where do you eat? We went to Wholly Frijoles alot but we want a change. We are looking for another place near there to get some eats after the park. We want maybe something ethnic, not fancy obviously, since we go after a day at the park.

    Capt. Porky's also in Wadsworth, right next to the Shanty, where you can get good versions of everything from deep-fried shrimp/fish to lobster rolls to bbq brisket:

      I haven't found anything in Gurnee that I like, so I go to . . .

      The Shanty in Wadsworth

      Tacos el Norte, Ming Toy, or Big Ed's in Waukegan

      Thai Gourmet in Libertyville

      Silo in Lake Bluff
