Ditka's Restaurant at Arlington Trackside

Da Coach is back!  Join us at the recently opened Ditka's Restaurant at Arlington Trackside.  After a hiatus of close to 25 years, Coach Ditka has opened his third Chicago area location at Arlington Trackside, where he operated a restaurant in the late 1980's.

The restaurant has been in the works for the past year and has a number of private event space for corporate and social events.  The staff at Ditka's is opening up their Hall of Fame room exclusively for the Schaumburg Wine Meetup group.  It has a spacious covered patio with high boy tables, so if it rains, we're covered (so to speak).

Members will be able to order off the restaurant menu which includes some great starters such as fresh calamari, Coach's pot roast nachos, grilled habanero chicken wings, cheeseburger, Cuban pork, and meatball sliders, and a nice assortment of artisan pizzas.

Wine run's from $7.00 and up with beer prices from $4.50.

The waitstaff will be running individual tabs with a credit card and will be adding a 20% gratuity.

The best part is we can open this event up to  220 members, so it will definitely be THE place to be on August 7th.

And who knows, maybe da Coach will stop by!
