I'm a diehard for really great pasta and have always had a strong perference for the taylor street restaurants in Chicago. But if you have to eat Italian in the western burbs, I highly recommend Luigis. The atmsphere is nice - fireplace, smaller rooms, large bar.The country rigatoni is wonderful!!! They also cater and we often order the chicken limone, marsala and country rigatoni for family dinners. Prices are good. We had a party for about 60 people there are everyone loved the food. The room was good, the service was great and we were really happy with the event overall.
I keep trying this place to get a great meal as I love Italian, but its always pretty much the same - good, but not great. The menu changes and I like the appetizers consistently better than than the main entrees. I'm a big fan of really good pasa, but each item I've ordered has been "ok". bar is good sized and I prefer to sit there. Service is good, prices pretty reasonable, but not chain Italian prices, so don't expect that.
While there aren't a lot of other options for horse "gear" nearby, the Riding Store would still be a great choice. rarely have I had difficulty finding whatever I need there and the staff is incredibly helpful and will order what you need if they don't have it, if they can. Lots of gift ideas for horse lovers, lots of gifts for kids. Used saddes on consignment available as well as new ones. They've been great for me and I haven't had to go anywhere else!
Fox Meadow Farm is a great place to board you own horse/s, or to take lessons if you don't own your own horse. We started as lessons on school horses and now own a horse we have boarded there for two years. I have looked at other barns locally, as well as in two other states and there is no question this is the "mercedes" of barns. Now, you pay for that. But there are two indoor rings, one outdoor sand ring, 5-6 grass pastures, 5 dirt paddocks and entrance to the paths in the adjacent forest preserve.
Turnout is in addition to board, lessons are in addition of course. The trainers are good, there has been some turnover but there are about 5 trainers available you can work with. The staff is good and very aware of what going on with your horse. Veterinarians and farriers come to the barn regularly. Worth checking out and worth your consideration for sure. Wonderfully conviently located for those living in Naperville, Bolingbrook, Woodridge.
Macarena is the more afforable tapas option in Naperville, and just as good as the popular chose, Maison Sabika. The dates are wonderful, the beets good. So many good hot dishes, too many to list! The blue cheese chips are plentiful and if you're a blue cheese lover, its a must try, but they're not the most outstanding. would be better at a sports bar with a beer.
weird location in the strip mall on the south east corner of Aurora Ave/Rt 59, but low rent means better prices I guess! I will return and prefer it over Maison. Atmosphere is a little lacking, but good food makes you forget.
I'm not aligned with the previous reviewers- I thought ht efood was good, nice flvor, but not anything particularly special. I've had better Mexican for sure - though those places were in Chicago and the Dallas area, so maybe this is really good Mexican for SLC, that is possible. Prices were very reasonable and I would go back again, but its not a destination for me.
with over 3500 employees across the country, HNTB can provide staff from every discipline in virutally any geographic location. Good corporate support of the client. Lots of expert resources available for clients to access as specific or atypical issues arise. Formed as a design company, they now provide significant program management and construction management services throughout the country. Big player in tollway and highway sectors.
selection of salads and sandwichs are good, though if you are become a frequent visitor, you can tire of the somewhat limited menu. Hot and cold sandwiches, slightly smaller sizes available. Kids menu choices as well. Dessert choices are OK, but look better than they typically taste. Prices good.
I think the rating provided are way too high. I'm been going to the Butler for many years, particularly during the off-season when we head up to the lake house for the weekend. Clam chowder is great, steaks are decent and there is usually a good steak special. But I haven't found any fish or other item on the menu that I like at all. The atmoshpere is sort of old-fashioned in terms of decor and the menu feels that like as well. The views are great and the location is fabulous as you can wander downtown Saugatuck, get ice cream, or walk the dock looking at the boats. Summer weekends are crazy busy, with long waits, but I'd rather grill at home those weekends anyway.
The selection is smaller than many of the other local choices, but I love coming here. The staff is very knwledgable and helpful, spending time with you to find the right wine. A nice, small selection of artisan cheeses are always available,which makes it a nice one-stop-shop when you have friends coming over. There is enough selection to find something that will work for you. Its also next to Trader Joe's, which makes it a convenient stop as well!!
