Dining, Entertainment, and Shopping
Serving the McHenry area since 1974, Fox Hole Pizza
serves up excellent salads, sandwiches, and pizzas. It’s the best spot to go for “the best thin-crust pizza in town” and offers residents a casual, laid-back dining atmosphere, perfect for an evening out with family and friends. Another favorite spot is Little Chef Restaurant
. Family-owned and operated for 50 years, Little Chef brings incredible breakfasts and sandwiches to downtown McHenry. Shirley Klapperich’s family has been running this traditional diner for decades, teaching the younger generations the ins and outs of the restaurant business. It’s the quintessential diner where the staff knows your name and remembers your order, and you always leave feeling full and happy! Their “Little Menu”
offers dozens of breakfast and lunch options and features rotating, homemade desserts each day.
With humble beginnings in China, Plum Garden
is the culmination of years of hard work, big dreams, and hope. Founder Connie Moy traveled from China to America and visited the town of McHenry in 1965. Soon after, she opened Plum Garden, which was take-out only at the time. In 1972, her grandsons took over, growing the restaurant to include dine-in services and an expanded menu. Today, the restaurant is even larger than it was in the 70s and includes favorite menu items like homemade crab rangoon, bacon mac ‘n cheese egg rolls, and Mandarin pork egg rolls. They are the oldest, single-family-owned restaurant in McHenry County, and the owners honor their grandmother’s legacy by serving fresh, quality ingredients in a friendly and welcoming space.
