My husband and I recently moved to this area, and, if we are looking for a meal different than the other chain-style restaurants nearby, we go here!

On our way to Chicago, we stopped here for lunch. We ordered drinks, I had the French Mule, a Feb drink special for $7. It was served in a copper mug and so good!!!! My friend ordered the Hurricane, which was also excellent. For food, we ordered the chopped salad in a wrap, the mac and cheese, with IPA braised... More

We didnt want the traditional franchise restaurant. Love the atmosphere. The food was not bad. I understand each food place wants to put their own spin on an entree but the Cuban Sandwich does not need the extra spices in the pulled pork. It was TOO MUCH spice, almost like a hint of jalapeno. This specific pulled pork tastes great... More

The food here is good, and the bar has a very good atmosphere for everyone. It's close to 6 Flags and I would recommend this to anyone stopping by

First of all, the food items ordered and the staff are absolutely great- that's the good news. The sad rest of the story is that the complete wall-papering of the restaurant with big screen TVs broadcasting sports absolutely stamps out the ability to even carry on a normal conversation at the same table. I have been here three times, and... More

We had a retirement get together here. They accommodated our group of about 50, dedicated wait staff to us. Place was neat, clean, bountiful choice of appetizers and solid beer and drink offerings. We WOULD return!

My wife and I shared the large slab of ribs with fries and had a little left over for a snack the following day. I appreciated that they were not slathered in sauce as they are in some places. This is not a place to go if you want a quiet, subdued atmosphere. Would definitely return on our next family... More

There can always be trepidation when a single location is successful and branches out into multiple locations and comes close to chain like status. ToT’s started as a single location in Chicago and has since expanded its reach into the burb’s. Including a location in Gurnee, right across from Six Flags. This was my first time at ToT’s. And I...
