Jamba Juice has its home in California, but it's brought its fresh fruit flavor here to Carpentersville and we love it! Their schtick is that everything is "all natural," made with real fruit and fruit juices. You're probably familiar with the smoothies, but did you know that you can also get fresh squeezed juice here? And there are some truly amazing concoctions that they can create with Matcha Green Tea, which we can't get enough of! If you're looking for a thirst quencher, Jamba Juice is it!

BANDITO BARNEY'S BEACH CLUB
If you love beer, you'll love Bandito Barney's Beach Club. This is our absolute favorite after-work stop in Carpentersville for an ice cold brew along with some really great sandwiches. Our absolute favorite is the Roast Beef Twister with wasabe mayonnaise. You haven't lived until you've tasted it. Everything is served with a smile and true attention to detail. We love the staff here, and we love the atmosphere even more!.

If you're tired of inauthentic Mexican food and want something that's truly the real thing, you've got to try El Molino. Everything on the menu is made from scratch. They start you off with those delicious homemade chips and salsa, and from there you can tell that everything is going to be fresh and delicious. Mouth watering! The chiles rellenos are probably our favorite item on the menu, and you can't miss the margaritas! Too good to believe! El Molino is highly recommended.

Village Pizza is a Chicago institution, and the Carpentersville location is one of our top choices for a reason! You cannot beat the crust here, which is just perfectly flavored and cooked to perfection too. They put on just the right amount of sauce and toppings, and it's brought to your table piping hot. The service is old fashioned and friendly, and the atmosphere is always a great pick-me-up. Love this place!

ALPENROSE GERMAN DELICATESSEN
We had to mention Alpenrose German Delicatessen! This list wouldn't be complete without it. They've got the finest imported European foods and cheeses here, plus a lot of unique authentic German glassware that's always a great buy. If you love Campanzola adn Gruyere cheeses, they've got them, and they've also got the best herring that we have found in the Chicago area. One visit and you'll be hooked!

CHINA GARDEN RESTAURANT
We love China Garden Restaurant for its fresh and authentic Chinese food. The fast and friendly service is another reason that we find ourselves there time and time again. From the moment you walk through the door you feel that you've been transported to a cozy little restaurant in China, yet you don't even have to leave the Carpentersville area to get that authentic taste of the Orient. Highly recommended.
