When and how did your business get started?
3Star has been a staple in the Chicago Heights community since 1936, serving the residents and especially "The Hill." I worked here prior to purchasing the business on May 25, 2013.
What is your business best known for?
3Star is a great bar, and we have started serving food again for the first time in over 5years. We have a great chicken parmesan sandwich, a HUGE cheeseburger. Everything is made fresh to order. We also have two bocce ball courts outside in our beer garden. People have been coming to play bocce at 3star for over 75 years.
Why did you choose the town you did to open your business?
I love Chicago Heights, my family has been in the Heights since 1919 and have been wanting to own my own business since I was a kid and at the age of 24, I was able to buy 3Star, and continue the traditions and the legacy.
What's something interesting about your business your customers might not know?
Something interesting that people may not know is how long we have been open and serving the Chicago Heights area, 77 years total. It has always been a family owned restaurant. We have had state senators, congressmen and representatives, even as recent as Anthony DeLuca, to Jim Thompson in the '80s.
Does your business offer a special deals card or program?
We have different specials everyday, which are posted on Facebook daily.
