First time we went to this restaurant, very friendly and accommodating, we were able to get a better table than the one we reserved. My wife also requested slight alteration to her meal and it was taken care of to her satisfaction. The meal was excellent and our waitress explained all of the specials completely and had her recommendations for what we were interested in eating. Will be going back soon and bringing friends. More

Discover South Suburbs

The south suburbs region of Chicago features a wide variety of different types of restaurants that please all palates. Fine dining is available throughout the south suburbs as there are numerous establishments where you can order an elegant meal. However, real "Chicago" food is most prevalent at the countless locally owned eateries, many of which have been open for decades. This applies to international food of all types, especially Chinese and Italian restaurants that focus on classic deep-dish Chicago pizza. Traditional smokehouse barbecue is also abundant on the south side of town, along with other kinds of soul food. Establishments that serve this fare are interspersed among the many local pub-and-grill combo restaurants and national-chain franchises.
