Illinois Restaurant Week Round-Up

Where to find the best dining deals around the state.


Broaden your taste bud horizons with a wide variety of restaurant week specials throughout Illinois. 

While most communities celebrate for one week, some areas, like Chicago’s North Shore, celebrate for an entire month! During this time, restaurants offer discounts and prix fixe menus (full-course meals at a fixed price) as a way to encourage diners to try different types of cuisine or food that may typically be out of their price range. When deciding on what and where to eat, review the restaurant’s offering and make a reservation. Often, participating communities host a giveaway or chance to win in conjunction with the annual event. For more details, click the town link or follow on social media.
