When and how did your business get started?

I grew up in the restaurant business and have a passion for food. I moved to Yorkville eight years ago and felt like the town needed more great food and drink establishments. 

Legends was born through my love and passion for the business! We serve hearty American pub fare created with fresh ingredients rising above standard pub fare.

What is your business best known for?

We are best know for our burgers, chicken sandwiches and of course our one of a kind jumbo wings and shrimp available in our signature dry rub! Also tossed in your choose of our many sauces.

Why did you choose the town you did to open your business? 

I moved to Yorkville with my wife and four kids. We love this town and plan to raise our family here. (Read more about why the Mokena location was opened here.)

What's something interesting about your business your customers might not know?

We sponsor local men's softball teams, kids little league teams and host karaoke every Tuesday night! We are a family owned business that's prides ourselves on great food served in a clean and friendly atmosphere. My wife Penny and I run and operate our Yorkville and our new second location in Mokena.
