We visited Bimbos twice in the last month. The first night was a Saturday evening. We had a reservation but still had a little bit of a wait which was no problem. Our waiter ( I can't remember his name) was excellent. We started with the roasted garlic appetizer that was very good. We had the Country Rigatoni that was... More

Great food, great atmosphere, like a hidden gem. Our first time here, and we loved everything we had. The pork chop, chicken picatta, and their homemade Carrot Cake is to die for. Look forward to going back!

I have lived in McHenry for three years now and kept hearing about Bimbo's but never seemed to make it in. Well - finally tried it out and I was very impressed. The decor, the staff, and of course - the food!!! Happy with everything. Get there early for the specials, especially on weekends cause sometimes they go quick.

My husband and I recently moved to Mchenry from the Northwest suburbs and have stumbled across Bimbo's. This is a wonderful little restaurant with amazing Italian food. The staff is service oriented and the place has been here for 60 years. We've been here 3 times already and look forward to returning soon!

Place to go in McHenry for Italian food! Forget the others, they cannot compare. Never have had a bad dish. Four generations of our family love this place! Yes, it is busy, so make a reservation! Have a special request, ask Chef Dominick, and he usually can accommodate your wishes. Definitely a favorite place for my family!
