The Restaurant That Keeps Me Coming Back...

My favorite go to restaurant is called Al Dente located on Irving Park near Pulaski. It is a little off the beaten path, but it is probably one of the best restaurants you will go to in Chicago. This restaurant is one where you will never get bored. The owner Javier Perez has worked in some of the highest rated restaurants in Chicago such as Spiaggia and Cibo Matta. As a result, the cuisine offered at Al Dente is a little eclectic.

Smoque BBQ

Classic barbeque served in a hip, neighborhood environment. Smoque is known for their tender, slow-cooked, beef brisket and fall-off-the-bone ribs. Enjoy macaroni & cheese, corn bread, baked beans, and skin-on French fries done right. Sauces are served on the side, so you can enjoy the full flavor of the meat. BYOB, and an excellent carry-out option as well.

La Villa

A family owned business since 1972, La Villa starts with fantastic pizza and adds homemade family recipes to create a truly Italian-American experience. The family friendly decor is comfortable and service is attentive. The dishes are plentiful and priced right. The restaurant also offers a full-bar as well as live music Thursday through Saturday.
