Papa Joe's Pasta and Pizza/Woody's Chicago StyleBarrington | Website
It's a Chicago-style hot dog stand; it's a pizza joint - this dual-identity restaurant offers a campy '50s and '60s theme in downtown Barrington. Order Papa Joe's pizza by the slice or pie; they've scored local awards for their thin-crust. Chose from pasta dishes with your choice of noodle and sauce, or opt for a stromboli -- Papa Joe himself insists it's the best in the northwest suburbs. The Woody's portion of the space offers authentic Chicago-style dogs (Vienna only, of course), Maxwell Street Polish sausage, Italian beef, Northwoods chili and bistro-style soups. Go au courant and get an order of mini-dogs, a hot-dog version of the ubiquitous sliders. Both businesses do a big catering biz: Woody's offers old-fashioned hot dog and popcorn carts for your party while Papa Joe's serves up buffets, sandwich, pasta and fajita bars.
