October 6th Shannon’s Corner Butcher Shoppe & Deli opened in Downtown Lombard. It’s just north of the the Butcher shop of the same name. Let me tell you they have great selection of meats there and always give you the best advice on how to cook your choice cuts. I’m glad Shannon’s decided to open it’s 3rd or is it their 4th restaurant in Lombard. They have several other places around the area. It’s a nice little addition for lunch time in Lombard. One big bonus, I just found out you can find their Deli sandwiches at The Corner House too. Glad to see the downtown merchants working together. I had the Chicken Salad Sandwich, GREAT!
Just because you can find their deli fair at The Corner House you still need to stop by their regular store to take advantage of their full blown menu. Go in and give it a try. If you like their meat selection you’ll love their menu offerings. subs, salads, soups and sandwiches. I saw someone leave with a bowl of Chili, kind of sorry I missed that. Chili is one of my favorites, oh well maybe next time.
Actually for a smaller store they have plenty of seating and when spring comes I hope they have seating on the sidewalk.
Just look at all those meat choices so think of the sandwiches you can make!
Got a sweet tooth? They also have some fine looking deserts
On this day I had a hot dog and split pea soup. I’ll be back for more.
Welcome Shannon’s again to Lombard and help make them a long lasting fixture downtown. Hope you’ll find your new favorite dish there.
Had a fun in downtown Lombard last night, hanging out with some friends at Bonton, saw some hot rods at Lombard Cruise Nights and then some Gelato at The Corner House. Oh and I bumped into Bill Mueller our Village President, he was kind enough to let me take a picture with him!
If you haven’t picked up any steaks at Shannon’s lately you might have might have missed the new sign in the window two doors down.
Looking forward to having a new place to eat in Downtown Lombard. So keep an eye out for the opening. Maybe I’ll see ya there!

Yeah that’s right they have plenty of wood to cook up your meal just right! I talked with Bill at Brix Pizza. If you haven’t gone there in a while you should go back. If you are a regular then you know what I’m talking about. It’s not your normal Pizza, normal being comfort, thick, meaty, cheesy. It’s much lighter than that and you don’t feel like you doing something wrong eating there.
My wife and I usually get our own pizzas and split a salad. Bill’s right, their sandwiches are great my favorite is the Smoked BBQ Chicken. Check out what else they have on the menu! You can see the 190North episode here, and you can read what Chicago Magazine said about Brix here.
Oh one more thing, I think Bill was so excited talking about pizza and Brix he wanted me to correct the dates. Instead of 1874 Bill says it’s 1785, when the first brick oven pizza was made. I guess that’s puts it closer to the 2 century mark but there’s no fact checking here other than the fact, Brix food is top notch and perfect for Lombard. I think the great smell of their bread goes to his head sometimes…
It will go to your head too…
Hey take the poll below and let everyone know about your favorite sandwich. If you got a great story about a pizza be sure and leave a comment.
Well, here’s my first story about Lombard.
It’s about the guys at the Esquire Barbershop in downtown Lombard. Marcus, Pete, Jack and Joe, they’re all good guys and great barbers! The shop is located on the north side of St. Charles Rd. between Main St. and Park right across from Sweet Streets. You can’t miss them. I’ve been going to Esquire since I moved into Lombard. This place is the kind of place my Grandfather use to take me. Guys sitting around talking about, well about guy stuff and getting a real hair cut. They use straight razors for shaves and it’s always a clean cut and the conversation is always great.
Marcus the Owner of the shop talks about bring in CD’s, he’s not kidding. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve brought in some music and said you guys have to hear this. It’s a great place to get your hair cut!
In case you’re wondering about the music that’s local to Lombard too! Big Dog Music Design is right here in Lombard. Check out their site they’ve got some great music.
