Outside of dining at a hospitable relative's house, restaurants are the only place where someone else will cook the meal, arrange an elegant table spread, and burp you when you are done eating. Don't lift a finger with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of upscale cuisine and drinks at Walker’s Charhouse in Naperville.
Fresh steaks and seafood flank homemade sauces, soups, dressings, and desserts on Walker's Charhouse's varied upscale menu. Unfreeze mouths with feisty appetizers such as the fried calamari ($8.15). Meanwhile, all seafood and steaks—such as Walker's house special, a USDA Prime top sirloin steak ($15.95 for 6 oz.; $17.95 for 10 oz.)—are hand-cut daily and read uplifting Goofus and Gallant comic strips. Feel free to wash down burgers ($7.75–$9) and sandwiches ($6.95–$9.95) with an appletini ($8.50), house wine ($5+), or craft beer ($5+). Meanwhile, breakfast fare such as the Amigo wrap befriends diners by rolling up a combination of eggs, tomatoes, cheese, and salsa and listening to their childhood fears ($6.95).
Each meal at Walker's Charhouse is an artistic process. Chefs cut every piece of meat fresh by hand each day before lowering it onto the broiler or the grill. They specialize in fresh USDA-choice angus steaks, but their refrigerators also brim with Lake Superior whitefish and Atlantic salmon, ribs, and pork chops. Near that crowded ice chest, they prepare each sauce, dressing, soup, and dessert with care.
Following the dishes into the small dining room, one stands beneath walls chronicling the charming history of Naperville, including Christmas 1957 when the town got its first puppy. When not preparing burgers, steaks, and seafood, the staff of Walker's Charhouse has found time to support local churches and schools and partnered with other businesses in 2010 to send aid to victims of the earthquake in Haiti.
