The closest Malnati's full service restaurant is probably Naperville, about 9 miles west of the hotel.

Now.. If you are interested in something else, there are a couple of very good restaurants in Westmont, but not classic Chicago stuff.

Bohemian Crystal - Just off of Ogden Ave in Westmont. I think this is ne of the best eastern european restaurants in this area. Great food, large portions and relatively inexpensive.

Chinese Kitchen - a couple of miles south on Cass Avenue from Odgen. As the name implies, chinese, but good chinese. I couldn't find a web site so I linked to the Yelp review page

Katy's Dumpling House - In a strip mall on Cass Avenue just south of Odgen. It is a small place but good dim sum. I couldn't find a web site so I linked to the Yelp reviews.

I'm not sure if I can get away or not, but if you end up at Malnati's in Naperville I may be able to sneak over for a bit, but don't base your decision on me. I'll PM my cell number just in case you need someone local.

thanks for the info...we are staying at the clubhouse inn westomont...rented a car so 9 miles doesnt seem so bad...have seen lou's on various travel channel and food network programs so would like to check it out...but we arent leaving unitl sunday so hopefully we will be able to check out some other places
