Rookies fields daily specials including half-price offers on the following: pizza on Monday, burgers on Tuesday, gyros on Wednesday, and Italian beef on Thursday. It serves all-you-can-eat fish on Friday, and a rib fest Saturday and Sunday among the featured deals.
The extensive menu highlights a variety of elaborate salads, as well as soup, chili, tacos and traditional pub fare. Homemade thin-crust pizza is another temptation, and a bargain gluten-free-crust option is available. Rookies has sister locations in Elgin, Huntley, Roselle and Hoffman Estates.
Before the lingering warmth of summer fades, we plan on checking out the patio seating. Thoughts of trying the ribs and wings are on our roster.
