(Continued) Executive chef, Pete Loehrke, (with an extensive background that includes Lettuce Entertain You's Avanzare, as well as the Cheesecake Factory and The Clubhouse in Oak Brook), has taken great pains to learn the old favorites, such as the Athenian Skirt Steak and Glen Oak's famous Broiled Pork Chops, at the same time bringing in some new taste tempters such as the mile-high Hilltopper burger.

And yes, the restaurant serves dinner, which patrons can enjoy with that signature martini or a favorite glass of imported beer, every evening (who knew?).

California transplant and Wheaton native Pam Duffy, and her photographer husband Ken Little, decided to venture into the restaurant business. They began searching for a business location and theme that seemed right to them.

What they found brought them back to Pam's roots and her early childhood memories of sitting in the brightly lit windows of Glen Ellyn's Glen Oak Restaurant with her grandma, waiting for her uncle to walk by on his daily commute to the city.

Those early memories spawned an interest to buy the Glen Oak restaurant.
