Blueberry Hill Breakfast Cafe

49 S La Grange Rd

Reviews:
I have been to the one in Oak brook and the one in Darien. By far this one is the best place to go . I have been going there for 4 years and the only reason that I tried the other two locations is mainly because I moved closer to Darien , but next time I feel like very berry french toast I am going to La grange. Chris is great, he goes around the tables and talks to everyone , greet them and welcome them, makes you feel like home. Food is great and price is very reasonable. On weekend there will be a wait but it is all worth it . It is a great place for kids too, warm and cozy , staff is great and service is suburb . Food comes in large quantity and two can share a plate, or you can take the rest home . LOVE IT

The Dinner Club

26 S La Grange Rd
La Grange, 60525
Reviews:
So happy to have found the Dinner Club! My friend introduced me to this place and I'm so glad I finally got to give it a try. I only wish I'd found out about it sooner! It is very nicely set up and clean, the ladies working the kitchen are so helpful, the assembly of meals is simple and fun. The meals are fresh and delicious. Having all these meals already assembled in the freezer has been a lifesaver with having a new baby, home improvements, unpredictable work schedules and other craziness. It is worth a try! Dinner Club is fun and helps simplify your life (especially with time spent with groceries and cooking considered).
I'm so glad I found this place!! I live alone, on a very tight budget, and it's been a lifesaver for me. Here are a few positives: * This place is run incredibly well. It's just no stress. When you step up to a station you have everything you need (ingredients, measuring utensils, bowls, etc). And when you're done the employees clean and re-set the station for the next person so fast so you're rarely standing there waiting. * Do the math. It really is cheaper than it seems and, if you're on a tight budget, it's a great way to eat meals with lots of ingredients and spices without buying them and then wasting the leftovers. * Its very clean! The owner is very mindful of keeping things clean throughout the process and I appreciate that. * It's a fun day! Bring some friends and make the most of it - both Dinner Club and downtown LaGrange. I've been going to Dinner Club regularly for about 6 months now and I have no desire to stop. It really is worth trying!
I've been going to the Dinner Club nearly once a month (I've skipped only a couple, probably around vacations/holidays/illness) for a little over a year. I get a little evangelical when I talk to people about this place, because I do feel it's made a big positive change in my life. I'm going to refrain from repeating everything here that previous reviewers have already covered. I generally get at least 12 meals, sometimes a couple extra, plus a few sides. The food is great, the people are very nice & accommodating & helpful. I like the ability to customize some dishes if you know your family has certain food preferences. (It's occurred to me to bring my own onion powder to substitute onions when those are in a recipe because my kids have texture issues with onions, but I've never remembered to do so, so either I omit them when prepping or the kids pick them out. Not a big deal.) I consider this a great value for anyone who either doesn't love to cook or feels too busy to cook as often as one might like, and has decided to try to reduce the family's reliance on takeout or frozen/processed/convenience foods. No, it isn't cheap, but once you take into account all of the time and stress saved vs. planning/shopping for/preparing all this food yourself, I think you're likely to consider it well worth the cost. And my family definitely eats more healthy, well-balanced meals more often than we did before I discovered the Dinner Club. The one big change I would love to see them make would be to offer an upgrade option for those of us trying to cut back on our consumption of factory farmed animals. I'd consider this place virtually perfect if it were possible to substitute free-range/organic meat & poultry for the standard meats. However, they're obviously running a successful business doing things just the way they are, so I tend to assume they wouldn't be interested in taking on such complications and have never even spoken to them about this idea. That, along with my recognizing that this would likely affect the experience of a fairly small number of potential customers, would prevent my knocking off a star for the fact that they don't do this, as great an idea as I think it would be.

Tates Original Old Fashioned Ice Cream Shop

25 S Ashland Ave
La Grange, 60525
Reviews:
I think Tate's has a wide selection of ice cream to chose from and the establishment is neat and clean. The ice cream flavors we chose were very good. My complaints are mostly with the way the establishment is run. We entered the store as a birthday party was beginning. With the party going on, there is no place for a patron to sit and staff noticed this and did not offer a solution. Furthermore, my young children were mistaken as birthday party members and given a craft project to work on, only to have it rudely taken away with the comment "oh you're not part of the party." Honestly, I would have bought the craft rather than hurt a small child's feelings. Meanwhile, owner is paranoid about children looking at the small toys for sale in the store. Why bother to sell them then? Finally, there are signs all over the store discouraging you from paying with a credit or debit card due to the owner's fees and another warning you can't use the bathroom! Really? I won't be back.
Nestled comfortably within the beautiful streets that are downtown La Grange, lies this old-fashioned, one-of-a-kind ice cream shop. It's something that you can't find just anywhere. I moved into La Grange two weeks ago and visited Tates for the first time yesterday. Unfortunately for my figure, I believe I will be making weekly trips to this joint. Let's start with the ice cream. What's that? You make every last flavor right in that tiny shop?! I tried the pistachio almond and an Irish Mocha something that had a rich chocolatey, coffee taste. I wish that generous double scoop could have lasted forever. I wasn't terribly daring in my flavor choice, however, there are plenty of flavors to choose from. Some of the flavors are suggestions by customers brought to life! All fresh and homemade by the incredible, Maria. The new owner, Maria, is quite possibly sweeter than the confections she spends hours concocting in her store. The minute I entered Tates, I was greeted by Maria and even got a few moments to chat. It's apparent that she absolutely loves what she does and is dedicated to pleasing her guests. She has trained the rest of her staff very well. They all smile and seem to enjoy their job...well, who wouldn't? It's ice cream! Spending time in Tates is an incredibly relaxing experience. From the minute I walked in, I was taken away from the hustle and bustle of life outside those walls. The old-fashioned school desks, combined with the shelves of old-fashioned candy and sweets took me away. The decor is spot on and I couldn't help but smile the entire time I was there.

Isn’t That Sweet

21A S La Grange Rd
La Grange, 60525
Reviews:
So glad Isn't That Sweet has come to downtown La Grange. The croissants are buttery and flaky, the cupcakes velvety with a creamy frosting, the tarts oh so tasty! My husband is thrilled they have gluten-free tasty treats! No more sacrifice. They also serve Metropolis coffee which is fantastic. What are you waiting for?
Very clean and nice inside, but not much of a selection when it comes to cupcakes. I have been to cupcake shops in the past and they tend to have at more then five favors to choose from. The item I choose was not great either I have had better and better from the backery down the block (from scratch) and the other one down the block from Starbucks.
What a great place for a sweet tooth. The cup cakes, macaroons, and other desserts are wonderful. And if you are there on a Saturday morning, the fresh baked warm croissants are delicious and no one in our group refrained from seconds or thirds. The coffee was good and we felt very comfortable lingering for a while over coffee, croissants, and conversation. We were in town for my mother`s birthday and had to get ready for the party. The owner, Nicole, set us up with a number of delicacies for the party and the reaction of all of the guests was the same as ours. We would wholeheartedly recommend Isn`t That Sweet to satisfy that sweet tooth or any party needs. In speaking with the owner, Nicole told us that she could provide for parties or meetings of large groups if she is contacted a day or two in advance and let us tell you that she has a quite a repetoire of goodies to choose from.

Cafe Calbay

24 W Burlington Ave
La Grange, 60525
Reviews:
This place has a good vibe with 20th century Americana with counter service and tables and booths. The quality of the food is a bit above average, especially compared to some of the other offerings in the area like Bakers' Square or Blueberry Hill. Looking forward to going back.
Yummy breakfast in a cute old-style diner setting. Had vegetarian omelet with hash browns with nice golden brown finish and pancakes on the side. Want to pay attention to their specials next time and also go for lunch. Very friendly service.
LOVE Calbay! Its a cozy little 1950's feeling diner downtown LaGrange across from the train. I never had their Lunch items but their breakfast is DELICIOUS! It's simple and fast. Only con is that their coffee could be better. Also, it gets really crowed on the weekends. The earlier the better or else you'll be waiting a little bit.

Q-BBQ

70 South La Grange Road
La Grange, 60525
Reviews:
We love BBQ, and we love Q. My only complaint is that it's sometimes too crowded, but that's not their fault. They really do their best to ensure groups are sat at the right-sized tables (i.e., no couples at 4-tops). We've had the ribs, pulled pork, pulled chicken, and the southwestern salad. For sides we've had sweet potato fries, regular fries, mac-n-cheese, cole slaw, q puppies. We've enjoyed everything we've ordered. It's also very kid-friendly. Our daughter loves the chicken nuggets - she's a fussy eater and she always eats well at Q. It's a great value for the price and we always look forward to going back!
Finally, I thought. A BBQ place in the "Burbs" that offers up a range of BBQ that anyone who loves BBQ would salivate for. From Texas Brisket to Baby Back Ribs, to Texas Smoked Sausage and Pulled Pork and Chicken- there is something for everyone at Q BBQ. Pull open the front door of this smallish restaurant located just down from the La Grange theater and the smell will hit you. No really- hit you. You will smell like BBQ for the rest of the day. I think they need a more supportive exhaust system or something as "Eau de smoke" was not really what I was going for. That aside, we walked up to the counter and ordered; pulled pork sandwich with "fresh cut fries" and hush puppies for me, Memphis Chicken wings for him along with the two sides of mac and cheese and coleslaw (they were out of the green beans). You are given a number, find a seat and your food is brought out to you in short order. The ambiance is more fast food than sit down style. A roll of paper towel is on the table along with 4 different sauces. A small pail hangs overhead as a light fixture. And a stack of wood rests outside the front door as a "cue" that something smokey is going on. We grabbed a great table in the front window. While my sandwich was good (large soft roll and tender pork) it wasn't anything notable. Even after I tried all the sauces on the table (Carolina vinegar, Spicy BBQ, Sweet BBQ and S. Carolina Mustard sauce) the sandwich still was pretty basic. And those fries? Eh. They had been held too long and were soggy. Hush puppies really aren't my thing either but they seem to come with everything you order. The Memphis wings were a little better but the mac and cheese side was not good (more noodles than cheese and the Cheez-Its crumbled on top did nothing to help) Lunch for two ran $18 which was pretty cheap given the quantity of the food. Parking is easy (hey- it's the burbs!) with a free lot behind the restaurant. Q BBQ is a solid choice. And since there really isn't a decent BBQ place out this way I would go back for take out the next time I'm "jones-ing" for some ribs and too lazy to run into the city.
Gave Q BBQ a second chance today and that was the right thing to do. Both choices of meat we ordered: brisket and pulled pork were delicious, melting in the mouth and perfectly flavored. The hush puppies were also really really really good. Overall, good experience, good food and all for about $10 for a plate (meat, 2 sides, hush puppy). Yep, good lunch.

Di Nico’s Pizza

Reviews:
Five bucks for a slice of pizza as big as your head. This place isn't bad. Not sure it's my #1 local spot to pick up a piece of pie, but it's quick and decent. Perfect after a hangover if you're brave enough to leave the house. Whoopsie! I'll have to try the gelato everyone's raving about next time.
My husband and I are from Columbus OH and we were visiting my husband's sister and her husband who live in Westchester, but use to live in LaGrange. There was a party of 6 in our group and we stopped in Dinico's. My husband is a pizza connosieur and he is very picky about pizza. We ordered a large sausage,pepperoni pizza, chicken fingers, and my sister-in-law ordered a sandwich. To all our surprise, everything was good. We liked it so much we specifically made a point to tell the owner just how much we enjoyed the food. The owner, (I can't remember his name, but he was young and CUTE, and very personable). The next time we visit, we will definitely go back to Dinico's.
My husband has been craving deep dish pizza. Dinico's sounded like a good option that just opened close by. At first they didn't deliver to Stickney but then said yes. Thanks! Pizza was ok. Hubby wanted more of a cornmeal crust. Overall, ok. Giordano's still probably makes the best around.

Moy Goy Inn

719 W Hillgrove Ave
La Grange, 60525
Reviews:
Hands down the better Chinese food in the area. Moy Goy might define hole in the wall dining but it doesn't adhere to the preconceptions of it. I ordered orange chicken, and that's exactly what I got, for 11.50 (the large order) I got a brown paper bag with at least three meals worth of rice and chicken. The orange sauce tasted like they made it in house, a pleasant change from your standard sauce, certainly made with fresh orange. It is cash only, but the service was quick and to the point, but my order wasn't hard to fill. Compared to other Chinese food in the area, this is the place I will be going back to.
There is no mistaking Moy Goy as anything but a carry out joint. There are just a couple of tables inside and the decor is utilitarian... no ambiance to speak of. As others have noted, it's cash only and Eben if you call ahead, they don't begin cooking before you arrive. In slower times of the day, I probably would just show up and order there. I ordered the Mongolian Beef lunch special. The portion size was in the ginormous category. I think even a person with a big appetite could get leftovers for dinner from this. The food itself was very good. The beef had some real heat - not watered down much at all for the American palate. The egg roll was also large and good. It was filled with cabbage, tiny shrimp, small pieces of pork, and a little bit of peanut butter. A nice example of the genre. My only complaint about the food is that the Mongolian Beef was pretty salty, and there is no way to get that horse back into the barn. I also wish they had an online menu and began cooking before arrival. Oh yeah, cash only joints are thankfully becoming rare. They might see an increase in business if they start accepting them. Overall, a very solid takeout option. I definitely recommend it if you have a few bucks in your wallet.
Absolute best Chinese I've ever had anywhere in the states! Cash only carry out only, but so worth it! I'm waiting for them to open right now so I can call in an order of sesame chicken and pork fried rice. My family have been loyal customers for close to 30 years and will continue to be for many years to come.
