Our passion is from scratch cooking. With today’s prevalence of unhealthy eating habits, obesity, and the long-term effects of early childhood and adolescent nutrition, we sought to make a difference in school kitchens. By using fresh ingredients and little or no foods that are processed or pre-packaged, we are able to control our costs and offer high quality home-cooked meals to all of our students.

Country House Community Feeding Initiative
Starting on day one of the 2020 pandemic-related restaurant closures in Illinois, we dedicated our efforts primarily towards serving/delivering donated meals to as many local Veterans, Seniors, and any other community members in need. We have kept this initiative going and made it a permanent part of the business as it is in line with our overall philosophy.
To this point, we are incredibly proud to have served more than 250,000 complimentary meals!
Please check out more info below, along with links to the media coverage our initiative has attracted. Our initial plan was to entirely self-manage this project, but with increased attention came the need to serve tens of thousands more meals than anticipated. The community stepped up and answered the call. It became a heartwarming example of a true team effort during a time when society can use as much of this approach as possible.
If you have any questions or if you are interested in supporting this initiative in any way, call us at the Country House Restaurant (708) 389-4618 or feel free to email us anytime: Countryhouserestaurant@comcast.net.
While Country House and its management happily continue to absorb most of the associated costs and labor, all help is meaningful and has an impact: Whether it’s through volunteering, sponsoring a specific organization to support/feed, or via kind thoughts. Thank you all for the continued gracious and inspiring support!

We are a family owned, independent restaurant that has been in business for over thirty years.
The restaurant was started with the idea of providing the highest quality, freshest homemade food in a family environment with affordable prices. On top of this we have always placed great value on strengthening the community around us.
By catering to our existing customers as well as local organizations, we quickly grew into one of the biggest catering companies on the South Side.
From the ancient groves of Pylos, our family and ancestors have produced this pristine olive oil for thousands of years. That’s a long time.
