Review: Crain’s Chicago Business
“Gibsons and Wildfire steakhouses may have gotten there first, but Houston-based Perry’s Steakhouse & Grille is outclassing them both in west suburban Oakbrook Center, where it recently opened its first out-of-state venture.

That includes McDonald’s Corp. CEO Don Thompson, who has been spotted in the dining room (his office is nearby).
