CARSON'S RIBS OF DEERFIELD
Looking for great barbecue food in the Deerfield area? Look no further, Carson's Ribs of Deerfield is the ultimate BBQ restaurant as far as we're concerned. The food on its own would make it worth even a long drive, but when you consider the incredible high quality service, it's really priceless! You will never taste roasted meat better than what is offered here. We're hooked on the ribs, the potato skins, and the cole slaw! BBQ fans will quickly become addicted to this place! Very highly recommended!

Boston Blackies is best known for their mouthwatering burgers, and that's been our choice every time we visit because they are just so good. They're so juicy, so generously sized, and finished perfectly with the most flavorful toppings possible. Parking is a little difficult because it's very busy around this area, but it's worth circling the lot a time or two (or ten!) just to score one of their fabulous burgers. Wonderful restaurant and bar!

GINO'S EAST PIZZA
Gino's East Pizza is one of the most convenient places to stop in for a pizza in the area, and it's also one of the best. They've got a beautiful view that you'll enjoy looking at while you nosh on the most delicious deep dish in town. If you're picky about your crust, you'll be glad to know that it's just crispy enough and topped with the perfect portion of sauce to set off the flavor just right. Lots of TVs to catch the game while you're there. Wonderful place with very good service!

CHIPOTLE MEXICAN GRILL
Chipotle Mexican Grill is always a great option for a fast and healthy Mexican meal! Some would call this fast food, but though it's served fast and in a very casual atmosphere, the food itself is of a much higher quality than those other taco chains out there. The burritos and burrito bowls are our favorite, and with all those fresh and healthy ingredients, it's hard to imagine a better choice for a quick lunch during the hard working day. We just love this place, and once you try it you'll be hooked too!

Il Forno Pizzeria has some of the most unique pizzas that you'll find in the area, including one called the Smog pizza that you've simply got to try for yourself! Doesn't sound so good going by the name, but trust us when we say it's fantastic! This is really the only place that you'll find authentic Italian thin crust pizza anywhere around, so if you've been searching for that, listen up: You've found it. They've got an outdoor seating area that we love in the warm summer months, and special deals on pizzas every Friday. Check 'em out!

Demetri's is a cozy little Greek restaurant located on Lake Cook Road near the intersection with Deer Lake Road. They've got great saganaki (flaming cheese), good gyros, and wonderful lentil soup.
