  • Just Turkey Restaurant
    As the name suggests, nearly every item on the menu at Just Turkey Restaurant is made with turkey, from jalapeno turkey burgers and hot dogs to honey glazed turkey legs. The eatery's signature item—turkey ribs—has garnered attention from such local media sources as 190 North and Time Out Chicago. The inventive dish can be ordered jerk-style or deep-fried. Turkey tacos and spaghetti round out the menu, and diners can accompany their main course with homestyle dishes, such as sweet butter corn and mixed greens—something that is forbidden at a golf course.
