Ten Mile House

Ten Mile House
1700 Central St, Evanston, IL 60201


As soon as you walk into Ten Mile House,
the scent of smoked barbecue invites you in,
to a bright and open space with a big bar and an open kitchen
A wood burning stove is in view with a fire blazing,
with pizza’s sliding in and out the glimpse is amazing
The decor is comfy and homey, yet sleek and contemporary,
and the menu is a modern take on American comfort food that is anything but ordinary

Excited to see it a full house,
and glad I had called for a reservation before hand,
with a hungry stomach,
the last thing I’d want to do is wait while I sit or stand
The menu offered a variety of soups, salads, fish and barbecued meats,
and the pizza which is cooked in the wood oven is a popular item that most come to try and eat
Yet despite a busy kitchen,
I was impressed with the timeliness of the food being prepared,
and one look at the TMH pizza I had ordered,
the last thing I’d ever want to do is share

The pizza came straight out of the oven with a golden crust that was soft and chewy,
White cheddar, pork shoulder, bacon, garlic, crispy onions sprinkled on top,
and the bbq sauce soaked into the crust made it delightfully gooey
But with a variety of other toppings for the pizza,
and other food on the menu,
there’s always something new to try
Ten Mile House has a wonderful brunch and dinner combo for whatever time you decide to drop by

Popular items include,
The Pepper Jack Stuffed Tater Tots,
The Crispy Grilled Cheese, Fried Chicken,
And acclaimed lunch item The Dude…
which is a Cinnamon Roll sandwich with sausage, egg, and maple bacon
a twist from the old to the new is delightful to take in

With history that comes with the Ten Mile House name,
it marks a prominent time in Evanston’s past,
To being the first public gathering point in 1836,
it was brought back in 2014,
to carry that name again and this time make it last!
