I had the Petr Brady sandwich - roasted pork with sauerkraut and apples on a delicious roll. Great iced tea - hibiscus. Also brought home 4 slices of sweet potato pie. Was soooo good. I keep thinking about it and can't wait to go back, though it will be hard to choose between great soup selections, main dishes, and vegetarian. Great food, nice atmosphere, friendly service - this is my kind of place!
yum yum! homemade lemonade, and a sandwich with ham, apples and walnuts all while eating at a picnic table on main street. this place is amazing!!!
4 stars based on the brownies alone. Pies and sweets are great and very well known in the county. Sandwiches are supermarket deli-esqe. The owner and workers are extremely cordial. The location is cute according to my wife.

By far my favorite mexican restaurant in Wauconda. The only complaint I have is that it is no longer there :( Not sure how long ago they closed, but I surely do miss them.
Was out running around far from home and stumbled across this place. Walk in and it looks like a dozen other mexican restaurants. Far from it! The menu is extensive and covers everything from tacos to seafood. Mexican music playing on the jukebox and mexican coke is just the start. The chips and salsa start things off and the have great flavor! The enchiladas oaxaquenas are DELICIOUS. I will go out of my way to stop by again next time I am anywhere near this place.
I lie somewhere between 3 and 4 stars with this place, but overall it seems good. Got take out here on a weeknight, the wait was a bit but not to the point it was excessive. I tried the seafood soup and sadly it was just ok, perhaps I can give it a good but that's it. The broth really had little personality, not having the richness and depth of a great seafood soup. There was a good amount of seafood, mainly octopus, squid and mussels, with a clam, crab leg, fish tail and some faux crab for good measure. The steak burrito on the other hand was much better, I would say it was very good. The standout for the night was the pork tacos, among the best I've had. The pork had a nice amount of spice, but not too hot, it was moist and delicious. I would definitely stop here again, but would try another seafood dish hoping for something better. Still, you could do much worse than this place. An additional selling point might be that there was a sign for karaoke there on the weekends, up to you.

Old Victorian Farmhouse Bed & Breakfast

Reviews:
I have been to business meetings at this wonderful bed and breakfast, because I live in the area. Sherry, the owner is wonderful! Each guest room is elegant and unique. This is located close to the wonderful tourist town of Long Grove with loads of unique shops and events. And a plus for an animal lover like me, animals are welcome. Murder Mystery parties are going to be offered this fall. All of us in the area are very excited to attend these. High teas are I truly recommend a visit to this
This review covers our attendance at a Murder Mystery Party hosted at the Farmhouse. The home was beautiful and filled with antiques including two racks full of period hats. When we arrived we were ushered into a parlor for wine and cheese, but we only got to drink the wine as there was not much time before dinner and much of the time was taken up with the reading of character descriptions. Dinner was served at a richly decorated table, but some of the food was cold and just OK and dessert was only a plate of cookies and coffee. I went there with a group of friends and only half of our group were given rolls to act out. Being in character is our favorite part of participating in MM Parties, When we registered we were told we would receive our rolls two weeks before the party, so when I found out I would only be watching, it was a little disappointing. But it was nice to meet new people and the night was not a total bust. If you enjoy a good sleuth, it's an enjoyable night, but if you enjoy acting you may want to let them know you want a part or you will just be watching others play the game.
This is THE best B&B I have ever stayed at and I've travelled around the world along with staying at B&B in Napa and Monterey California. Sherry did an amazing job capturing the country old charm with amazing detail to design and yet provides the convenience of modern facilities like a jacuzzi, satellite tv, wi fi and air conditioning. The 1930's piano was incredibly in tune with well kept keys and it only adds to the homey feeling with her delicious family style breakfast with adorable poodle "Romeo" watching nearby. A short trip to the quaint village of Long Grove with so many cute shops will leave tourists and city dwellers wanting to come back. Bravo Sherry Bravo!

Strawberry Moon

Reviews:
Very welcoming and friendly spot. Great atmosphere and even better martinis. Will definitely visit again!
Adorable place, DELICIOUS martinis, friendly bartenders. Most of the live music is good, especially Ed Collins. Highly recommended.
Strawberry Moon succeeds on so many levels. While small and simply decorated and furnished, it's emphasis is on entertainment and expertly mixed cocktails. The service at the bar or at tables is consistently exceptional and friendly. Always a pleasure to tip well here because the service is just that good. Live music is varied and kept at a perfect level so that you can still talk and enjoy. We visit Strawberry Moon often but have stopped going for the appetizers, which are unremarkable-but tasty, small portions and priced way too high. The value just isn't there. Crab dip, pretzel bites, fondue w/crab, cheese/fruit plate, duck confit. Note to owners: Ramp up the portions 20% to offset the price because ordering several apps is a deterrent for anyone that isn't a die hard 'Mooner'. Switch it up, too.

Walked in for dinner to find two hosts (who looked barely over the age of 16) sitting on stools behind the host stand, talking to each other. Barely glanced at us, didn't greet us. I said hello and that there were two of us for dinner. Husband had the all-you-can-eat fish fry which he said was "pretty good" and I had the fish tacos which were barely tolerable. A few tiny bites of cod, some slimy cabbage and a thin slice of avocado in a flimsy corn tortilla. The rice dish that came on the side was OK. Service was lousy...waitress had that "I don't want to be here" attitude and only checked on us once during dinner. Husband had to ask for more fish - she never checked to see if he wanted or needed more. At the end of our meal, she came and placed the guest book on the table as she passed by. Never said anything like most waitstaff do such as, "I'll take this when you're ready. No hurry." We had one of those online deals where we paid $15 for $30 worth of food and our bill came out to be $29.95, so all we owed was tip. We placed the tip in the guest book and waited for the waitress to come by and pick it up...and waited and waited. She never came back to pick it up and say thank you or have a good night or anything. We finally just got up and left. Good thing we had only paid $15 for our food because even that amount was barely worth it. We won't be back.
Great beer selection, great food. They have excellent specials, and the lamb stew is amazing. I like the Friday fish fry, which has thick crunchy batter. The fried pickles spears are very good, too. We've always had great service here, and the atmosphere is very pleasant. It's also a good restaurant for kids.
Food and service is amazing during off hours. I've had most everything on the menu and as said before its all amazing before the rush hours. My last straw was the Friday fish fry, it was horrible, I felt like I was just eating grease. Prices are decent but do yourself a favor and go for lunch or a early dinner.

I LOVE THIS PLACE. Great pizza and everything else is amazing. Very personable and delivery is fast and all drivers are nice. Get some great Italian food here. You will not be sorry
Nice lady in the phone, nice delivery man.. But the pizza was so sloppy and sugary I couldn't eat more then one piece. The breadsticks were very similar in taste- worth a try but will not be ordering here agin.
Just ok. Pizza was soggy and delivery was late. I'll be trying somewhere different

Raul’s Burrito Express

Reviews:
I have been here several times and it has been consistently good. I usually get the chicken quesadilla or tacos. Food is good tasting, filling and inexpensive. Most meals are $5-7. ascetically the place would use some work and they do not have very many tables, but it seems clean and I usually take it to go so its not a big deal for me.
Stopped in for an early lunch...only place open before 11:00. Had a chorizo taco with guacamole and the "queen" beef burrito. Every bite was delicious and all for $7. Tacos are $1.65 each and worth every penny. ..add .35 for guacamole. Also ate some of the complimentary chips and salsa. Fresh tasting food and great low prices will have me returning.
Really authentic Mexican food. Can't beat the taco dinner for 7 bucks. It's the perfect hangover cure!

Lindy’s Landing

115 Park St
Wauconda, 60084
Reviews:
Lindy's in the summer on the deck is a nice spot for a meal. Food is okay. Not bad not great, but the view is very nice. Can't miss with a burger. If its busy be prepared for incorrect orders though. Special orders always seem to throw the kitchen out of whack.
A long lost friend graciously invited me up to what I consider a vacation home, a boat dock, lake, and every water sport known to man at our disposal. We did the only proper thing, we went to Lindy's Landing and drank. I admit, we were on our way to a joint called Docks or something, but about five hundred motorcycles beat us there, off we continued. Bikers, so annoying. Well, I guess any group of people who decide to completely crash an establishment unannounced in mass are pretty damn annoying. Although that many bikers offers up much fun drinking games. Ever play, drink a shot when you see a dragon tatoo? How about chug whatever drink is in front of you when you see a bandana? You can see this could get lethal, we decided a place with less excitement. We were welcomed onto a large outdoor patio with a two piece band jamming an acoustic guitar and some steel drums. Thankfully no vocals, the music was a touch loud, but nice background music. I haven't been to this part of Illinois in some twenty years, I am always amazed at the amount of people behaving as if they are at Sandals resort. $5 Mai Tai's were pretty darn good, the under a hundred calorie drinks, not so good. Stuffed burger with bacon and cheddar was surprisingly good, cooked a perfect medium as requested. Wings were standard, done well. Fruit salad was a nice offering, but a bit abused. Nachos were a bit sparse, but had good flavor. None of the food detracted from the task at hand. If this place does anything, it is that they don't fuck things up, they don't try to hard, it is very laid back, the young staff seems to be serious about their job. It made for a very nice afternoon of debauchery. How much is a cab from Wauconda to the Southside?
Went for lunch... Great weather made the outside seating at lakeside great!!!! Service was prompt ...... Hamburgers outstanding
