We live in Joliet, and we wanted to go out for a steak dinner this past weekend. We drove over by Louis-Joliet Mall, and Texas Roadhouse, Outback and Lone Star all had 45 minute waiting times. So we had heard of this Syl's Place, and we drove over to Rockdale, which is only a 10 minute drive from the mall area. We were seated immediately, and our waitress was great. She has worked there for 19 years. The salad was fresh and crisp, the filet mingon was so tender, the pasta was perfect, and the shrimps were HUGE. We even had the desserts, which were also very good. We spent $100 for dinner for 3 people. So, it costs a little more than those other chain restaurants, but was well worth it. Also, there is no loud music blaring, so you can actually hear eachother without shouting, like you have to at Texas Roadhouse. Very calming decor. The only bad thing I can say is that their ladies room wasn't real clean. We will be back for sure!
