As I'm waiting for my condo to be complete, I am staying in the southwest suburban area. My fiance and I are in a culinary wasteland for the most part. There's lots of corporate options, but we like reasonably priced basics like Mexican, Italian, Greek, Thai, etc.
Fast food burgers and bar food will not be a problem here, but I'd like some ideas(forget pizza, I'm orginally from the area and have my favs).
We're also willing to spend a little extra on something really worthwhile.
