Bites Nearby: For Over 25 Years, Palmer Place Has the Recipe for Success

Huge imported beer menu, juicy burgers and a great outdoor patio!

I can’t think of a better way to dine in the summertime than at an outdoor patio, eating a big fat juicy burger and sipping an ice cold beer. Well, that’s just what at 56 N. La Grange Road in La Grange is doing every day.

Permeating with a pub decor, the interior is what you’d expect, not a lot of bling… just warm and comfortable.

When you wind your way to the back of Palmer Place, you’ll find the bar. That section has always reminded me of a college bar atmosphere. Adorning the walls is artwork from artists like Guinness and Budweiser and plenty of TVs to keep up with your favorite team.

The gem of Palmer Place is the two-story outdoor patio, located in the back parking lot area. Dining in the patio is like a mini vacation from your day… a great place to meet up with friends.

With over 30 burgers to choose from, the flavor selection is endless. The Emerald Isle Burger features Cahill Irish Porter cheese and grilled onions served on an English muffin while The Fat Boy is a classic one pound burger with your favorite cheese melted on top on a Brioche bun.

The must have burger is their award winning Ultimate Gourmet Burger. Using Wagyu Kobe beef and Neuske brand bacon, it’s topped with braised Blue Moon onions and finished off with red bell pepper mayo and smoked picante ketchup. The flavorful, top quality beef will rouse your taste buds.

Not in the mood for beef? The menu offers triple-decker club sandwiches, Mexican favorites and huge and hearty entrée salads.

Beer connoisseurs will love to come to Palmer Place and try one of their 250 beer choices from 25 different countries. Yes, there are German beers, but other countries are featured like Israel, Nambia and Guatemala.

Family owned and operated since 1983 says something about a restaurant at a time when it’s a challenge to stay in business. Looks like their winning formula will keep them around for years to come.

Yes! The burgers ARE good. The beer selection is great. The fact that Palmers has been part of the local scene for a couple of decades says it all - they provide what people want.

I agree about the beer. The ever changing draft beer choices is the main reason why I'm a frequent diner. I am always up for trying something different.

I don't think one can ever over-state the importance and positive local impact of this anchor-business through the many years it has operated. Nice article.
