    Who would've guessed. My daughter was celebrating her birthday and had a request for pie instead of cake. Little known secret Mr. G's has the best homemade cherry pies. Would have given it five stars but my Gandma Martha's cherry pie is the best. The pies are homemade by the owners wife with quality ingredients...Trader Joe's cherries. I highly recommend giving it a try and they're very reasonably priced.

    Took the Old Town/Gold Coast tour with my wife and group of 4 other couples. We have visited the city many times, because we live in the suburbs, but this was our first walking tour. Kent was our guide and he was friendly, enthusiastic, and you could tell he enjoyed his job, which is always a plus.  The tour provided a nice balance of history, information about the neighborhoods, as well as information about what we were sampling food-wise. The walking part of the tour gave us perspective of the neighborhoods you miss out on when driving through, and the shops/restaurants were all delicious-never would have tried these places without going on the tour, and we were left wanting to come back again to them! All the employees at the stops were also friendly, but Tom at The Spice House was the most enjoyable-so much fun, and we learned so much! Eat a light breakfast, and enough food is provided as lunch. We can't wait to try the other tours that Food Planet offers, and recommend this tour to anyone, whether you are a visitor OR a native of Chicago!

    This is a real joint. Not a place one driving by would say "hey let's stop in there it looks nice"...it can be kind of intimidating especially in the warmer months w the many Harley's in the pot hole ridden pkg lot. Don't judge a book by its cover on this one. Inside is comfortable swiss lodge type decor, a horseshoe bar area great for hanging out, and their Friday night fish fry is one of the best around for the family!

    Long time pizza customer, and tonight the family tried the gnocchi with vodka sauce for the first time. Delicious! We ordered delivery for Super Bowl Sunday and were able to share 1 serving and add a salad and side of Italian sausage to share as well. Pizza was perfectly made and kids ate it up. Will order again for sure!

    Went for a weekday lunch, and enjoyed the wonderful attentive service and clean, nicely decorated interior. We had the Sakana salad (mixed greens,cream based dressing with wasabi peas) which was fresh. We also had a special maki roll that was called "Rock n' Roll" and the dragon roll. Both were delicious, and 8 pieces, so more than enough to share between the 2 of us. Miso soup was also great! My wife and I were impressed and happy to have this restaurant in town! Also glad they now serve beer and wine, coming back for dinner, definitely!

    A acheté un Deal Yelp 1 check-in

    My wife and I headed out for a dinner date kinda late for the suburbanites that we are around 8pm.  After using Yelp to find a good restaurant in the La Grange area for Indian cuisine we found Kama and made an Open Table reservation for 2 @ 8:30pm. This was our 1st time at Kama and when we arrived it was packed so we sat down outside and waited for our table and had a drink. We couldn't have planned it better for shortly after we were seated the restaurant turned over and emptied soon after and we pretty much had the place to ourselves and greatly enjoyed the recommendations made by the host/wife of the chef and have to admit we've never had better Indian food in our lives. The fresh ingredients, spice level, and layer upon layer of flavor were absolutely incredible. Will most definitely return soon!

    My wife had raved about this place ever since going on a ladies night this past Summer.  So we made a reservation on Open Table at 9am for Brunch (which wasn't necessary) and headed out to Oak Park with the kids this past Sunday.  The server unlocked the door for us right at 9am and my wife and I ordered Bloodies immediately and they were Killer!  As for the breakfast and service fantastic!  Highly attentive all around.  Tons of exciting items on the menu we had never heard of plus your standard latin fare.  My wife had the huevos benedicto, I had the spinach frittata w/ plantains, my daughters had heuvos rancheros and cinnamon french toast w/ carmelized mangos/blueberries and ice cream.  What a fantastic start of the day...will definately go back for date night next go round!

    We were originally drawn to it for its environmentally friendly practices, sustainable menu choices, and rave reviews from our friends.  Located in a hotel in a nondescript location in the Western Burbs one would never expect there to be a progressive restaurant there.  My wife and I have dined at Glen Prairie a couple of times and will continue to do so.  The service is somewhat inconsistent but quite friendly and we've always gotten our booze order in a timely manner and our menu selections are always good and at proper temperature.

    Tired of the same old breakfast options in the area we headed there after reading the great reviews on Yelp one recent Sunday morning.  My wife and children ages 10, 8, and 4 squeezed into the cozy cafe and were immediately greeted w/ a hearty Bon Jour! Bon Jour!  We had an amazing french breakfast!  Generous portions (but not too much), unique menu choices, fresh ingredients, and friendly attentive service make this family owned Cafe a must in the western suburbs.  We'll be sure to visit again...perhaps for dinner w/ a bottle of wine in our jacket.

    I go there annually 5 years running w/ my buddy to take the edge off the night before the Chicago Triathlon.  This time we dined al fresco w/ 2 other friends also participating in the event.

    I think they changed the menu a little this year but figured it out w/ the help of the always attentive staff and ordered the old stand by Caprese salad, grilled Calamari, and for the main course Filet Peperonata which honestly could use a couple more potato wedges (my only criticism).  Polished this off w/ a couple cold beers to carb load for the next days race and left w/ a full belly and looking forward to returning again next year.
