Need help in the burbs!!!

Hi everyone. I'm in need for some quality chow in the Romeoville/Joliet/Cresthill/Bolingbrook area. Can anyone give me some updated places to go besides the chain restaurants? My special someone is working out in that area. Thanks...Its a long haul from the northshore!!!

  1. High-end fine dining, perfect for that "special someone":

    Tallgrass Restaurant
    1006 S. State St.
    Lockport (just north of Joliet)

    And a bit farther north:

    8989 Archer Ave.
    Willow Springs (near where I-294 crosses I-55)

    4471 Lawn Avenue
    Western Springs 60558

    You'll find some not-so-quite-high-end recommendations for your area and nearby suburbs in this topic:

    1. For Mexican you can't go wrong with Amanacer Tapatio. I'd order off the specials menu rather than just going with tacos or burritos.

      Amanacer Tapatio
      700 Ruby St
      Joliet, IL
