LA area Hound visiting Itasca, Hoffman Estates and Barrington

Looking for a few recs. Staying in Itasca from 8-4 through 8-7.

Need a rec or two in the Itasca area for sister's birthday dinner on Friday, 8-5 -- she's not super adventurous about cuisine, so something "American". I won't say that money is no object, but it is her birthday. OTOH, prefer somewhere not too fancy-schmancy so we don't have to dress to the nines. Will also be looking for a couple other meeals close to the hotel (Eaglewood Resort).

On Sunday, 8-7 I'm spending the day with an old friend and her family -- husband and three teenagers. They live in Barrington. Is there somewhere fun I might take them for lunch -- somewhere the teens would enjoy as much as the grown ups?

Any thoughts you have will be much appreciated. I did do searches for both Barrington and Itasca and didn't see anything (other than a post from someone looking for a bar in Itasca).

Many thanks!
