Hope this place finds room to expand. Unique offerings were such a pleasant surprise. Tried my first quinoa dish and will have again. Husband loved the mushroom soup so much we brought home 3 to-go bowls. The pork schnitzel was wonderfully "light" for a schnitzel....More

Babcock's is a fantastic local restaurant in Lombard. They feature a few interesting beer selections in addition to a menu packed with delicious foods. The staff is very nice and the manager/owner is a visible presence during most visits. Highly recommended.
