3 Fabulous Restaurants Just 1 Minute from Highland Woods

Residents at Highland Woods love the central location—just a few minutes from the Randall Road corridor and access to I 90. Another exciting part about living in this community on the rolling hills of far west Elgin—the incredible restaurants that are just a minute away from home! We love these restaurants, and can imagine making a perfect day of eating out of visiting them!

Close your eyes (well, I guess keep them open so you can read…) and let us take you along on our imagined perfect dining day for Highland Woods residents:


Breakfast. Start your day by heading to the delicious Country Donuts. Fresh tasty donuts, delicious coffee, and a cute eating area make it the perfect stop on a Saturday, Sunday, Monday, Tuesday…you get the idea! And if you’re moving slow and haven’t changed out of your PJs yet, no worries. They have a convenient drive through for lazy days or if you’re on the go.Tacos

Lunch. Head over to Sammy’s Mexican Grill and Bar for some delicious tacos, made with braised or grilled meats, homemade salsa, and true Mexican flavors. Or try some tortas, burritos, enchiladas…it is hard to go wrong with your choice! And if you’re having a lazy day, stay in and give them a call to have it delivered! If you feel like having a drink, check out their incredible tequila selection, with more than 100 available. Go ahead and enjoy! You’re celebrating your beautiful vida at Highland Woods, after all!


Dinner. Now it’s time to take your palate across the globe with a delicious taste of Italy at Macianos. They keep their casual, contemporary Italian dishes simple, but somehow so mouthwateringly good. Order a pizza—the dough is incredible. And if you are going for pasta, their lasagna is to die for. And again, to continue your lazy day idea—they deliver, and you can order a half tray of lasagna to feed your family of up to 6 people for under $25. (And you get a huge tray of breadsticks with your catered entree order!) Buon appetito!
