My daughter visited here a few years while on a college visit, so nothing stood in our way from coming on our family vacation to Chicago. The drive from downtown was hard, but the food is worth the drive. Portions are large! Service is great!...More

First time visit, will go again. Huge servings. Nice Decor and ambience. Staff was very attentive. If you are sitting by the windows you may see planes arriving or landing on the runway.

Been dining there for years. Always outstanding food and service! HOWEVER, the place could use a little capitol investment. Booths, tables and seating are showing their age. Finish falling off the furniture. Plates and flatware showing it's age as well. DON'T MESS THIS UP!

Without a doubt, the world's best chicken tenders - you could get an order of these and eat nothing else. Great salads and burgers, located on the Schaumburg airport. Parties of more than 2 have to wait a long time - 2 people should get...More

Don’t mind traveling the distance to eat at Pilot Pete. The food is freshly prepared and, it’s the taste, that keeps me coming back. The amount of food is so enormous; I always have to take food home.
