SLOW-FOOD is all about attraction not promotion. The rig and smell attracts - The food is the promotion.

Please call me for your Party or Event requests @ 630 995 5583.


I'm Dave and I started Slow Food to share my passion for slowing down, and enjoying a great meal together. 

I specialize in slow-cooked award winning food: Always remembering "Flavor doesn't happen in a hurry" 

* Slow Smoked Choice Meats
* Fresh Made Sides and Sauce
* Real Wood Smoke

* Wood Fired - Real Chicago Brick Oven Pizza.

Some people think life is too short, so fast is the way to go. Slow Food challenges that by saying, life's to short not to slow down, especially when sharing time with people you care about.

I am blessed by each and everyone of you, for your kind comments. It keeps me coming back day after day. I am grateful. 

Thank you All. Dave

Customer Reviews:

Dave thanks so very much for the great food and allowing me to just enjoy Carlos birthday party. When I asked my Mom if I should do the party myself she said "No Way - Call Dave at Slow Food and let him cater it, You can then just sit back and have fun" She was 100% right. Again thank you Dave -  Renee   

What great food! Thank you for all of your hard work! Julia

Dave well done! When I said "You decide the menu for my pizza party" I am so glad I did. Man you nailed it. Thanks again. John   

GREAT PORK - It was a great sandwich at the race and I hope you sold out. There was only one huge problem... I had to listen to my daughter rave about the sandwich the rest of the day and ask why I could not cook that well. I was the one with the son and daughter early in the morning and they didn't even put the BBQ sauce on the pork. Great food and hope to see you back next year. B Perry 

Dave I just want to say "Your Family is amazing" Your Son Nick, Pal Jason, and your nephew Steven. I have never meet a bunch of folks that are so willing to help out. And I am a competitor. You guys set a great example. Thank you Christen and Brian.
