Places like this remind me to look past the stereotypical Chicago VT, River North, Streeterville restaurants - and take an afternoon drive to a place I would have blinked (and missed) going through. Burlington, Illinois - just off Route 47 in the far (far) west suburbs of Chicago lies a restaurant that steps back in time with regards to décor, music and the type of sincere service we remember growing up. Yes, sincerely nice people. So how good can the food be? Hello Sunday night and the special was ribs (about $14) . Fall off the bone ribs offered in two different sauces. Unlimited salad bar, soup, fresh bread (and limited desserts at salad bar) are all included. Husband had 12 oz. stuffed filet mignon (garlic, bleu cheese, butter). We all have those restaurant that we compare every "great" dining experience to such as jambalaya in New Orleans, jerk chicken in Negril and so on. From this dining experience alone - I'd rank the ribs and filet in the top 10. Yes, I said it. A completely satisfying dinner, casual and relaxed experience and worth the time and completely reasonable bill (total tab $65 not including tip). FYI - Anne - our server - was perfection. Much like being back home and having Aunt Bea waiting on you at Thanksgiving.
