This used to be a favorite, and we still go often--but it seemed like the service has gotten a bit slower the last few times. Waiting for someone to take drink orders...take food orders...bring food probably only a few minutes more for each than it...More

Great foodie experience for all 60+ of our group! I had also stopped in here earlier in the week for a bowl of their green chilli...the verdict: do not leave Evanston until you try this delicious recipe!
