Nice Mexican restaurant, too bad it's in a small strip mall along noisy Harlem Avenue. Fried chips are okay, but the runny, overly spicy salsa will keep you from overindulging. Food is good, but not stellar. They have a wide selection of tequilas. Outdoor cafe has a few tabls, if you want to look at parked car grills and Harlem Avenue traffic.

Re: “Bamee Noodle House

Nice Thai restaurant with a cafe set away from the sidewalk in front. Nice interior, too. They do have liquor and beers. Food was good, but I can't recall the last time Thai disappointed me. And, as usual, prices are very cheap cheap cheap cheap cheap!

Re: “Dinotto Pizza e Vino

Very nice Italian restaurant. Their stand-out is their garden cafe within a fenced area on the east end. Service was great at first, but it fell apart once the place got busy. They don't offer many beer choices, but they have plenty of expensie wines for the high-brow crowd.

Food was good, but choices were mostly typical Italian. Rating of 4 because of the garden cafe.

I just can't believe I keep hitting these suuran eateries - I need more friends! ANyhow, Le Peep is open for b'fast and lunch, not dinner. Choises are pretty innoatie, and some skillet items are huge. They offer fruit smoothies, which impressed me and my friend.

Re: “Orso's

Seems like old-world Italian, based on the dark decor, bar area with piano and fancy lamps. Food was good, as was the dessert.

Re: “Siam Pasta

Siam Pasta consistently serves tasty, fresh Thai fare. It's becoming my favorite Thai restaurant in Chicago!
