The food was very good and they have many very unique chili's. I will go back but there are so many good restaurants in Libertyville it is hard to chose which one to enjoy.

I'm never disappointed here! I love the decor! I like the fact that you can just seat yourself. I love sitting by the window and people watch. I recommend the chorizo egg rolls for starters. I ordered the almond crusted chicken salad it was tasty! I took the picture after I started my meal sorry...

This time I tried the lettuce wrap with steak.(appetizer) Was basically a piece of lettuce, with a thin , good quality slice of steak with some diced tomatoes and cukes I actually found this quite boring and lacking in flavor. This definitely needed some type of sauce. Husband... More

My husband and I have been here on several occasions and the food is consistently very good. One of my favorites is the Prime Rib Sandwich and spicy jalapeno coleslaw.
