I like a good "Chicago style" diner, and Around the Clock has been one of my favorites for decades. Good food, good value. Add "deluxe" to your sandwich order and get a cup of soup and fries, rings, or fruit to your order. Their soups (and their desserts) and exceptional.
A good clubhouse sandwich is one of my faves anywhere, and especially when it's 'real' turkey, roast and sliced. And the Around the Clock clubhouse is fabulous.
Dinner tonight was made better by our exceptional server "Jessica", who was cheerful, attentive, and clearly enjoys her work. A rare find these days.
Thanks, Jessica, for a great experience.
Around the clock is open weeknights until midnight, and weekends until 1AM, and is at 5011 Northwest Highway, Crystal Lake.
