Sat Dinner near Shorewood/Channahon/Minooka/W. Joliet?

Looking for a place to go for casual dinner with my sis and brother in law. My son will be at grandma and grandpa's in Channahon so we're looking for something nearby.

Searches didn't turn up any up to date recommendations.

  1. I haven't been to Chapin's in Morris, but I hear it's good. Maybe not jeans-casual, though. Turtle's Tap in Morris is a good Caesar salad, hamburger, jeans place.

    Truth restaurant at the SW corner of Jefferson and Raynor might work for you. Pretty solid American grub, pleasing room, a little nicer than jeans.

    Ever been to Merichka's on Theodore St. a block east of Raynor in Joliet? Wear anything you're willing to drip garlic butter on from the famous poorboys, catsup from the onion rings, and mayo-ey dressing from the kidney bean appetizer.

    Good luck.

    1. Take em to Marichkas. Local fare, great folks
