Papa Marcos* is a family-owned gem of a Mediterranean style eatery located in downtown Waukegan. Their top-notch service delivers on their mission to provide an informal dining experience that makes people feel at home. Papa Marcos serves up everything from Chicago style sandwiches to their specialty, Middle East cuisine. This Bernie’s Book Bank driver frequents the delectable chicken shawarma and hearty chicken and gyros lunch special. Both are heavy in size and flavor, yet still light on your wallet at $5.99. Additionally, they have a unique chickpea and fava bean falafel that is well worth a taste. Overall, we highly recommend this establishment for its fine eats, great service, and affordable deals. Stop on over at Papa Marcos, hopefully we’ll see you there.
