Kindergartners were once taverns’ key demographic, until a profusion of rowdy nights led to complaints from an overworked Tooth Fairy. Enjoy tavern atmosphere free from tussling toddlers with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of casual cookery and drinks at Prairie House Tavern in Buffalo Grove. A family-owned eatery and bar, Prairie House Tavern boasts a wide-ranging menu of wraps, sandwiches, grilled goodies, and more, as well as a whistle-whetting assortment of more than 30 beers. Lounge in the dining room while chomping on cheesy slices of the famous house pizza ($13.75 for the 16 inch, plus $1.85 per topping), or select an epic track from the bar's jukebox to accompany the half-pound Black Angus Tavern Burger, a glorious work of grillery topped with onion, sautéed mushrooms, and Canadian bacon ($9.75). A Sunday-brunch menu gives sports fans a palatable way to prepare for a day of football watching or recover from a late night of luge debate.
