Most Popular Restaurants in Elk Grove Village

April 14, 2018 Chanda Heide

Elk Grove Village is a village located in northeastern Illinois adjacent to O'Hare International Airport and is a near northwest suburb, touching the city of Chicago. It is one of the Chicago metropolitan area's principal villages due to its large industrial park, located on the eastern border of the village. The village is located primarily in Cook County with a small portion in DuPage County. The population was 33,127 at the 2010 census. As the name suggests, Elk Grove Village is home to a small herd of elk kept in a grove at the eastern edge of the Busse Woods forest preserve for which the grove is named. Elk are not native to the area but were brought by train from Montana by an early resident, William Busse, in the 1920s. The elk are currently maintained by the Chicago Zoological Society veterinary staff and the Busse Woods Forest Preserve wildlife biologists.

Lou Malnati's Pizzeria

Reviewed By Chris M - Elk Grove Village, Illinois

Lou Malnati was a pioneer in creating Chicago deep dish pizza. A fantastic butter crust, fresh toppings and great service! Great for families, as well as couples.

We frequently visit the one in Schaumburg. Located on the corner of two busy intersections and in a building that was once a very large home. Unique in its atmosphere and decor.

A nice relaxing bar area while waiting for your order, or waiting for friends.

Just a great place for a great dinner, spent with great friends!

Lou Malnati's Pizzeria

Reviewed By Dave P - Costa Mesa, United States

Calling it pizza is a misnomer.

Who the heck makes pizza without sauce?! I specifically asked for specific order any cool included sauce.

I had a pie delivered to my hotel room it took over an hour and 15 minutes for delivery.

I tried to call the company right away but because it was after midnight they were not answering phones.

With over 100,000 views, I try to be very objective with my reviews. I feel I’m being more than fair with this one. Even the spinach tasted like MOLD!

Like I said, “worst pizza ever!”

Reviewed By Frances M - Itasca, Illinois

We went to Tree Guys right before it was to close for the night. Didn't know if they served Brandy Alexander or Brandy Ice drinks, but got a real nice surprise. The bartender was kind enough to make us an absolutely great Brandy Ice big enough to share. Great service along with great food! Ya gotta try it, you'll like it!

Retro Bistro

Hello! We are a family owned Bistro! We have been in Mount Prospect for 26 years And recently opened another Retro Bistro in Crytstal Lake IL! Along with our son CJ ! Next generation! Hope you check us out! We are a "nicer" place without the higher pricing and stuffiness! Fun bar! Happy hour specials everyday!

Reviewed By MidwestFred - United States

This was our first-time visit to this store-front restaurant, and were we ever pleasantly surprised! We stopped in for lunch.and were promptly greeted by very friendly staff and seated.

The ambiance is what one would expect from a French bistro - simply-decorated, hardwood floors, and french music.

There are daily specials, and a price-fixe menu at lunch for $25. We split a pear salad, and both had the specials - a beef skewer, and chicken breast. Both had delicious sauces and were accompanied by fresh-cut vegetables.

There is an extensive wine list and dessert elections, which unfortunately we did not partake becasue this was a quick lunch for us. But we will definitely return, and recommend Retro Bistro for authentic French dining in Chicago's northwest suburbs!.

The wife and I stopped here for lunch after leaving Church at noon. Had my usual Chili Dog with cheese and onion. For me this is the best thing on their menu! Also had a tamale, fries and a Coke. Everything was very good which did not come as a surprise. Excellent place to stop which goes to show why this place is always busy!

Buona

Buona is a quick casual restaurant chain that features Original Italian Beef, Pizza, Burgers, Hot Dogs, Sandwiches and Salads. The first Buona restaurant was established in Berwyn, IL in 1981, by Buonavolanto Patriarch Joe Buonavolanto, Sr. He was among the group of Italian Americans who perfected Chicago's original Italian beef. The menu is a blend of old-school Chicago classics and next-generation menu choices - made from scratch with fresh ingredients. While the menu has expanded, the original beef recipe has not been compromised - for the three generations of Buonavolantos who are active in the company, compromise and quality are never uttered in the same breath.

Reviewed By Allen21096 - Chicago, Illinois

We stopped at Buona for a light, late afternoon lunch. We had a 3 yr. old and a 1 1/2 yr. old, and they do have some kids' menu items. There is plenty of parking and the restaurant is very clean. The staff is very efficient and friendly. We ordered a sausage pizza. We also ordered two kids' beef sandwiches. I've found the kids' beef sandwiches the perfect size, plus you can have them dipped and with peppers. Everything was very tasty and the fries and the chips that came with the beef sandwiches were also very good.

Wildberry Pancakes and Cafe

Reviewed By alexanderblake - Chicago, IL

One of the most valuable characteristics in today's society is consistency. Consistency in business practices, consistency in personal responsibilities, consistency in showing up ready to take on the world -- even, albeit slightly unrelated, the consistency of grandma's homemade pasta sauce!

Wildberry is consistently amazing. While you will almost always wait 30+ minutes for breakfast it IS ABSOLUTELY WORTH IT. The food is always delicious - picture perfect in its delivery with just the right mixture of meal vs. plate. The coffee bar in the lobby / waiting area allows you to grab a smoothie or a macchiato while you wait for your table, and it consistently delivers a treat for your taste buds.

I know what I like, so I always order Eggs Benedict. The poached eggs are wonderfully done, leaving a yoke that cascades out like caramel on a sundae. My wife orders some variation of waffle/pancake adorned with beautiful fruits and berries, gently smothered in velvety maple syrup.

It's such a great place that we had our very first breakfast date there we had a server named Choli, then came back (we live in Texas now) two years later, engaged. We had Choli again! THEN, we came back the following year married, and Choli remembered us!

With family still living in Schaumburg, Wildberry is a staple we do not skip on our trips home. Ever.

So don't be deterred by other reviews complaining about the wait. You'll wait an hour outside Richard Walker's for food that isn't even a fraction as good as Wildberry. Come hungry, grab a mocha while you wait, and enjoy your new breakfast tradition: Wildberry.
