Georgia’s Restaurant Open for Business in Algonquin

A family owned restaurant specializing in breakfast will open Monday, May 23, on Randall Road next to Chili’s.

On Monday, May 23, Georgia’s Restaurant will open for business in Algonquin. Georgia’s Restaurant is  a family-owned restaurant specializing in traditional breakfast food.

The restaurant is located at 1470 S. Randall Road, next to the Chili’s and in front of the Wal-Mart. Hours will be 6:30 a.m.  to 9:30 p.m. daily.

The restaurant takes after the style of a Chicago-Greek owned style family restaurant, featuring large portions of quality food. Breakfast dishes include a wide variety of egg dishes, pancakes, waffles, crepes, and French toast, and average about $8 a plate.

After looking for over a year for a place to set up shop, Georgia’s found a home at the former IHOP restaurant.

“This seemed like a spot that was made for us,” said Harry Kulubis, one of the owners.

The Kulubis family, a Chicago Greek family, are veterans of the restaurant business. “My father owned a restaurant for 20 years, 20 years ago,” Kulubis said. “This is our second go around at it.” The Kulubis family is back in the Chicagoland area after spending a few years in Florida. They live in Barrington. 

The idea for Georgia’s Restaurant was born with baby Georgia, the restaurant’s namesake. Baby Georgia is Harry Kulubis’s niece and the first of her generation in the Kulubis family. The birth of Georgia inspired the family to change their eating habits and renew a commitment to quality nutrition, a commitment they’re hoping to spread to the community.

The slogan for the restaurant is “Better taste, better nutrition, quality food.” As part of that commitment, Georgia’s Restaurant will only serve Eggland’s Best Farm Fresh Organic Eggs and 100% pure maple syrup.

In addition to serving breakfast, Georgia’s Restaurant will have a wide selection of lunch and dinner options.  Harry Kulubis’s favorite dish on the menu is the Nutella and banana crepes.

I don't agree with the aforementioned responses. The food was great in my opinion. Everyone in our party got ample portions and the pancakes were delicious. I also felt the service was prompt and friendly. Compared to some of the other restaurants in the area, this was a nice experience for my family. I think it a nice little place. I recommend it.

Ok, anyone complaining about portions definitely isn't giving an honest opinion. If you're going to bicker about anything it's definitely not the portions. Not only did I leave with a doggie bad but it seemed like everyone else who was checking out had one too. I genuinely enoyed all the food. I am not a taste connoiseur but even I could tell that the corn beef hash was different. Come to find out it is made fresh and not out of the can. And I was really impressed that all the eggs items are made with organic eggs. I buy EB and I know how much they cost for a dozen! Honestly who else is doing that? And my party also tried the soup of the day which I was told was the best she had tried in years. This place has the right idea. We'll be back.

I absolutely loved the breakfast there. SO much food. The menu has a huge selection of breakfast, lunch and dinner. Almost everything you order comes with a huge bowl of soup. Everything is home made. They had a lot of healthy alternatives. You can really tell the difference in the 100 percent maple syrup compared to the other brands. The servers were a little green but that is expected from a restaurant open only one week. The entire staff was still very pleasant nonetheless. Im really glad they opened up. I plan to go again.

Because of the great comments I decided to try out the breakfast here with my family. They sat us toward the back where the servers come in and out. I heard a female who I was told later was one of the owners, yell what the f*** are you doing as she was standing outside the doors to enter the kitchen. Everyone around us heard it to. I had a 9 year old child with me who heard this. It was so unprofessional and as an "owner" should know better to talk this way with guests and kids around. Because of this, I would never go back or tell anyone I know to go there.

We tried it the other night. I thought it was a franchise, but after the salad knew it wasn't. Fresh, cool, lettuce not dried, just right. Had fish fry and good. Wife had corned beef sandwich which was good, but marble rye not a good choice as it was dry and tough. Should change it make it better. Like their philosophy on fresh and healthy, but french frys are not and that is what we got with both entrys . The coupon thing is wierd, they call them vouchers and my definition of voucher is a receipt for a payment, so the explanation from the old grandpa, who worked the cash register was not understandable. It is confusing and of course then not a clear cut coupon discount. Why play games with it. Just give people the darn $2.00 off and be done with it. All in all not a bad place to eat. Greek owned and they know their food. Will try breakfast. Keep increasing the healthy choices and be consistant.

I was disappointed. Paid a lot for mediocre food.

My wife & I had lunch here about two weeks ago. The menu was fine, and had a good selection of breakfast, and lunch items. Price seems a little high, but they sure give you alot of food. Our server was very good, but was hard to locate when we needed her. There were three old codgers at the rear of the restaurant grumbling in a foreign language. They were the owners, and managers of the restaurant. They should have been in the back room to have there conversation. You would think that one of them could have gotten off their duff, and said hello to their customers, or at the very least, throw on a smile, to make people feel welcome.

Worst restaurant experience in my life !!!! My wife ordered eggs with bacon. The bacon was brittle like shoe leather and must have been pre-cooked. It also had lettuce or some leaf stuck to it, but there was no leafy substance in the meal. Mine was far worse. I ordered a skillet. the meat inside was dry, chewy and burnt. When I spoke too the manager he offered a substitute, but there was nothing on the menu I wanted to try after such a bad meal and had lost my appetite. I asked the owner and manager to comp part of the meal as I would eat my pancakes and drink my coffee, but I was advised they would not comp anything. When I told them I didnt want to pay for something that I didnt eat, the owner said he was going to call the police on me if I didnt pay the full price for my meal. It cost me 17.00 and I drank half a cup of coffee and a few bites of pancakes and left immediately for fear of anymore trouble from the very grumpy owner and the so called manager. I wouldnt recommend this to my worst enemy.

Anthony - That's terrible! You should put this review on yelp.com more people will see it.

Yelp has been sued by many businesses for extortion tactics in selling ads for removing bad reviews of same biz and good reviews of competitors

I tried to leave my comments on Georgia's web site. Typed up everything and clicked submit and it came up as "could not find address". So, I'll try here. First went there when they opened. Small portions. Asked to have my toast buttered. Kitchen sent message via waitress, the butter is on the table. The reason I asked for the toast to be buttered in the kitchen, is that by the time you get the toast, it is cold and the butter won't melt, just stays a big blob on the toast. Asked about a senior discount. Cashier said senior discount is only during certain hours (right, the hours when I am not there). Their sign outside says they were voted best pancakes. By who? I see they have reduced their open hours. Trying to be like Burnt Toast, Short Stack, and Reeses, all in Algonquin. And by the way, they all butter the toast in the kitchen. I'll bet I don't get a reply, or even a comment, from any of the owners.
