We loved it here - great vegetarian options, excellent chilis, and fun atmosphere. Dom took great care of us - we're leaving full and more than satisfied!

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...

We have dined here numerous times. The chili offerings are always delicious. 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.

This place has some passable chili -- although not nearly hot (spicy) enough for real chili enthusiasts. Of course it's situated in the heart of downtown Libertyville, so it's catering to more of a family base.

Have eaten here several times, and still haven't tried the chili! The prime rib sandwich is delicious and a great deal at $13, including a side. We also love the Asian tacos and the quinoa salad with shrimp. Nice selection of wine and drink specials. The service is welcoming, attentive and friendly. The atmosphere is beautiful, with clean, well appointed... More
