This place has been open a few years now and there quality is at the top! Many items are made fresh several times a day and when they get a run on an item and don't have time to make more...oh well! Great Lunch deals!

There aren't any other restaurants with this type of food so this is totally a great addition to Waukegan near it's down town area. Great service, great food, a definite must try.

We had lunch at this diner yesterday. It is unimpressive from the outside--even discouraging. It looks almost like a small grocery at a service station. We had invited friends from out of town to meet us there so I went in to check it out before they arrived. It was so tastefully decorated that I immediately decided we had suggested... More

This was my first visit. I was not sure what to order. The cashier pointed out the lunch specials. These are reasonably priced and offer 5-6 options. Food was fresh, hot and tasty. It was really more than one person could handle so I took the rest home :) Nice find in Waukegan.

The service is unbelievably good! They bend over backwards to make you welcome and take care of you. The food is great on top of all of this. We'll be back.

All the food choices are great and extremely reasonably priced The owners and staff are very friendly. For a real treat, tell Marlene you want a falafel sandwich done "David's way."

The atmosphere at Papa Marcos gives you the feeling that you have just entered a friend's home. The food is very authentic and tasty Lebanese cuisine.

I frequent this establishment weekly. I love the food, ambience, and customer service. The portion size is more than generous and I usually have leftovers.

While the food here is great the service, owner and prices are even better! Unbelievable service: We are warmly greeted every time we enter here. Hopefully there isn't wait and we get seated right away. The food delivered to our table quickly, hot and fresh. There are often little extras provided free of charge - a sample of grape leaves...
