CloverEats: The Silo in Lake Bluff
Back in the day, when I used to burn thousands of calories swimming, I loved coming to The Silo after a tough practice for a deliciously satisfying pizza. It’s been a longtime family favorite. There’s a large parking lot around the barn-shaped building. It has tons of seating, so even when it’s the busy dinner rush, there isn’t too long of a wait. The restaurant has a lot of charm, from its welcoming giant silo to little details like water games for children. It’s a very family-friendly restaurant.
Everything at the Silo is very generous, from its drinks to its food, portions are huge. I can barely finish a personal pan, and back in the day used to get larger versions, a milkshake, and a dessert “ice cream pizza,” which was basically a waffle. They also offer half-baked pizzas for takeout, so that you can get that fresh-baked experience at home!
Their pizzas are thick, in true Chicago style. There are plenty of choices, and you can always design your own pizza. Their various sandwiches are also tasty and filling. I’ve always had nice, friendly servers who were speedy with water refills.
