Downtown Ollie’s 822 N. Illinois St.

Downtown Ollie’s is one of our favorites places to visit. Pat and Fran are frequent breakfast visitors. Up until this year I would go to my gym downtown on my Birthday and come here for a breakfast of biscuits and gravy and a Bloody Mary. A couple of years ago the ownership changed and as far as I can tell the only thing that has changed is the decor. Ollie’s had a perpetual Christmas theme going on with twinkle lights. The lights are gone and overall the decor is a bit more “grown up”.

It is a shame that Pat’s lunch was sub par but as he said they have a bunch of other stuff that is not. As for me I opted for their Sloppy Joe sandwich with tater tots. The same thing I had when I first visited here.

It was just as good as I remember it. On an intersesting side note the sandwich is about $1 more and the portion is smaller. That is fine because they served a whole bunch of food before and now the portions are more reasonable.

This was there featured coctail for the day. Coconut rum with some sort of juice. I have no idea what gave it the green color but it was tasty and cost 5 bucks.

So we will be probably be doing some revisits until things get sorted out. It is OK to get out and have a meal away from home. So do it.

  1. Glad you got to get out and get your sloppy joe. Interesting beverage! I think I would like to have gone to it when it had the Christmas decor.

    • I did like it better with all the lights.

  2. Yeah, I’d like all the twinkly lights, too. Too bad about that bit. I’m sure it reduced the light bill.
    I like tots 🙂

    • Change may be inevitable but that doesn’t mean you have to like it.
