What can we tell you about Lou Malnati's that you don't already know? With locations all over the Chicago area it would be tough to not be familiar with them already! Their perfectly flaky crust on both thin crust and deep dish pizzas... their incredible sauce and cheese... and of course those irresistible toppings... it's impossible to resist a Lou Malnati's pizza! We just love this place. Great service and great prices too!

Old Chicago is another one of our favorite pizzerias, and we especially love the way that they layer a generous amount of sauce over the cheese in their deep dish. The flavor is truly out of this world. Their party platters to go are a great bet for Super Bowl parties and other big events at home. Very cool place to hang out or to pick up some excellent food to take home!

Happy Elephant may sound like something you'd see at a bar after you've had a few too many drinks, but in this case it happens to be an excellent Thai restaurant! In the fall they've got some amazing house specialties including Pumpkin Curry, Stir Fry Pumpkin & Asparagus, and even homemade pumpkin pies! So we make it a point to stop in at that time of the year. They've got dine in, carryout, delivery, and catering. Wonderful dining experience all around.

Heavenly Bodies, as the name hints, is an adult entertainment venue in Elk Grove Village. You'll be able to kick back and watch some of the hottest girls put on a great show for you. They've got private rooms in the back and it doesn't cost an arm and a leg to watch a girl shake her tail in a private dance for you.

DEARBORN'S BISTRO & BAR
Dearborn's Bistro & Bar can be found inside the Ramada. What we love is that the food is excellent and very high quality, presenting a mix of American and Mediterranean food... but even though that's top notch, the prices are very low. You really get a lot of food for your money. The bar is equally cool with a great atmosphere and incredible prices. Nice selection of beer and wine! Highly recommended.
