Arrenello's Pizza Logo

Local chain serving pizza, pasta & sandwiches, plus wings, ribs & seafood, in a casual space. Arrenello's opened its first location in Glenwood, IL in 1972. Many things have changed over the years, but one thing that has remained constant is that Arrenello's customers keep coming back for the sweet stuff...sweet sauce, that is. "On a pizza," everyone asked? We knew it would be a risk, but people liked it a lot, and from then on, we were in the pizza business!

Omarcito’s Latin Cafe

Omarcito’s Latin Cafe Chicago Logo

Omarcitos gets its name from Owner and Chef Omar Cadena—a first-generation born in the United States to Cuban and Ecuadorian parents and a proud Chicago native. The meaning of the name comes from being the grandson of Omar Jimenez, the successful jewelry entrepreneur of Omar's Jewelry who opened for business in Logan Square back in 1979. (In Spanish, adding ‘cito’ to the end of a name is an endearing way to refer to someone as a little version of someone.) Omar has spent over 20 years working in kitchens across Chicago including the last seven years as general manager of BIG & Littles in Wicker Park. A lot of hard work, long days, sweat and tears went into the creation of Omarcitos.

 

The vibe you get being here comes from a genuine love for cooking food and making others happy. What we can promise you is delicious Latin American street food, friendly service, and a good time with good people. Here are some final words from Omar himself: "What I want to provide at Omarcitos is an overall experience. The music is right. The vibe is inviting, warm, and welcoming. From the moment you approach the building, you should automatically feel "I'm at the right place." Because when you eat here, you're familia.

Ed Debevic's Chicago Logo

Funky classic diner with 1950s decor serving American comfort food such as burgers & shakes. Ed Debevic’s, since 1984, has been one of Chicago’s most famous sassy retro themed diners. Quirky servers in flashy costumes serve up great burgers, hot dogs, cheese fries, huge salads, milkshakes, and ice cream sundaes with a side order of sass! Don’t expect this diner to be a “Please” and “Thank You” kind of place. The servers pride themselves on snarky remarks and even drop their trays to do choreographed dance numbers on the soda counters!

Janson's Drive-In

Janson's Drive-In Chicago Logo

Janson’s Drive In first opened its doors in the late summer of 1960. The Drive In was quite the success, with Janson’s Fans lining up daily. Janson’s has gone on to become a nostalgic neighborhood fixture for a generation of hot dog and hamburger lovers in the Beverly area. The rest, as they say, is hot dog history. In 2014, Janson’s Drive In was purchased by new ownership.

This family breathed new life into the Drive In, restoring it back to its original glory. Customers are once again greeted by “50s music”, neon lights, and 1950’s memorabilia. Prominent on the original menu are classic items like the “Chicago Style” Hot Dog, now the Vienna Beef Brand, and a variety of Coca-Cola products. Guests can also drink fresh fruit banana shakes and dine on Black Angus Beef burgers served on a novelty bakery bun. The new owners still operate the family business in much the same fashion as did the Janson’s family in the 1960. It is a very popular destination for families looking to eat great food with a wholesome atmosphere.

The “greater than life” American experience of eating in your car and drinking homemade banana shakes still lives on at Janson’s Drive In in Beverly. Our family invites your family to be a part of this history! /p>
