This location had its Grand Opening back on the 15th of September (2011). I paid the place a visit this past Saturday, after a recommendation from two people. I ended up getting the chicken (breast meat) nuggets, as recommended by one of the employees. I chose to go with a lesser order of 8 nuggets. With An order of either the Nuggets or Chick – n – strips (tenders) you can choose a dipping sauce. They have:
Buffalo, BBQ, Honey Mustard, Buttermilk Ranch, Chick-fil-A, Polynesian and Tomato ketup
While waiting for the order, I noticed just how packed the place was with customers. Good thing we decided to take our order to go. I really liked the nuggets even without any sauce. From the first bite to the very last. The Polynesian sauce just helped to add more flavors.
California Pizza Kitchen
1550 East Golf Road
(847) 413 – 9200
This place has a nice selection of pizzas to choose from. They offer both the regular and thin crust variety. After looking through the menu. I chose to have a Sicilian (thin crust) Pizza, as seen below.
Ham, Sausage, marinara, herbs and cheese. Even though it’s spicy, I found to be quite mild. I also tried a slice of the Margherita pizza (no picture) which had a very flavorful cheese on it.
It was busy the Friday night I ate there. This specific locations seems like it can accomidate a large number of customers. For those not in the mood for Pizza, there is Pasta, sandwiches, soups and salads. a Kids menu is also available. I was quite stuffed by the time I finished my plate of pizza, so I didn’t have room to try anything off of the dessert menu. I enjoyed the experience of eating there and would definitely go back at some point.
Oberweis Ice Cream & Dairy store
30 Roselle Road Schaumburg, IL 60193
The Ice Cream from here is very creamy and tasty. If a long line ever forms, it’s well worth the wait and the service staff are a friendly bunch. Some of the dine-in seating spots have Chess games setup for you to play with as you enjoy your Ice Cream. I posted a tweet a while back that read:
Go in for the Ice Cream and leave with the milk.
This was right after I tasted the plain milk for the first time. It was just that good! There are other products to be found here, such as cakes, pies, shakes and even butter. I go there mostly for an order of 2 scoops of Cookies and Cream on a (dipped) chocolate cone. If you have an Oberweis store near you, I high recommend that you stop by and pick up some Ice Cream at the very least.
The RAM: Restaurant & Brewery
1901 McConnor Parkway
Schaumburg, IL 60173
Another first time dining experience for me. Decided to go there before the lunchtime crowd and it made a difference since I didn’t have to wait that long to be seated.
Sat at a booth near a Giant flat screen TV and bar. The tables closer to the bar were reserved at the time for a fairly sizable party of people. I had the Garlic Swiss burger with a side of house fries and beans. It was very delicious and filling. The entire experience was a positive one. The service was good, the food was tasty but I didn’t have any room for dessert. Perhaps next time.
The real high point of the entire experience was actually the Rootbeer that I ordered for my beverage. That tall mug of rootbeer really had flavor and went down smooth. I like my rootbeer (mainly A&W and IBC) but the one found at The RAM just took the top spot in my book.
Had a great time and will definitely go there again.
