Egg Haven is real good and along sycamore road. Ellwood steakhouse is also real good. Closer to campus - Fattys.

I like P.J.'s Courthouse, but it's in downtown Sycamore.

Best picks on that route for sure.

Mmmmm Egg Haven. Good choice.

I’m probably in the minority here but I cannot stand Fatty’s. Horrible service and the food is average.

I do like their patio bar but that’s about it.

My apologies to the Huskie faithful for my opinion on Fatty’s.

I share your opinion on Fatty's. Plus, I won't go to an establishment where it's wall-to-wall, shoulder-to-shoulder people. Just not comfortable for me.

I like all that are mentioned above but Hillside downtown for dinner is great.

Not disagreeing with either place, but I'd say these are opposites when it comes to the type of meal and the amount of money you're willing to spend.
If you're not turned off by chains, being the newest option in DeKalb, the Chilli's on Sycamore Road is good, healthy options can be found at Panera's, and once Sycamore Road becomes DeKalb Avenue, the Portillo's will not disappoint.

MVPs or PJs Courthouse in Sycamore american style bar food. Sycamore Rd is mostly chain, so it depends on what your looking for. There's always Nat's on Maple (more upscale) or Tasco (mexican) in Sycamore as well. Sycamore Cafe across from Culver's is good too.

+1 on all your choices. I too like the Sycamore Café. It's nothing special, but it's a typical Greek-type restaurant with good, abundant food at reasonable prices. Sometimes my wife and I go there for lunch or dinner.

Gotta put in a plug for an old favorite of mine - the Junction on Lincoln Hwy. The Royal Swiss Canadian Platter has been my favorite there for over 40 years.

Also, for a nice, fresh sandwich (and a huge selection of them), try Shawn's in downtown Sycamore. The wife and I always go there. It's owned by Shawn Thrower, former NIU basketball player. Phenomenal selection of sandwiches (over 30) and very fresh. They also have breakfast sandwiches.

Let us not forget that the hands down BEST place to eat in all of DeKalb/Sycamore is the Convocation Center concessions counter. Food is second to none, prices are more than fair, service is outstanding, and the lines are short or non-existent. Of course, you'll have to wait until the next event there, but the wait is more than worth it!
