“A great casual place”

Hillside Restaurant
Ranked #24 of 65 Restaurants in Grayslake
Restaurant details
Reviewed 30 December 2016 via mobile

Hillside is just a good place for consistently delicious food from breakfast to lunch. The breakfasts are typical as are the sandwiches. They also serve alcohol. If you're looking for a great breakfast or lunch in a light and airy venue, the Hillside is your restaurant.

My very first and last visit! The gyros was very, very dry. In fact it not only looked and tasted very dry, I thought that it probably had been part of a frozen package of gyros meat and not freshly cut from a gyros rotisserie.

I ended leaving most of the gyros on my plate as I found it unpalatable.

The platter included a few pre-cut pieces of fried pita bread, small plastic containers of tsatiki sauce and cole slaw (?) And a handful of french fries.

Will not be back.

I have been here several times for lunch (only ordered salads and they were delicious) This time I came for lunch but ordered breakfast and it was wonderful. I ordered a custom omelette, and it was so good. Cheap to eat there. I really like it. It is not fine dining but it is perfect for a quick meal at a cheap price. I will for sure be back.

Reasonably priced food. Their pancakes are excellent. They have changed up their bacon though and it looks and tastes like microwave bacon. Their bread basket is a great idea but it's hard and old. They say delivered fresh everyday by the bakery but it's old. Like knock on the wood old. Please change your bakery. I had a hot dog there and they put it in a Vienna style bun not hotdog bun and again. Really old dry bread. The place could use a facelift. Make sure the air vents above your head are screwed in. I don't mean to be so negative because the food is good. But a couple of changes and a facelift would boost customers. Updated menu to address healthier eating and younger patrons should help too.

Though the staff is very friendly, this place is slipping. From the lengthy menu full of choices, I chose an open face turkey sandwich. Though it had melted cheese, it was dry and tasteless. The dining room is clean and OK. The bathrooms are worn, stalls rusty and stinky. But folks don't go here for the bathroom. I think folks enjoy breakfast better here.
