Mago Grill & Cantina

New location.

Reviewed By schjul - Plainfield, Illinois

Have visited this restaurant a few times and really enjoy. The sangria is wonderful as well as the margaritas! The chicken burrito is my favorite along with a side of the Corn - so good! The table side guacamole looks good but I have never had it as my husband does not like it. The Fajitas are also very good and taco salad is huge!Fun atmosphere and usually pretty busy!

Papa's Pizza Place

Reviewed By Mike H - Plainfield, Illinois

Lived in Woodridge for 18 years before moving. We had always ordered to go now we live 25 minutes away we eat there. After all theses years the pizza still rocks. Love the double decker. Prices are good. Seems like a good local place as the wait staff knows there customer. This is much better than the Bolingbrook location. I have a $10 credit there and probably won't use it as we rather drive to Woodridge

White Fence Farm Restaurant

Reviewed By georgerE9770EQ - Schaumburg, Illinois

We go here quite often after church. It is always packed ( they serve thousands of pieces of chicken every day), but this time the family came to town with kids, grand kids, significant others etc.When the question came about where to go for dinner, the answer was easy. Where else can you get a very good 4 piece chicken dinner with all the trimmings, except for desert, for $15.50 per person?
They have been doing this for over 75 years and now have several carry our locations in the area, and the quality is always the same.
Several times we have been there and we did order steak, and it was very good. However, this time it was chicken all around, and the kids had enough from several orders split. There is a child's portion as well, which we did not use. We all did order desert which was very good and just enough. Several had drinks; but, even with that you would not have believed the low cost for the large number of people fed. And everyone had a very good meal with great service in a family type surrounding, and no one was pushing us out for the table as we stayed a while for a good family time. There are plenty of rooms used, so the large number of people being feed does not seem that large.

Portillo's Hot Dogs

Home to America's favorite Chicago-style hot dogs, Italian beef, burgers, salads, and chocolate cake.

Reviewed By Terry S - Green Valley

We normally love Portillo’s, but our trip through the drive-thru really messed up our evening. We ordered two sandwiches, fries and two chopped salads. When we got to the window, the ‘MANAGER’ reviewed the order with us, pretending to look in the bag to verify. Isn’t he supposed to check each item?? He’s the manager. At least that’s what his shirt says. We traveled 20 minutes home and there is a salad missing. Where is the quality control, Portillo’s-Bolingbrook. Your ‘manager’ screwed up...He didn’t check the bag! My only regret aside from checking the bag myself was not taking a photo of this dude and posting it on this review.

Found this place on-line and we were not disappointed. Loved their breakfast offerings. Different selections and combinations from your average pancake house.
Combo dishes of pancakes and eggs and wonderful omelets. Try the avocado on toast. Service with a smile. Crowded but we got right in as a party of two.

We love to stop here for lunch and dinner when traveling from the suburbs to Normal. We all enjoy the soup (cream of chicken rice, cream of spinach, chicken noodle, etc.).

Also not to miss is the creamy garlic dressing. Fresh garlic!!!

The staff is super gracious- especially Tara (i hope I remembered her name correctly)!

We're GB rewards customers and stop in about 2-3 times a month. Seasonal beers really good. Had a wonderful seasonal pancetta pizza- looking for more cheese. Sausage plates for Octoberfest nice, but wanting more options. Time to change up sandwiches. Garlic OR sweet potato fries the bomb! Eating at the bar nice too-bartenders remember their clients & drinks.

This is my husband’s favorite Bolingbrook restaurant. A good start is ordering a beverage and savoring the complimentary pickles while perusing the menu. He loves the bison filet. I enjoy the bison burger, but my current favorite entree item is the cedar plank salmon. It’s wonderful! The red beans and rice is a filling, tasty soup. If there is anyway to afford the calories, definitely order the apple crisp. It is amazing and certainly large enough to share.

The service and atmosphere have been consistently great. Kudos to John and Megan, two of our favs.

Cheddar's

Reviewed By SantaRon - Sun City, Arizona

Staying at a motel near Cheddar's and we went there for a light dinner. Decided to split the chicken tender dinner and they said no problem, not even an extra charge. Best chicken tenders ever and great seasoned fry's and cold slaw. Our server Jennifer was friendly, fast, and accommodating to our requests.
If we lived here we would make this a regular place to eat.

Cheddar's Scratch Kitchen

Reviewed By Greer M - Springfield, Illinois

We specifically went to cheddars as we are from Springfield and ours was sadly closed years ago. We have been craving chicken tenders for some time! We had excellent service by monse is her name I believe and the girl she was training! 5 stars for them! Food was so reasonably priced too! Was a little concerned with it being in the Chicago area that it would be double the price of what we were used to but so affordable and it was just as good as we remembered! We will make another trip up again sometime! Shopping all day and cheddars on the way home was an amazing Saturday!
