Once again Allgauer's exceeded our expectations with a great meal. Started with a bowl of soup. I wanted a second bowl, but I knew what was coming next so I passed. A 20oz ribeye done to perfection (med rare) , large baked potato loaded with bacon, cheese, and sour cream. The wife had a huge piece of salmon cooked perfectly. A brownie ice cream sundae large enough to share topped off our dinner. We both took home part of our dinner, more than enough for a second meal. More

Discover Southwest Suburbs

It's no wonder that Chicago's Southwest Suburbs are home to some of the city's best steakhouses and fine dining establishments. The historic downtown area is a great place to book a reservation for a precisely cooked steak, but it's also a great place to find bars and pubs featuring classic deep-dish Chicago-style pizza. If locally brewed beer is more your style, there are many award-winning breweries in the area as well. Top it all off with Japanese sushi and French cuisine, and it's no wonder that the Southwest Suburbs have been considered to be the most livable suburbs in Chicago. No matter whether you're looking for a family-friendly restaurant or a more formal evening, you're sure to find something to please your palate in this region.
