Recently received 30 beautiful roses my husband ordered from Jerry's. They delivered them on time, and the flowers are just gorgeous. Very fresh, nicely arranged, and 3 days later they are still going strong. It looks like I'll get 6-7 days out of them, which is quite a lot to ask from roses. I've used Jerry's once before and got rave reviews for the arrangement they created then too. Would definitely use again!
PROS: Quick local delivery, beautiful arrangements
The Grotto has great pizzas, including a really good Buffalo Chicken Pizza and Cheeseburger pizza. The best deal is Monday Madness though, where you get a Large, 2 Topping, deep dish pizza for $8.50. It's huge and delicious! Atmosphere is nice; they have a full bar and often have live entertainment. I believe they're open late as well. Can't beat it!
PROS: Great pizza, nightly specials, open late!
CONS: A little smokey
Jalepenos is easily the best Mexican restaurant within 40 miles. They have a very large menu, prices are very affordable, and the food is always excellent. The best part though, is that their service is incredibly good. Your drink will never be even half empty before they're there refilling it. Hands down the best service I've received anywhere, and I've been to Jalepenos at least 50 times in the past few years. Always excellent!
PROS: Good food, good service!
I have been here multiple times and could eat here 5 nights a week! They have the best fried chicken in the world, and it's so affordable I don't know how they stay in business. For $5.75 you get a quarter of a chicken, potato, and salad bar! Their salad bar features all homemade salads, soup, breads, brownies, etc. and you could easily make a meal of this alone. Service is absolutely fantastic. The atmosphere is very nice; they have a full bar, fireplace, etc. The building is plenty large to accomodate crowds too. Family owned and run. This place is my new favorite spot!!
PROS: Service, food, price!
CONS: Not a single thing!
The China House turned into a Chinese Buffet this year. They offer around 20 hot items and a cold salad bar as well. There's always enough food to please everyone's tastes. Dinner was $8.50-ish last time I went. The food is always good, atmosphere is nice, and they are open late! This is a great option when you just don't feel like cooking.
PROS: Convenient, tasty!
I had been bringing my dog to Tail Waggers for about a year, when they apparently changed owners. I went in early this month with a coupon from the newspaper for a free toothbrushing and $3 off. I told the receptionist in the morning that I had the coupon, so she ordered the toothbrushing. When picking up my dog, I forgot the coupon at home and asked if I could bring it in tomorrow morning, or mail it, or anything. The receptionist asked her manager, who told me NO - that I now had to pay for the $10 toothbrushing and would not get the $3 off either. I would not have requested the toothbrushing and don't think this was the right way to treat a regular customer who comes in every 6-7 weeks! The new manager looks to be about 18. I will not be back in after this.
Lynette at Stylon is an amazing hair stylist and this new salon location is very convenient, located just south of downtown Naperville. Prices are extremely reasonable and the talent is higher than pricier chain salons in the area. Appointments are easy to schedule and always accomodating. I highly recommend this salon.
With 24 hour emergency care, the most advanced equine medical equipment around, and at least one very talented equine vet on staff (Margaret MacHarg) - we are very fortunate to have this facility nearby. Unfortunately I've had a few late night visits to the clinic this past year, and can assuredly say that our horses were given the best medical care available without being charged the usual obscene fees which seem to coincide with owning horses. One of the very few places I trust my horses with.
PROS: 24 Hours, Excellent Facility
My husband used Naperville Jewelers for purchasing a custom 3 stone diamond anniversary ring last fall, and I absolutely love it. My husband sketched the ring out, and Edmond, who works on site creating custom jewelry, worked with him to create the exact ring my husband requested. It's absolutely stunning, and I get so many compliments on the unique setting that Dawn at Naperville Jewelers said someone else came in and requested it be duplicated for them! Absolutely great quality custom work here.
PROS: Excellent Custom Work
Shabbona Lake is probably the most well known area lake for fishing, and for good reason. The lake is large enough to offer a wide variety of species, and usually large enough to accomodate the tons of people which visit here. There are ample boat launches and nice facilities so you can bring a your family and your boat and spend the day here.
PROS: Great park
