There are many reasons as to why these places aren’t as popular as some of the corporate restaurants around this area. Marketing has a lot to do with their “secretive” nature, since they don’t have the budget big corporations do. Once you try these “secret” restaurants, they will have you coming back for moreand that is all that matters.

Fanatico (Located at 1215 Blackhawk Road)

The Northern Star awarded this restaurant “Best Date Night” every year since they opened. Fanatico is a bit pricier when it comes to a budget like mine, but the portions are so big and taste just as good when you heat them up to eat it later. Their lunch menu is Monday through Friday until 4pm, and it contains good deals on your favorite dishes, but they’re a little smaller. One of my favorite dishes is their pasta alla vodka. It’s a light pink cream sauce and goes great with tortellini.

Mediterraneo (Located at 122 E Lincoln Highway)

This place is a small but attractive restaurant located in downtown DeKalb. The food is very interesting, and I love trying something new every time I go, because I always end up liking it. I would definitely recommend it if you would enjoy a quiet and remote meal. Their hummus appetizer is exceptionally good no matter which one you choose. The owner makes it himself and sells it in Mariano’s around the Chicagoland area. My favorite is their gyro; it’s the best one I have ever had.

This is the least expensive option of the three. To be honest, I forget about how great this place is sometimes. But every time I eat there, I tend to eat it consecutively for a week or two. When I first went there, I was a bit apprehensive because, even though I know that I love Chinese food, I thought it wasn’t going to be much of a difference. I was so wrong. The dish I love most there is Bea’s Special Pad Thai. I’ve had Pad Thai before, but theirs is the best. They have many other great dishes, but just for their Pad Thai alone, you need to check them out!
