At Wyman Auto, we love good food almost as much as we love working on cars. Here are our picks for the top 5 favorite restaurants surrounding Minooka, IL.
Giordano’s has been aptly named the best pizza restaurant in Channahon and for good reason. In fact, CBS Chicago, Chicago Magazine, Home & Garden Magazine, NBC, and more have dubbed Giordano’s the best pie in all of Chicago. Considering the area is well known for its deep-dish, stuffed pizzas that come straight from authentic Italian recipes, these are high honors. Don’t miss the Chicago Classic Deep Dish with pepperoni, mushrooms, onions, and green peppers.
Contrary to what you might think given the restaurant’s name, Cookies isn’t a dessert shop. It’s a comfortably neat dining experience featuring a bit of an elevated take on traditional fare. You’ll see classic appetizers like fried mushrooms and potato skins on the menu, along with filet mignon, ribeye steak, prime rib, and poultry dishes. Cookies is great for small parties, takeout, and catering medium to large-sized events. Catering options are robust and offer multiple choices for meats, starches, and sides.
3. The Shrimp Barn
The Shrimp Barn is a popular seafood restaurant just across from the Grain Elevators on West Mondamin. Here you’ll find the famous Midwestern Barn Raised Signature Shrimp, and can enjoy indoor and outdoor dining along with takeout service. On the menu is traditional seafood restaurant-style appetizers like hushpuppies, gator bites, fried calamari, and lobster bisque. Main courses range from chicken pastas to tacos to their fried favorites, like alligator, bluegill, clam strips, frog legs, scallops, and more.
4. Fat Boyz
If Giordano’s isn’t your favorite, you’re bound to love the Sicilian-style deep-dish pizza served at Fat Boyz. The restaurant carries classics like pepperoni, cheese, and dress-your-own pizzas, but they’re better known for their specialty pies. The taco pizza features seasoned taco meat, lettuce, tomatoes, and crushed Doritos, while the chicken alfredo pie is made with a creamy white alfredo sauce along with roasted chicken, spinach, and sliced tomatoes. Don’t miss the famous Italian beef pizza, served with pepperoncini peppers!
