Top outdoor seating in Naperville, according to Yelp

Exterior architecture of Naperville-Downtown Lou Malnati's Pizzeria

With spring in full force, it’s time to enjoy some of Chicagoland’s top-notch al fresco dining. Here are the top five rated restaurants with outdoor seating in Naperville, according to data from Yelp.

No. 1- Lou Malnati’s Pizzeria, 131 W. Jefferson Ave.

From Ellen M: “Rockin.  Love that flaky crust.  This particular Lou Malnati’s is cool because it’s housed in the old firehouse – it’s pretty difficult to replicate this kind of ambiance.  They raise the doors in the summertime, and there are a few actual outdoor tables.”

No. 2- Schmaltz Deli, 1512 N. Naper Blvd.

From Rand M: “Terrific corned beef, nice and full of garlic.  They stuff their sandwiches full of meat which is appreciated since you are paying $9 a sandwich.  Pastrami is excellent also.  Traditional deli atmosphere but they have a lot of seating on one side of the shop.  They also have outdoor seating.”

No. 3- Meson Sabika, 1025 Aurora Ave.

From Jimma J: “By far, the best tapas I’ve ever had! There is dedication and effort put into every dish that comes out of the kitchen. I’ve come here always for special events and the servers really care and make the experience well worth it. that being said, you have to expect to spend quite a bit of money while dining here. There are so many good dishes that I don’t even know where to begin on recommending dishes. Just try what sounds good and you won’t be disappointed. The restaurant was made into an old mansion and they’ve done well to preserve the old estate and property so it’s very unique and intimate. Weather permitting, eating outdoors is also a really good treat as well. Well worth the price.”

No. 4- Kreger’s Brat and Sausage Haus, 605 N. Ellsworth St.

From Howard L: ”This was indeed a nice stop for a brat lunch.  I hadn’t been back here in years when it was first a neighborhood gem of a grocery, then a sausage shop, and now since Jan 2013, a sausage shop serving lunch.   Colleagues and I came in for a weekday lunch and beat the crowd by showing up at about 11:45am, and a surprisingly long line did subsequently form on this day.  I had their brat lunch deal for $6.88 – their original brat with in my case sauerkraut and mustard, and with chips and a soda can.  It’s also a nice quiet place to have a good lunch conversation while enjoying a fresh tasting home made brat.  I also bought for take-home a pound ($5.99/lb) of their enticing turkey-cranberry-orange brats, amongst various brat selections in their freezer (haven’t tried yet but looking forward to it).  Will be back again I think.”

No. 5- Jason’s Deli, 1735 Freedom Dr.

From Bernice R: “Jason’s Deli, as expected because duh it’s a deli, houses a copious amount of meat. However, equally important, it also carries a huge selection of veggies, dressings, and other goodies in its salad bar. Not only does it have a good selection, its always fresh. Seriously, they have someone constantly replenishing every item. And for an added bonus, it’s reasonably priced. Besides the salad bar, the fountain drinks are ace too. They got their own brand of drinks along with commonly found brands. Free refills and they have soft serve cream along the counter. Score! Also, the place is kept really clean and they a have a lot of tables for outdoor seating when it’s nice out. This is the first Jason’s Deli I’ve been to in Illinois, and even though its a chain, I liked one in particular. The layout and location are great!”
