Meatheads, a fast-casual restaurant that provides high-quality, fresh, never-frozen ingredients, is opening a new restaurant in Oak Lawn, Illinois Monday, March 30. This marks the restaurant’s 16th location and the 14th location in Illinois. The new location is 2,000 square feet and seats 90 guests, plus patio seating. The design and decor is similar to current Meatheads locations, with a local community mural and contemporary modern finishes. Members of the Oak Lawn chamber of commerce and the Oak Lawn Village Board will help celebrate the opening with a ribbon cutting on March 30 at 10:30 a.m. Proceeds from the pre-opening weekend will support the Oak Lawn Park District, St. Catherine of Alexandria, and Oak Lawn Baseball.
Not just burgers, Meatheads serves a variety of menu options, including: chicken sandwiches, chop salad, veggie melt, chicken tenders, New England-style hot dog, hand-dipped milkshakes, and more. All items are fresh and made-to-order.
Meatheads is an active “cowmunity” member in all cities that have a restaurant. “Meatheads of the Month” recognizes exceptional local high school athletes who demonstrate determination, hustle, and hard work. Every month athletes from local high schools are selected to be nominees, the public votes, and once selected the picture of the athlete is proudly displayed in a Meatheads store for the year. The Voracious Reading Program encourages kids to read more books over the summer break. This year, 150,000 kids will be participating in the program. The Meathead of the Game celebrates young athletes in organized sports who choose to participate in real games, rather than play video games, and is designed to reward determination, hustle, and hard work in local youth athletes. Meatheads also offers non-profit groups, schools, and other community organizations the opportunity to raise funds by hosting special events in-store.
