Great experience here! Welcoming staff and great Greek food! Definitely a modern twist on traditional Greek dishes which makes this place unique and a place to try. I had the Pastitsio, it was big and hearty and full of flavor. Definitely want to come back and try the lamb chops! I invited you to come in
Chrissoulas Restaurant.

Love Libertyville. School districts are fabulous. The community is safe and beautiful. Wonderful place to raise a family. Unfortunately, Libertyville's economy is structured around car dealerships and restaurants, and that's basically it. For your groceries or clothing shopping, you will likely be spending in other towns such as Vernon Hills.
Libertyville is a great place to raise children. The schools are excellent, the town is quaint and clean and the overall vibe is pretty friendly. It isn't a very good place to be once the children are finished with the district schools because the property taxes and such are very high, but it makes for a wonderful schooling district. The train station is pretty close to where I live which makes it very easy to get into Chicago--only about an hour train ride, and the library is absolutely splendid (amongst other public service things). I highly recommend living here; I have enjoyed it over the last thirteen years.
