This past weekend we visited Rack House Kitchen & Tavern in Arlington Heights for the second time. We enjoyed the Rack House on our first visit and I am happy to report that we lenjoyed it on our second visit as well. The Rack House has a comfortable cabin-like atmosphere with a dining room and bar. So, a fun place with the kids for lunch or dinner and a place for a drink for the adults in the evening. The menu features BBQ and smokehouse delights but in general is pretty expansive and has quite a few other selections. On our first visit, we tried a couple of the salads:
The salads were large and quite delicious. Definitely filling with vibrant vegetation! On this visit we also tried a BBQ chicken and pulled pork dinner. The dinner portion was also large and included cornbread, a baked potato and coleslaw. Also a hit!
On our most recent visit, I sampled the catfish tacos. The tacos come with coleslaw on top and a side of chips and salsa. I enjoyed the salsa and would have liked more to put on my tacos. The salsa is a fire roasted salsa, so quite yummy. All in all, I enjoyed the tacos and nearly finished my complete meal while at the Rack House. I did somehow sneak one taco home to eat while working......
My husband had the pulled pork sandwich with tater tots. He felt the sandwich was a bit over dressed but quite enjoyed the tater tots. Look at those portions!
The menu at the Rack House is great for families -- a little something for everyone. Of particular interest for our next visit -- they have homemade mac 'n cheese with all sorts of mixins including caramelized onions. Intriguing!
