The town of Midlothian, tucked away southwest of Chicago, is a surprising microcosm of the city’s dining scene. Despite its relatively small population, many different cuisines can be found here. Italian food is a common find with your options ranging from high-end dining to a cheesy, comforting slice of pizza. You can also find mainstays like Chinese and Mexican food as well as spicy, succulent barbecue. No small Midwestern village would be complete without a few welcoming diners and cafes, and Midlothian is no exception. If you have a sweet tooth, make sure to track down some pastries or frozen custard for dessert.
