Chef Gene is awesome. He has catered 3 of our parties and my daughters weding. I have known him for a long time. I will never hire anyone else. He is very creative. The sandwiches are made with high quality meats (the roast beef is great). The fish fry and BBQ Fridays are delectable. Try one of the daily soup choices. He makes great soup.
Best monthly fish fry ever. Everything is great. It's a "must try" place. Perfect for lunch with friends.
This is a simple and quaint restaurant but the food is top notch. I had the haddock and it was cooked to perfection.

Country Donuts

3091 US Rt 20
Elgin, 60124
Reviews:
Love this place! So much better than any national chain. Everything is made fresh on site and not brought on frozen. My kids love when I walk in with a box of donuts. Staff is great, friendly and love their customers.
I'm so happy that this place is so close to the house! Country Donuts is our donut breakfast go-to and they have the best donuts in the area, hands-down! I have yet to be disappointed by a single donut and each one is amazing. I might be pretty plain-Jane about it, but my favorites are the sugar raised and honey dipped. Both SO good. The seasonal apple cider and pumpkin and great options too. The only other thing I've ordered here besides donuts is the coffee. I'm particular to DD (because America runs on it, of course) but the coffee here is good too.
This whole donut discovery is really adding to my waistline. It's a love hate relationship. My co-worker brought some donuts (and when I say some I mean 6 dozen) from here into work the other morning. They had all different seasonal flavors - pumpkin, maple, apple cider, and cinnamon spice. The ones that I tasted were all really good- moist, flavorful, and filling. I have not been to the actual location, but I can vouch for the donuts, and they are delicious!

The best place in Elgin to get breakfast! Cheap and not a long wait for food, no matter how packed it is!
Convenient location and great prices this resturant is your typical "family" diner. The menu item that stands out from all others is their soup.
I love the breakfast. The best thing about this place is that I have been coming here since I could remember. Fast service, a bit crowded but the home feel..... u cant go wrong with Rays !

Jester’s Fast Food

Reviews:
Favorite place to grab a quick bite in the city of Elgin!! Friendly family, food is made to order AND you can get breakfast anytime. The chicken tenders, pizza puff and broiled fish (with American cheese) are to die for. I am absolutely addicted! I call them up and they have my order ready within 15 minutes, I slide by the pick up window, and grab my grub. They have treats for my dog even, I love this place. Keep on cookin!!
Best Greek Salad around!!
Alright- this five stars is a five star for a fast food location- I absolutely love this place as a local fast food joint. I've been here twice now- once I had a fantastic gyro, and the other time I had a delicious burger. I would happily eat either of them again, and will plan to go here again if I have a craving for some delicious bad for me food. The fries are great, the onion rings great, the coleslaw was different, but quite good. I also love the service- everyone who works here is very friendly and pleasant, and the work quickly to make the food fresh- mine is always piping hot, and they run it right out to your car. I would highly recommend this place when you are craving some "junk" food- burgers, hot dogs, gyros, etc.

Big Apple Bagels

Reviews:
Very delicious! I personally just get the Egg bagel with veggie cream cheese, and a coffee...but just got hooked on one of their breakfast sandwiches (the southern tradition). Also awesome muffins, especially the chocolate cheesecake one. Great menu spread and prices are very reasonable. I have been coming here for years, and will continue to. The service is friendly, precise, and quick. Keep up the great work!!!!!
It's good enough that I go regularly, but I don't love it. The staff is hit or miss. One lady (who has been there a long time) is very short, sharp, and doesn't smile. Some of the other staff is nice. Other times they seems confused. They don't dress very professionally, which isn't a big deal, but sometimes I think the younger staff pushes the limits on that. The place also doesn't have a clear line of service- where to order, where to wait for your order, where your order will come up. They run out of bagels and coffee sometimes and the sandwiches are really expensive. That said, I go at least once a month. Decent coffee, good bagels. Just seems like the place needs more structure.
My BFF introduced me to Big Apple Bagels. Whenever someone mention bagels...nothing but Big Apple comes to my mind. Not only are they fresh and delicious but there's variety - something for everyone's taste bud.. And the cream cheese AWESOME!

Spanky’s Gyros III

51 Clock Tower Plz
Elgin, 60120
Reviews:
I more gyro stand down as I hunt for that really good gyro place out here in the burbs and close to work, I tried Spanky's the other day now this is a hole in the wall joint, no thrills kinda grungy looking the walls could use a coat of paint, but you know what at these prices I don't care about looks I care about the food and it was fast, friendly and hot I got a Gyro with no Tomatoes because that's how I roll and a soda, the pita was smokin hot off the grill and the pile of meat was hot and tasty with just a hint of onions and some Tzatziki sauce right down the middle of it oh man my mouth is watering just righting this review may have to make a run to Elgin for lunch even though its not a work day so don't let the looks of the place throw you off go and get some good hot freshly made food and save a buck or two
Good size gyro's with nice tasty meat! Love how the cheese fries are actually topped with ALOT of cheese not like other places where they are stingy with their cheese!
These are hands down my favorite gyros. The key is that they recook the meat on the grill, resulting in a piping hot, slightly crisp gyros. I frequented Spanky's when I lived in the suburbs during college (this was my study meal:)), but now I sadly only make it there ever so often. Give Spanky's a try!
