Editorial Review of Candlelite Chicago

Candelite's moderately priced menu leaves plenty of money left over for the pockets. The strong point is the half-dozen sandwiches; the Sloppy Giuseppe, the crispy shrimp roll, the Italian beef and all of their colleagues are all served with a heaping pile of French fries and take a less-than-$10 bite out of your debit card. The pizzas, which are big enough to serve a foursome after a partners game, are slightly more expensive (but no less appealing), with most between $15 and $20. If you're hungry only for billiards, you can snack on something lighter from the appetizer slate. With just one table, Candlelite is not quite a full pool hall, but you're not going to find a better place to play on the Windy City side of the Chicago-Evanston border.

The restaurant's name is a bit of a misnomer; there is nothing inside this West Rogers Park eatery that suggests a romantic evening. Owing largely to slick panoramic stadium photographs and a handful of plasma televisions, Candlelite Chicago has more style than a fashion show. The building's face is not the prettiest, but it's the inside that counts, and here it scores. Thanks to some very skilled contractors, the rehabbed interior, a maroon and black paint scheme nicely matched with dark-toned brick, has the spit and polish of a CEO's wingtips.

Parking is available in the Midas lot across the street.

Average cost: $10-$20
