John's Buffet makes the best fish tacos around . You get 3 large soft tacos filled with the best fish taco ever. Nice down home place, bar and attached restaurant , with a seated patio. Great food and drinks of all kinds.

The Reuben sandwich is one of the best I've ever had. Nice diverse food selection on the menu, and plenty of beers to choose from. The atmosphere is casual and friendly. They hire nice young people who do an excellent job of serving. A classic dupage eatery.

I have enjoyed John's Buffet for many years and really like the Friday night "fish fry" dinner-very family oriented and the service is generally very good

We usually eat here about 2 times a month, but lately just has not impressed me. Love the owner, great guy, but the food portions and quality have gone down.
