I was hungry for some breakfast and wanted to try some local flavor, so I quickly found this on Yelp. There were good reviews and it was within a mile of where I was, so I told my husband we had to go. I'm glad we stopped in! For a Sunday morning at 10am, this place was packed! There was barely standing room and there was a large group in front of us waiting. Since it was just us two, we had the option of sitting at the counter but the stools were rather low to the ground and I was in a dress, so we opted to wait for a table. When one was finally available, the waitress kept apologizing for how long we had to wait. Really, it wasn't that bad and we got to see tons of menu items go by to help aid our decision making. (Everything looked so, so good.) They had several omelets on special that day and they all sounded good. I knew we were going to have a large lunch, so I opted to order a half order of biscuits and gravy (B&Gs). My husband ordered hash browns and bacon. The food arrived almost immediately. My B&Gs were great! It was one biscuit cut in half and those halves slathered in gravy with sausage. I love it when my gravy has sausage in it. My husband loved his hash browns and the bacon was bacon. (It could have been a little crispier, but we didn't specify so it was still good.) We finished quickly and paid at the front counter. As we paid, the employee at the front counter even apologized for the wait. Everyone was so nice and accommodating here! I can't wait to come back and try other menu items!
I am not sure why I have been avoiding writing about this hometown restaurant. I have been going here since I was a kid. I remember eating here with my grandma. Well, I lied I think I do know why I haven't written about it, I always wish it was just slightly better. I really want to LOVE this place I really want to give it 5 stars even 4, but all I can give it is a big ol' like with a grand total of 3 stars. There was small town controversy when the new owners bought the restaurant. People thought it was going to really go down hill. There was change and no one wanted it. And in my eyes it is way easier to be a pessimist. Guess what?! I think the new owners are great! they are very hospitable and reasonable. When something is wrong with your meal (rare) they fix it. The servers are nice and super good with kids. Its family owned and you see the family often. There were a handful of times the owner took my kids to the store across the street and bought them m&m's. The amount of times we have been there I swear it wasn't weird. Those are the things that bring us back again and again. Here's what your waiting for; the problem. The building is starting to get a little run down. It really needs some major update! I.E. the "carpet" looks gross in the main dining area and the bathrooms are not something to tell mom about. **Yicks! Is the word for it!** I wish they would do something about the building and it would be such a great place to be. My vote; if your in town and you wanna eat breakfast out, definitely check out this restaurant. You might not even notice the things I do. I have been going here for years, decades actually, and have seen the evolution. The food is reasonably priced and pretty tasty, we will always be back.
I am told by the locals of Somonauk that this is the spot to eat at in the mornings. My friend and I both had burgers, mine, the southwest burger and hers was just a plain cheeseburger. Now as one who has frequented local Chicago burger joints, my palette is spoiled. I took into consideration of this fact, "this isnt Chicago" My southwest burger consisted of what i believe to be a potato bun, which was toasted. In the burger, there were two onion rings topped with mesquite barbeque sauce and garnished with shredded cheddar. The beef patty quality was less than what I am used to but it did work in a pinch. The sides i had were french fries and a cup of Ham and White Bean soup. WHICH WAS DELISH. Their fries were crisp to perfection, i could even say it was probably the best fries i had at a sit down diner. I would most def eat here again, and i would try something on the breakfast menu next time. To all my new Somonauk friends, i love you guys.

Decided to go here for lunch, great menu and daily specials. I found it hard to decide on what to get. I went with the gyro burger, never even heard of something like that before. As you might imagine, it was amazing. This is definitely a to go type place, maybe 4 seats inside, so I may be back if I happened to be in the area on my way home. I hope to try the pulled pork tacos! Now to the reason for four stars. There was something funny going on with the fries. Most were delicious, but then you would get a random spongy \rubbery, puke taste fry that would ruin your day. Lucky for me I didn't end with one of those, and was able to search them out after running into a few.
While the service was good, the food was just OK. More expensive than I thought it should be for the level of the food too. Chances are that I'll skip this place next time and drive a little further for something better at the same price. Or less. Sorry BBQ Express. Up your game and I'd be back but until then....
No BBQ to speak of. They had a BBQ chicken sandwich, but the rest was all short order foods like burgers, gyros, dogs, etc. No seating. Walked out.

Most of the girls here are really attractive. 2 out of 15 maybe not so much. Can't have everything, right?! Service at your table is quick and friendly! The waitresses seem to all know how to treat customers. The bartenders are friendly and knowledgable. If you're looking for the "girlfriend experience" or just a nice show, this place is great.
This is a gross strip club, even for strip clubs. The owners and bouncers are slimey obnoxious creeps. EW Stay away.
On any given night, whether during the week or on the weekend, you get the B Team. There IS no A Team. Out of the 10-12 girls that are there, 1 or 2 are worth the dollar for a shake. The others are either over the top or a bit nasty. The poles in this club aren't very tall, so cool ceiling tricks don't happen. But, it's the closest titty bar to Somonauk, Sandwich, etc, so it's what they've got to deal with. Drinks are WAY overpriced, as is the $7 admission, but the cocktail waitresses are great, nice and very quick.
