Rosewood Restaurant Rosemont, Illinois

The food there is comparable to the more popular steakhouses in Chicago. They have excellent steaks served by an very friendly staff. I have eaten there numerous times and leave full and happy every time.

Chicago Hot Dogs or Greek Places in the West Suburbs?

The salad dog has cucumber and lettuce. A true Chicago dog does not. A pickle spear and tomatoes are part of the Chicago dog.

People that have complaints are always more likely to make comments.

ISO good gyros in northwest suburbs

I have to disagree about the Works. They have virtually the same menu as Nick's, so to call one a gyros specialist is not accurate. I have lived or worked in Niles for almost 40 years. Nick's is not even in the discussion when debating where to get the best gyros. The battle is between the Works and Wally's in Park Ridge. Wall'y is head and shoulders above the rest.

If you are happy with the service at Nick's which is ALWAYS "indifferent" then I am sure you will not have a problem at this place, Alex's.

Hamburgers

I love the burgers at Grandpa's in Glenview. They also have great chili. A great fast food burger is at Paradise Pup in Des Plaines.

delivery in grayslake area?

I recently moved to Hainesville from Cook County. I loved that there were always tons of places that delivered food. I am having trouble finding places that deliver anything but pizza or Chinese. Does anybody have any suggestions for restaurants that deliver? Thanks!!

Looking for any unturned stones in or near Gurnee

Country Dog is pretty good. I would go back. The place on Washington and Hainesville Road is called Big Jack's. The beef isn't too bad for this area. The prices are a bit high.

It's not in Lake County, but Chasers in Niles has a great philly grinder. In fact all of their grinders are fabulous. The best sandwiches I have ever had. Great skirt steak sandwich, too.

WIll be in Morton Grove 3 days, any Recs ?

If you are looking to experience CHICAGO food, go to Superdawg. From Morton Grove, just go west on Dempster to Milwaukee Ave (Rte 21) and go left (South) Take Milwaukee Ave. about 4 miles just past Devon. On your left hand side will be world famous Superdawg. It is a drive in. You sit in your car and they bring the food to you in your car. They have burgers, Chicago style dogs, shakes and a few other things. It won't work for your large group, but it is a true Chicago experience and will take you about 10-15 minutes to get there.

Also, for a more formal dinner, Chicago is known for its Steakhouses. There is a great one in nearby Rosemont which is where O'hare airport is located. From Morton Grove you would take Dempster west to River Road and go left. Gibson's is right across from the Rosemont Convention Center about 5 miles down on River Road. They have fantastic steaks and that type of food.

I f you want Chicago, you need to have pizza, steak or hot dogs. You CAN NOT get a hot dog anywhere else in the world like ours. People advertise Chicago Dogs in other places, but they never compare!
