Chipotle

Everyone craves different foods sometimes. I crave Chipotle! The fresh made to order bowls, burritos and tacos hit the spot. Chipotle is committed to sourcing the very best ingredients we can find and preparing them by hand. They understand the connection between how food is raised and prepared, and how it tastes. With every burrito they roll or bowl they fill, they want to cultivate a better world.

Einstein Bros. Bagels Address: 22 Jackson Ave Phone:(630) 416-9888 HOURS: 5:00 AM - 4:00 PM Menu $

Einstein Bros. Bagels is your neighborhood bagel shop. They provide freshly baked bagels, breakfast sandwiches, lunch sandwiches, coffee, and catering. It’s a perfect spot to drop in and get a quick bite or coffee. I enjoy their turkey sausage sandwich, smoothie, and Caribou coffee.

Five Guys Address: 22 E. CHICAGO AVE. RIVER SQUARE Phone: 630-355-1850 Hours: 11AM-10PM $$ Menu

Five Guys founder Jerry Murrell's mother always told him, "If you can give a good haircut or if you can serve a good drink at a bar or if you can serve a good hamburger, you can always make money in America." Five Guys has been a Washington, DC area favorite since 1986 when Jerry and Janie Murrell offered sage advice to the four young Murrell brothers: "Start a business or go to college.” The business route won and the Murrell family opened a carry-out burger joint in Arlington Virginia. Under the guidance of Jerry and Janie, the Murrell family served only hand-formed burgers cooked to perfection on a grill along with fresh-cut fries cooked in pure peanut oil. They have hot dogs, burgers, and sandwiches cooked to order with your choice of toppings. Don’t forget the fries and milkshake.

Jimmy Johns Address: 19 W. JEFFERSON AVENUE Phone: 630-355-9411 Hours: 10:30 AM - 9 PM Website $

The story of Jimmy John’s begins back in 1982 with a young man finding his way in the world. He graduated from Elgin Academy High School in June of 1982. He graduated second to last in his high school class, so his options for college were slim to none. By August of 1982, he had four sandwiches for his menu. By 2002, Jimmy John's had grown to 160 locations, with many operated by dedicated Jimmy John’s franchise owners. It’s a local favorite that is known for being freaky fast. My favorite is the unsandwich.

Potbelly Sandwich Works Address: 236 S. WASHINGTON ST. Phone:630-579-1234 Hours: 11AM-9PM $ Menu

For those of you who love hot sandwiches in a casual setting, this is a good place. Long before sandwiches were toasted and cookies were on straws, Peter Hastings and his wife owned an antique shop in the Lincoln Park neighborhood of Chicago. This quirky shop was doing well, but the determined pair knew they could always do better. In 1977, they decided to start serving sandwiches to their curious, collecting customers. As time passed, the little antique shop slowly turned into the neighborhood lunchtime getaway. With lines reaching out the door and around the corner, customers enjoyed toasty warm sandwiches, homemade desserts and even live music in this unique atmosphere. In 1996, entrepreneur Bryant Keil purchased the original shop and set out to spread the Potbelly love across the country, creating shops with the same neighborhood feel as the original. Today, the Potbelly magic continues as a publicly-traded company, with more than 400 neighborhood Potbelly Sandwich Shops across the globe. My favorite is the Flat Bread Turkey Breast Sandwich.
