Rainforest Cafe, Chicago, IL

Rainforest Cafe Restaurant Review

: This is a fantasy land with a family-friendly vibe, and it’s dense with activity --- thunder and lightning, rain dripping from the ceiling, squawking birds. In a nutshell, you wouldn’t want to spend too much time here, as it’s noisy to a fault. It’s as much a place to shop as to eat, and there is plenty of both going on. The menu offers burgers, pasta, salads and tacos --- all the basics. Each will cost you an arm and a leg --- particularly given it’s not the most delicious food you’ve ever had. For dessert, splurge on the sparkler-spiked chocolate volcano. Also located in Gurnee and Schaumburg.
