Less to Eat on Algonquin Road

Two places on Algonquin Road where we would eat occasionally have closed recently.

One was a recent entry in the "fast casual" category, "Hungry?". The food there was generally good, but maybe just a touch pricey. Apparently just a little too pricey in this economy, as they're gone now after five years of operation.

The surprise was driving by Russell's Barbecue and finding that it was closed and the building up for sale. We would try them again sporadically, but they were never anything like my favorite place for BBQ, although they had a large local following. Apparently the Elmwood Park location is still open.
