Anything interesting in Oak Brook/Lombard area?

Oh do I agree about Holy Mackarel. Worst meal ever. I too ordered the cioppino & found it inedible and my husbands meal was awful too. The waiter was friendly but reeked of cigarettes. The room looked nice when we arrived but we soon discovered that it is the only way for people to get to the other bar/restaurant in the Westin & we had a constant parade of drunk people passing our table including a woman who set her drink on our table so that she could dig something out of her purse.

A Good Indian Buffet On Devon

Nothing spicy on the buffet? We went to the Viceroy's location in Lombard for Christmas dinner and everything on the buffet was spicy, even the innocent looking roasted veggies.

Best family friendly Indian restaurant on Devon?

I've searched the archives and it made my head spin with confusion. Can anyone reccommend an Indian restaurant on Devon that would good for a diverse group ranging in age from 8 to 72, some vegetarians some big meat eaters, a few indian food addicts and one who's not too thrilled to be trying it for the first time. Open on Xmas with a buffet would be a bonus. Thanks!

Mussels from Costco?

Here it is:

We haven't tried it with the chorizo, & sometimes leave out the clams also.
The shallot/wine/tomato sauce makes for excellent bread dipping.

Mussels from Costco?

I usually go to Burhops for a pound of mussels when it's just me & the husband ,but I'm thinking about serving my favorite mixed seafood grill to a large group next month. I recently noticed that Costco sell a HUGE bag o' mussels at a great price. Has anyone tried them? I would love to save some $$ so I could afford to throw some scallops in the mix.

3 Days in Alsip

Alsip? Um, I suggest you stay home & wait for the next trip.
But if you go anyway there's J.C.'s Pub at 131st & Cicero. Its been years since I've been there but I remember a great marinara w/ fennel. They have bocce courts to kill some time.

Good Indian Buffet in the South Suburbs?

I guess not. Closest I've found on my own is Taj Majal in Orland Park. Has anyone been there ?

Wildfire's Gluten Free Burger

Has anyone tried one? I want to take my husband there, but only if the bun is good enough to pass for regular bread.
