Schnitzel Platz has been voted "Best German Restaurant" for an incredible eleven years in a row, and anybody who has been there knows why. Everything that they serve is so delicious... true comfort food! We love to stop in for a Radeberger Pilsner on draft. There's nothing smoother. They've got excellent live entertainment Friday thru Sunday, making it the perfect time to stop in. They are always busy, especially during those days, so reservations are strongly recommended!

Avalanche Pub captured our hearts on our first visit and we've continued our patronage on a semi-regular basis ever since, whenever we happen to be in the Glendale Heights area. The waitstaff is one of the best that we have ever encountered, helping you to find the perfect drink to suit your mood and tastes. They've got a very impressive selection of beers both on draft and in bottles, and the selection of liquors is also noteworthy.

SUNDOWN INN PUB
Sundown Inn Pub is one of the coolest little pubs we have ever visited. We happened to come in on a very busy St Patrick's Day, and the energy was absolutely infectious. The crowd was lively and friendly, and the staff really helped to pick up that energy. The owner even bought a round of drinks for everyone which was very cool. We loved the ambiance and the warm friendly atmosphere and can't wait to visit again!

We wouldn't hesitate to call ourselves sushi aficianados, and having said that, our experience at Moonsun Sushi was amazing. It hasn't been there very long, but it's already one of our favorites in the Chicagoland area, mostly because of the incredible quality of the food, but also because of the amazing staff. We'd recommend the Butter Ocean roll, the Country Dragon Roll, and the Florida Roll. Too delicious!

If you love Vietnamese food and you're from the Glendale Heights area, you're probably already familiar with Pho Ha! All of the dishes are very light and healthy, yet substantial and filling. The setting is very plain and understated, but the food is phenomenal as evidenced by the steady stream of customers. The service can be a little bit hit or miss, but everyone we know says it's worth it for the food, and we agree. It's fantastic!
