If you make it out to the (far) West suburbs, there are a couple of must-try places in Batavia:
Kathy’s Diner – The best (and biggest) pancake you’ll eat. You can’t go wrong with any of their breakfast offerings.
El Taco Grande – Unbelievable Mexican food. Family owned and it shows. A bit pricey (less so if you stay away from the margaritas), but definitely worth it. Guacamole is to die for.
Makes me hungry just thinking about it. Come out here and join us!
