Happy Joe's invented the Taco pizza, which everyone now tries to copy. Their menu includes a wide range of family favorites. Kids will enjoy having their birthday party at Happy Joe's, and the adults will enjoy the good food.
One try and you are hooked!! One of the best ice cream eateries in the Midwest. Extremely fresh ingredients and good prices describe this local business. You want it, they can make it. The kids love the Smurf ice cream, which is bright blue, and cotton candy flavor is always a treat. Adults will love the shakes, malts and sundaes. There are also a host of special "creations". Your imagination will never been this good =)
Great service, tasty dishes, and a quaint, family-owned restaurant make Los Amigos worth the trip. The enchiladas are huge, and a plate of three will feed the biggest appetite. Also good are the tacos and nachos. Fresh ingredients make it stand apart from the competition.
Delicious pizza with a unique style crust, thin, but great chunky crust. Not too much sauce either. A good amount of cheese for those cheeseheads out there. We especially like their taco pizza, lots of toppings there! A little on the high side for price, but their pizzas are huge and feed a crowd for sure.
In business for over 30 years, Hungry Hobo serves good hot and cold sub sandwiches. Good quality meats and cheeses and delicious bread unlike any other sub place out there. My daughter who is a picky eater, loves their pepperoni and cheese sub. They also have a kiddie menu, called Baby Bo's which seems to please most children. Great soups, too. Extremely reasonably priced!
Ross' has been around for over 50 years, which attests to their popularity. Serving the traditional Iowa loose meat sandwich, their menu also includes tenderloin and other sandwiches and platters. The location is very convenient and close to local tourist attactions. A must eat!
Once you learn the name, you realize their name is not the only unique thing about them. Great selection of furniture and accessories, great prices, and they have been in business for over 25 years. Worth visiting if you are in the market for new furniture!
Visit Kirlin's in Peru to find that special gift for someone special. Because it is outside of the busy malls closer to Chicago, you can find items in stock at Kirlin's that you just missed at other Hallmark stores! Friendly service is also a plus. You need a gift, go to Kirlin's!
If you grew up in Iowa, you probably have eaten a Maid-Rite. Now there is one in central Illinois! Located conveniently at the Peru Mall, this is a local gathering spot for a quick bite. Maid-Rites are a loose meat beef sandwich cooked to perfection. The atmosphere is that of a 50's style diner, complete with spinning bar stools for the kids. Reasonable prices complete a fun dining experience!
Blackstone is a unique dining experience for Kendall County. Upscale atmosphere & menu rivaling many in prominent suburbs or the city. Creative salads, great burgers, and the steaks are phenomenal. Great for a group outing or a private dinner. The bar area accomodates a large number of customers and is a great place to spend time with friends. Definitely a must!!
