I thought it was great. We started with the chorizo egg rolls which were wonderful! Then I had the Texas chili over fried rice. I had a whole bunch of toppings. We sat outside on the patio. I thought the decor was very fun too!...More

We had a girls day in Libertyville and stopped in for a Bloody Mary and lunch. Nice view of the town through the open doors in front. Food was delicious. Funny that the waiter did not recommend what we ordered when we asked his opinion....More
