Best ice cream around. Worth the wait in the long summer lines. Get some and bring home a pint. There is always a flavor of the day. Opening day is always anticipated and hard to wait for.

We were out with friends to help one couple celebrate their anniversary. They choose Nats and made reservation for 8. There was no problem with separate checks and no automatic gratuity added because there were 8 of us. Our table was ready at reservation time requested. Our waitress took our drink orders and returned after a few minutes with our drinks. She asked if we wanted appetizers. One couple ordered one. They also brought 8 pieces of bread, while it was good they didn't ask or offer any more. The waitress took our dinner orders. Many different food items was selected. From Jambolaya, to filet to shrimp and scallops. My wife ordered ordered the coconut shrimp, my wife praised how good they were. I and a friend ordered the Citrus Shrimp. I found the shrimp cooked perfectly the dish was bland. No taste of garlic, or citrus. It had angel hair pasta topped with, tomatoes, spinach, and a light sauce. The pasta did not take any flavor of the sauce and as I said it was bland maybe some grated cheese might have help but none was offered. One of our friends also pointed that the second dish of the Citrus Shrimp looked like there was more. The dish did appear fuller. The scallops order seemed normal and they were about the size of a silver dollar and about 1/2" thick, there were about 4 or 5 on her plate. She appeared disappointed with serving size because of the lack of leftovers. Everyone else enjoyed there meals. I felt some of the items were over priced, I will really have to think about going again.

Despite being "overly breakfast" you can enjoy a descent sandwich, salad, soup or burger at Egg Haven... Some new tea and cold beverage options are now on a separate menu...This regular staff working fast n friendly, so enthusiastic, always makes the dinning experience a triumph...tip them well as the prices have gone up but not the quality of your meal...Opa Pete!

We dropped in for some of their famous cinnamon bread. When we hit the door, nobody was at the counter. I made a loud "DING" sound trying to get someone, and someone finally came, and put a bell on the counter.
They had every dessert I could imagine, and then some. Fortunately, we were there for the cinnamon bread, which did not disappoint. Good stuff - buy two loaves. It goes annoyingly fast once you open it up.

Home to America's favorite Chicago-style hot dogs, Italian beef, burgers, salads, and chocolate cake.
It doesn't matter which Portillo's a person chooses, the hot dog or beef sandwich is a taste of Chicago and necessary for an exChicagoan to have several times during their visit!

Sweet Dreams cupcakes and cream cheese desserts are a staple at many of my parties. The cupcakes have a soft cream center and are hand made daily. I have had the lunch food once and have no complaints, but when I have a special occasion, I go get cupcakes. I have had a few catering items like meatballs too. Everything was good.

It's great to have a brewery in town. They have lots of interesting beers and offer custom or themed flights. Their pizza is a highlight, especially the chef's choice, which can be anything creative. It's an industrial look that encourages informality. Kids are welcome. Nice use of an old car showroom.

Taxco Restaurant is a Family Restaurant with a Mexican cuisine and with Tequila bar, we are a Vegetarian and Vegan Friendly with great choices , Kids menu, we also offer banquents and caterings, with a full bar service
We really love this place. Great atmosphere and company. Food is delicious, not overly cheesed or spiced. The salsa is fresh and has a great kick. The refried beans are authentic and delicious. I have had the enchiladas most recently, but my favorite is the pollo el cilantro. Real margaritas too. We enjoy the tequila bar side of the restaurant as it's brighter and more action.

My elderly mother and I enjoy lunch here regularly. We have always been more than satisfied with the food quality. The service could be improved, but is not bad. The one improvement I would suggest, which may sound petty, is that they need better quality paper napkins especially with the type of food they serve. Overall, excellent food and good service. They get busy on the weekends and parking can be an issue.
