After the Hike: Local Favorites

Russell's Barbecue They now have strawberry and banana flavored shakes. I never thought I'd see the day.
Jim And Pete's Terrible service. Gross bathrooms. Tight space. Ugh c
Goody Fast Food Service is always great I recommend the gyro plate :) yumm
Dunkin' Donuts If you're looking for a 24hr Dunkin' Donuts, this is one of them. Right near the corner of Belmont & Cumberland.
Bob-O's Hot Dogs Their fries are the best! Greasy & a heart attack waiting to happen but yumm 
Red Lobster Always, always get the Lobsterita. Probably one of the best margarita's you will have from a chain restaurant.
Portillo's You haven't had Portillo's until you have had either a beef sandwich (with or without cheddar) or a Chicago Style Dog with everything.
170 W North Ave, Northlake IL — (708) 409-0000
Umami Sushi AYCE sushi is fresh, full of options, and a steal @ $15
Positano's Restaurant Chicken parmeggiana and tiramisu for dessert are the best!! Great service!
Sicilian Bakery The cannolis are the best in town!
The Blossom Cafe Amazing place. Definitely will be back. I tried the French Toast Collage. It was delicious. My friend ordered a Waffle w/ vanilla ice cream & a side of Corned Beef Hash & Eggs. Mimosas were on point.
Tasty World Great veggie choices && the one guy working was pretty cool
Villa Napoli Found on the site - and thin crust Margherrita was crisp and savory
El Salitre Mexican Restaurant The giant burrito!!!" That's. All I have to say
Mantra One of the best ambience for an Indian restaurant in Chicago. Food tastes perfect and modern without compromising the Indian flavours.
Mr T's Gyros Good place, nice and clean, quick service, nice people. They give plenty for the price! Will be returning.
Frannie's Beef & Catering A decent local joint.
Great Escape come on in for the bears game tonight for 35 cents hot wings and half price apps!!!!
