toys or you're a collector, this store will be your nirvana (not the band, the place :) I could easily spend $1,000 here. You'll find classic toys like bobble heads, lunch boxes, wind up dolls, everything from the Stooges, Beatles, Betty Boop, whatever you're looking for, you can pretty much find at Pumpkin Moon. You can find some amazing and unique gifts for family and friends. I have to hide the credit card before I go back othewise I'll be in BIG trouble!"
I am so glad I found this Oak Park charmer. It took me a lifetime (and that's a whole lot of years...) to finally give Indian food a try. And boy, was I surprised at how much I loved it! Part of the charm was the quaint dining area and the superb service, but the food was also very good. They have a small but unique buffet for lunch and dinner and they feature some great, authentic Indian sitar music on Friday nights. Stop by this little restaurant and you'll be happy you did!
PROS: Great sitar music, pretty restaurant, convenient location
This is a glorious facility with an excellent sound system. I have been here for a few concerts and to see David Copperfield. The Opera House is classic looking with lovely architecture. The location couldn't be better (steps from the Metra, buses, trains). I always have a good time when I go here and it's fun to go and get dressed up for a night out on the town. Whenever they have an event, I suggest you try and visit.
PROS: Great facility, lovely to look at, great transporation
What caught my eye at first was that cute little smile face outside their store (silly, I know - but it got me in the door). But what keeps me coming back are some great deals. I enjoy being here because it seems like a mom and pop store from the past. They are friendly, down to earth and helpful. I love their deli section that has some great deals on hot and cold foods. Nice bakery items too!
PROS: Down to earth, good deals, nice people
The infamous Color of Money with Tom Cruise and Paul Newman used this facility for filming. A photo of their smiling faces adorns the hallway of Chris' Billiards. Even someone like me (a really bad player!) enjoys going here to shoot some stick. A lot of tables, reasonable prices, a small snack area with drinks, and lots of colorful people make this a place you should visit at least once. You will enjoy this classic pool hall.
PROS: Convenient location, lots of tables, some great history!
There are so many cab companies in and around the city, that it's hard to choose. For many years, I have found this cab company to be the best, most reliable and efficient around. Everytime I have used them, they never failed me. They were there in literally a flash (ha ha), always sent a nice, clean, air conditioned cab, and the drivers were consistently good and pleasant. I keep their number in my cell phone at all times!
PROS: Clean, reliable, great drivers
This is such a great place and I always make a point of visiting them at least a couple times a year. They have some great produce and goodies, literally right off the farm. They have a tractor ride and a small petting zoo. But the best time to go is right before Halloween. They really dress the place up with fun decorations, and they have great deals on pumpkin pie, costumes, and knick knacks. They are so friendly and welcoming here. And just seeing that giant pumpkin outside their farm brings a smile to my face!
PROS: Fun, great produce, nice people
