“Must Stop Pit Stop on Way to Chicago”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 7, 2011

So you are on Interstate 88 on your way to Chicago and you you want to stop before the hustle and bustle of the city to stretch, gas up and "grab a bite". The perfect stop for all of the above is Papa Bear Family Restaurant. Whether it is for the night (motel near) or early morning approach this is an absolute must stop. The food is excellent, the service is amazing(almost as if you called ahead it is so quick), and prices that are competitive with the "lesser brands". This is a place where Papa Bear, Mama Bear and all the little Bears can enjoy good food that will not wolf down your wallet.
