What Should Go Here? Old House of Hughes

The old restaurant has a nice spot along Route 30 and near the Metra station. What would you like to see there?

The fate of the  was decided in September 2011, when the business auctioned off everything inside. Since then, it's sat empty. 

Located at 201 E. Maple St., it's in a nice spot right next to the Metra lot location, a place commuters could grab a drink after work or meet their families for dinner.

So what would you like to see in its place?

House of Hughes' sister location in Crestwood closed in March 2011, . Until closing, the restaurant operated under the name "The Station House," but ownership wouldn't say whether they had any potential buyers.

What should go here? Tell us in the comments.

Definitely something to attract commuters, breakfast related or happy hour place.

A coffee shop/bakery is a great idea. I've been saying for years that this town needs a good bakery (Like Weber's Bakery in Chicago) or Fine Thai Cuisine restaurant.

Breakfast lunch and dinner Buffet. We need something like that in New Lenox

A wrecking ball would be a nice start
