Evergreen Park, Illinois
Though Evergreen Park is just a small village near Chicago, with a population of just about twenty thousand, it's still home to a great many wonderful restaurants and bars that we love. This is one small village with a big appetite! Many famous athletes have come out of Evergreen Park, including Chris Chelios, Dave Steen, and Billy Pierce. George Wendt was also born here, as was Jenny McCarthy. But you don't have to be a VIP to get a great meal here! When you stop into town, you will want to try our picks for the best restaurants and bars in the 60805 zip code. Here they are...
DURBIN'S OF EVERGREEN
Durbin's has been a staple in Chicago's southwest surburbs since 1987. The familiar clover logo signifies good times ahead! We love the outdoor seating area with the white umbrellas and comfortable tables. Sitting at the bar inside is always fun, and the tables inside are just as cozy and plentiful as the ones outside. We love their stuffed cheese and stuffed sausage pizzas, and of course their taco pizza is delicious too! We highly recommend the Nuts & Berries martini, which is a blend of Chambord, Frangelico, and a swirl of creme.

Harte's Saloon has been serving the south suburbs of Chicago for quite some time now, and their live music is what keeps us coming back time after time. They've always got the best bands here. Friendly bartenders and staff make sure that you're tended to all night, you're kicking back in clean surroundings that are well decorated... plus there are always very good looking crowds and lots of great drinks and bar food to keep you satisfied! Just an all around great bar.

Chi-Tung Restaurant may as well be named Tri-Tung Restaurant, because it blends a total of three Asian cuisines into one cohesive and impressive menu! Thai, Japanese, and Chinese. It's a three-way match made in heaven. They've been in business since 1988, serving up a delicious lunch buffet on the weekdays from 11:30am to 2:30pm, and since they change up the items every day, it's always something fresh and different. Come in for hibachi or to have some drinks in the lounge!

Over thirty years of serving Evergreen Park the best pizzas! Their dine-in menu is very extensive. Appetizers like Oysters Rockefeller, Tomato Bread, and Saganaki... A huge pasta menu ranging from Chicken Tetrazzini to Baked Mostaccioli Florentine... and a dinner menu that runs the gamut from Surf & Turf to Sausage & Peppers. We almost forgot to mention the fish specialties like Grilled Salmon Steak and Smelt. Try the "Taste of the Sea" offering which gives you a selection of smelt, perch, and shrimp. Perfect!

Sesame Inn gets consistently high reviews from all of its patrons. There's a reason that Sesame Inn has earned such rave reviews, but it's tough to say whether it's the food, the service, or the atmosphere! All are top notch. We highly recommend the chicken and shrimp egg foo young, and the crab rangoon is a perfect pairing with that. Fantastic egg rolls and Mongolian beef too! They've also got sushi here, and it's tough to find sushi this fresh and delicious in the immediate Evergreen Park area! We love eating here, and you will too.

APPLEBEE'S NEIGHBORHOOD GRILL
It's tough to say anything about Applebee's Neighborhood Grill that you don't already know. Everybody loves Applebee's, even those who aren't fans fo chain restaurants, because it brings you the best of two worlds. They've got the restaurant area where you can enjoy great burgers, chicken entrees, ribs, steaks, seafood, and pasta... and then there's the bar area where you can enjoy a Bud Light or whatever your favorite beer on tap is! Before or after dinner, the bar area is a great place to kick back with a drink or two. We love their location in Evergreen Park. Always cozy and comfortable.

Snackville Junction is another one of those diners with a fun train theme! Kids love getting their meals delivered to them by train, and the adults love the old school diner atmosphere and the great service that's so hard to find nowadays. It's like stepping back in time, dining at that familiar lunch counter... We love the reuben sandwich and the double cheeseburger, and of course the delicious chicken tenders. Can't go wrong with any item on the menu here.
Address: 9144 South Kedzie Avenue
You cannot find a better pizzeria in the Evergreen Park area than Rosangela Pizzeria! The pizza here is perfect Chicago style thin crust, with just the right amount of sauce and cheese to set off the flavors perfectly. We're big fans of the Italian roast beef sandwiches, and they pile on the peppers and sauce very generously! If you love Blue Moon, it's on tap for just two fifty! Can't beat that. Great pizza, great beer, and great service.

GOLDEN GRIDDLE PANCAKE HOUSE
Golden Griddle Pancake House will make you want to have breakfast all day long! This place serves up all your breakfast favorites, piping hot and fresh, and oh so delicious. The service is incredible, with a very friendly staff who welcomes you into the establishment with old fashioned charm. They keep your glasses filled while you're noshing on those delicious pancakes! Two of our favorites: The mini waffles and silver dollar pancakes with fruit topping! Yum.

JIMMY JOHN'S GOURMET SANDWICHES
You wouldn't expect to see a sub shop on a list of the best restaurants in Evergreen Park, but Jimmy John's Gourmet Sandwiches makes the list because of their incredible variety and consistency. You can get a tradional sub, a plain slim (any sub minus the veggies and sauce), or an unwich (a low-carb lettuce wrap). That other sub shop has nothing on Jimmy John's when it comes to eating healthy... a JJ Unwich is the healthiest option there is! And on the other end of the scale you can get something like a Hunter's Club with a full quarter pound of rare roast beef, provolone, lettuce, tomato, and mayo. And they are FAST, so it's great for your lunch hour! In and out in a flash. Gotta love Jimmy John's.
