The Carraig Pub

6119 W 147th St
Oak Forest, 60452
Reviews:
As a native South Sider I've backlashed against the typical Western Ave. bar scene and have claimed the Carraig as an adopted home pub. Good selection/great atmosphere. Bar area can get a little cramped at times, but there's plenty of seating. Super friendly staff and tasty food. I've never failed to have a good time here.
In my opinion, this is the best Irish Pub in the South Suburbs. Always great service, very friendly. (Most of the staff are actually from Ireland) The Guinness is always fresh, and the food is outstanding. The atmosphere is very warm and cozy. Dark wood tables, stained glass decoration on the ceiling and lots of Irish memorabilia. They also have trivia nights on Tuesdays in the Fall and Winter, and live music on the weekends.
I just realized I've never reviewed this place. I have been coming here for 11 years and actually love it more each time I walk through the door. The service is always friendly and there's always a nice mix of people in the crowd. The beer selection is decent and they almost always have a special. Check the website for daily specials. You can't go wrong with anything on the menu. They have a fantastic reuben. Parking can be difficult even in the huge lot. Just keep in mind there are often events going on at gaelic park. Don't let it deter you from going in. I've never had a problem getting a table. This is a perfect spot to relax with friends over some food and drinks. They have live music pretty often as well. I've never had a problem holding a conversation in there even with the music.

Kusinang Pinoy

Reviews:
We came to Chicago for a conference at McCormick Place and have been craving Filipino Food. We live in Georgia and we don't have any Filipino Restaurants close to home, because Filipinos live too far apart to sustain a Pinoy restaurant business. At Kusinang Pinoy we had laing, binagoongan and daing na galunggong. To our delight, each meal came with sabaw ng tinola and white rice and it was perfect! Loved every dish and the owner and servers are uber nice and very hospitable. Highly recommend this place and we are sure we will deliberately drive to this place next time we are in the Windy City!
good quality filipino food here in the southside chicago. our go to place here for filipino food. my tip is come order here early or the variety of food will run out.
Did not know what to expect never having Filipino food before. This place was wonderful awesome and outstanding! The Sunday buffet was 99% meat dishes! And most of that pork done with an amazing love of the food. The staff was wonderful and helpful, explaining the food and checking in on us all the time! Price of only 10.99 per person for buffet can't be beat! They offer Togo specials every day also.

Gaelic Park

Reviews:
Wonderful venue for banquets (had the most perfect wedding there), great Irish Fest every May, great authentic Irish pub to grab a drink and some food with friends, and truly beautiful grounds. My family always enjoys a day or evening at Gaelic Park. The people are warm, friendly, and always up for a bit of chat.
Yes, The parking CAN be drudgerous. But it's the great Irish Fest on Memorial Day weekend is the BIG draw. It ALSO has a REAL nice bar/entertainment complex to the west. They have some decent food stands over there, When the fest exists & A not too bad carnival. I love it when they have the Irish-British candy imports sold at the bar, THAT'S a treat. The stages are pretty good too. The shopping tent is huge, Packed with Irish imports.
Gaelic Park is an amazing venue to have a wedding reception! We couldn't be happier. Jody, Laurie and their team there were sooo great to work with. They truly made our visions come to life and even surpassed them. The room was absolutely beautiful, the food was perfect and everyone was so amazed with the place. They did such a great job. I would recommend this venue for any occasion. Thank you Gaelic Park for making our wedding night so perfect.

Marcotte’s Bar and Grill

15501 Cicero Ave

Reviews:
I have grown to love Marcottes! It feels comfortable and down to earth. The girls (sisters/family) that own the place do a great job. The food is good an reasonably priced. The crowd varies depending on the night, but always a good friendly mix. They host, Bar Bingo (free), trivia night, karaoke, and seasonal events. It can be crazy / off once and a great while, but what place can't? At least you don't have to climb a corporate latter to get an answer, resolve, or make a suggestion. Give it a try, I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!
Small low class bar full of underage looking people. I was propositioned at the bar by a hooker. That does not happen much these days. They place was dirty and they needed way more people working when it gets crowded. There is like no parking as well.
I've been going to Marcottes since they opened & I have NO complaints. The food ROCKS, the employees are AWESOME & I always see friendly faces. I recommend everyone gives them a try. You'll definitely come back for more! :)

Beggars Pizza

15600 S Cicero Ave
Oak Forest, 60425
Reviews:
The server was rude and tried to rush us in and out. The pizza was adequate, not bad, not good, I liked the large cups they give for drinks. The mozzarella sticks had a bit of a strange taste to them, again neither bad nor good. I did like the atmosphere, it was a clean place and fairly large so you're not cramped in. The prices weren't too bad, in the end I guess you get what you pay for. This could've been a 3 or 4 star review with a different server.
I go here for my 'fix' of fine Chicago-style pizza, and they never disappoint. Granted, the dining room experience can be less than thrilling, but at least this business hires teens from the community to give them some experience, so, you take the good with the not-so-good. But the thin crust (not so thin, really) here is fabulous! The deep-dish pie is also a winner, although I have to say that Giordano's in Orland Park will give them a run for their money on the deep-dish style 'za. The pasta is the same story as with every other pizza joint I've ever eaten at, and I've had a career eating at restaurants, so listen up. My experience is that great pizza restaurants make so-so pasta, and when they do make truly fabulous pasta, the pizza suffers for it. I have not yet found one place which can do both with excellence. Not even Papa Joe's, whose New Lenox location should be closed for crimes against the culinary arts! Although the Orland Papa Joe's has really good pizza, Beggar's of Oak Forest surpasses them by a furlong; although in the pasta department, Papa Joe's Orland wins hands down. It is just this kind of anomaly which makes dining out so interesting sometimes! Beggar's in Oak Forest is a benchmark for all the other pizza places in the Chicago Southland because of their service, their staff's great attitudes, and their 'za, which truly deserves the moniker, 'Chicago-style pizza.' I have been to the Palermo's, the Guardi's, all the Mom-and-Pop places and of course, I avoid the commercial crud like the culinary plague that it is! Beggar's has a rich, spicy sauce,their thin crust is thicker than some (but it has to be - to support the giga-loads of ingredients Beggar's puts on their pizzas, like that mountain of cheese!), they are always cooked to perfection, and have the tastiest sausage and highest quality pepperoni I have had yet. The veggies are top-flight, and they don't ever skimp. Suffice it to say, Beggar's makes pizza the way a true pizza-lover would make it in their own home, if only they knew how! Not to disparage Aurelio's, but the stuff they are using just doesn't compare to Beggars' quality and taste at all. Aurelio's may load on the ingredients, but Beggar's loads on the sauce and cheese, and you get plenty of sausage, for example, if that's what you order, even when other ingredients are added. Aurelio's uses a cheaper, lower-gluten flour in their crust, and somehow when they pile on a bunch of ingredients, it never tastes as good as a Beggar's pizza does. So, if you like your pizza with 'abbondanza' then go straight to Beggar's pizza, and get what you are paying for: highest quality ingredients, plenty of them, and fast service. Bravo, Beggar's of Oak Forest! Order online! beggarspizza.com/oak-for…
I been going here on and off for the last few years and it seem to be every time I do I have a complaint. Either they forget something or its made incorrectly. Tonight I ordered spaghetti with butter garlic sauce w/ Italian sausage, we'll to be honest the spaghetti was dry with little to no butter and the sausage was WAY under cooked and still very pink on the inside. Plus the side salad had a lot of browning going on and plus they give you a very hefty helping of bread almost half of a loaf but, they don't send any butter. So I called to see if they would take care of the less then satisfactory food and they said they would deliver me a new order free of charge. Well I've now waited well over and hour and had time to write this review and still now spaghetti. Ps the restaurant is 4 blocks away on the same street as me. So needless to say I don't believe I will be returning to this beggars anymore.

New Horizon Restaurant

14741 Central Ave
Oak Forest, 60452
Reviews:
I've been going here for as long as I can remember. Definitely my favorite restaurant. The owner, George, is always happy to greet customers at the door. I love the new decorations! The food is decently priced and it tastes great! Never had any problems here. The staff is always helpful. I plan on returning for many years.
Since the same woman (employee) is hell bent on basically harassing my wife for no reason whatsoever, she also flagged my previous review and it was removed. (She's one of the people who posted a five star review here, in case you were wondering.) So here's what you need to know about the restaurant as a restaurant and outside of my "personal issue": old-tasting bread. Watery "cream" soups (& I love cream soup). Too much money, not enough food. Appetizers are outrageously expensive for the amount of food received. Additionally--and perhaps the worst offense of all--they are unable to make a simple grilled cheese sandwich without burning it to a crisp. That's right...plan on scraping off half the bread unless you like your grilled cheese very...toasty. This seems to be especially if you're ordering carry out. Maybe because you can't send it back or request for it to be remade, I don't know. Anyway, not worth your hard-earned money.
Had breakfast here The other day with my family, thought I'd try something new! They have an Italian sausage supreme omelet. . . I was a lil weary at first but was so glad I tried it! It was delicious! Our waitress was really nice and attentive to our needs. :) prices are average. It is a nice cozy spot to have lunch with family and friends and they even have take out!
