There is no dine-in service at The Golden Bowl, a Bartlett Chinese restaurant specializing in takeout and delivery. But that doesn't phase the regulars who keep coming back for spring rolls, house-made dumplings, and pan-fried noodles. In addition to these classics, the eatery's chef whips up original creations such as Crunchy Bartlett Chicken, which pairs shredded, lightly breaded chicken with tangy apricot sauce. Diners can order all of these dishes and more online, preventing one from having to pick up the phone or softly pray for chow mein to rain from the sky.

Every Sunday, Papa Saverio welcomed his family with the enticing aromas of simmering tomatoes, garlic, and onions as he cooked a traditional Italian meal for the whole clan. Two generations later, his children and grandchildren have grown into expert cooks themselves—thanks to their papa's teaching—and have founded their very own restaurant, Papa Saverio’s Pizzeria. Opened in 1997, what was once a single shop in Lake in the Hills has since expanded to 15 stores scattered across Chicagoland. Yet no matter the location, Papa Saverio’s Old-World recipes remain the same and his love of family pervades each eatery. Patrons can build their own pies atop a light and flaky thin-crust canvas or a slightly thicker pan-pizza crust, or they can go even bigger with the Chicago-style deep dish, which requires a fork and knife for mess-free consumption. Chefs hand-roll the eatery's original double-dough pie and layer cheese and toppings, such as sausage, green peppers, and hot giardiniera, between two crusts to create the stuffed pizza. Although Papa Saverio’s is known for its pies, the menu also features other Italian favorites, such as baked mostaccioli and lasagna, and plenty of sandwiches and wraps for those who already ate pizza for breakfast, lunch, and second lunch.

Sandwichville

The sandwiches at Sandwichville look a lot like the one's you'd find in Memphis. Or Manhattan. Or New Orleans. That's because the shop takes inspiration from classic sandwiches from all around the country and compiles them together onto one menu that pays homage to the best inventions on sliced bread. Reubens are piled high with corned beef that's grilled instead of steamed, allowing them to hold their own against those made in any New York deli, while southern-style barbecue pulled pork sandwiches get a splash of hometown flavor thanks to a generous slathering of Johnny V's sauce, which is bottled locally. Diners will also find cubans, BLTs, muffulettas, and a grilled peanut butter and banana sandwich dubbed the "salute to Elvis" for its famed association with Canadian figure skating champ Elvis Stojko. Of course, they can also take the fate of their lunch into their own hands by custom building their own sandwich from a generous selection of meats, cheeses, and condiments.

No matter how old you are, when a toy train pulls up bearing your lunch, you smile from ear to ear. At 2Toots Train Whistle Grill, O-scale toy trains bustle around the '50s luncheonette-style grill, delivering burgers, hot dogs, and fries to each table. These, however, are not just ordinary hot dogs, hamburgers, and chili; they're sourced from national and Chicago news journalist Bill Kurtis' Tallgrass grass-fed and pasture-raised beef, which means they're imbued with more nutrients and vitamins than beef that's been commercially-raised or fed a diet of candy corn.

But the veteran owned and operated eatery's sense of giving back doesn't just stop there. The restaurant promotes 1 Vet at a Time, a pending 501c3 that helps combat veterans secure business loans by serving as a benevolent lender.
