The decor in Doyle's of Oak Forest is modest and casual with the feel of a German Hill Country cafe. Families particularly enjoy the comfortable atmosphere and the "home-cooking" focus of the menu.

With reasonable pricing your wallet certainly won't suffer and you're sure to help yourself to multiple helpings of these savory meals.

Be sure to sample a glass of the South American house wine along with your choice of South or Central American entrees.

Start happy hour a little early with a nice glass of vino from the extensive, international wine list at the Boom Boom Room. Novices can be sure to trust the bartender to make an excellent recommendation. Stay for one of the best paninis around, served on artisanal bread or try a cheese plate. Later on Saturday nights, feed the soul with some excellent live jazz while cozying up to your favorite someone du jour. The Moravian star-shaped lights and candles set the perfect mood for discreet smooching. The mood is chill, the décor is bohemian, the wine flows smoothly. Who could ask for anything more? - JoAnn Takasaki

Big Star is a small neighborhood haunt with everything to entertain the young working type - beverages, pool table, video games, magazines, jukebox, fire pit, hula hoops, etc. The drinks are cheap and strong, the service is quick, and the crowd is lively. The bar is dimly lit with random lamps and lights. Atop a checkerboard floor sits a range of simple chairs and tables. A more lounge-like corner holds oversized, oddly shaped psychedelic furniture. When the weather's not sweltering or otherwise wet, patrons tend to hang outside at picnic tables under an industrial-looking cover. No frills, just good times here. -Gemma Amato
