Looking for any unturned stones in or near Gurnee

abf005 | Jul 28, 200603:05 PM     309

Fellow Chowhounds, please help. I've lived in Gurnee for 10 years now, and I've pretty much hated every year here from a dining perspective.

It seems like if you like Pizza, pub burgers and Durango Mexican style food, then northern Lake county has a few respectable options. Just don't go looking for any good ethnic or unique cuisine. And I don't think any good Chinese exists here!

So here is my request; I'm looking to see if anyone has any good non-national corporate chain recommendations (local Chicago only chains are OK) in the area, anything in a 5 mile radius is fair game.

So far, here are 4 worthwhile spots that I've found in the area, but I really would value any additions to this list that anyone might have, as I still know there must some hidden gems out there.
1) Backyard Steakpit - Grandwood Park
2) Rancho Nuevo - Round Lake
3) Mickey Finn's - Libertyville
4) Yuri Of Japan - Third Lake

Thanks for your recommendations.
