Business Description

Famous for their hot, fresh made-to-order Philly steak sandwiches and other 100 % USDA choice steak, all-white meat chicken breast and fresh deli subs, grilled salads, gourmet fries and freshly squeezed lemonade.

Premium spot in the food court of a popular northwest suburban mall that has just under gone a $50-million-dollar renovation to become the entertainment mecca of the area with the addition of several new restaurants, a Dave & Buster's arcade/restaurant and a 12 screen, 1,600 seat state-of-the-art AMC cinema complex which just opened in May right next to the food court.

The food court was remodeled in 2014 and the entrance closest to the food court was closed half the year affecting sales negatively, but now the food court is complete! Other popular tenants include Cajun Café, Ketchup, McDonalds, Panda Express, Sarku Japan, Sbarro, Subway and Taco Bell. No more empty spaces!!

This premier shopping destination is anchored by Carson’s, Macys, JCPenny and Sears plus over 140 fabulous shops including Banana Republic, Bare Essentials, Cache, Coach, Gap, Godiva, H&M, LOFT, Mario Tricoci, New York & Co, Pandora, Swarovski, Teavana and much more.

This location is currently 100% absentee owned.
