Business is b[l]ooming this spring at Awesome Hand Gaming. We literally added a handful of locations – five – to the Awesome Hand family! We’ve hit the ground running, with plans for our characteristic events and slot gaming opportunities in the works. To stay updated on all events at Awesome Hand Gaming locations in your area, check out our events page.
Mariscos El Charco
Elgin’s most festive restaurant, Mariscos El Charco, partnered with Awesome Hand this spring. Mariscos’s vibrant, modern, and fun aesthetic compliments the truly authentic Mexican cuisine. Trust us when we say it’ll be your new favorite lunch and dinner spot; we’ve tried it and are already craving seconds (and thirds and fourths)! The tacos and seafood transport you to a tropical oasis far, far away.
Marisco’s is family-owned and operated, so it’s no wonder they decided to partner with Awesome Hand Gaming, another big, happy family! Visit the Mariscos website here to view their menu and place an order!

Sports fans, unite! Hickory Pit is McHenry’s favorite sports and BBQ hot spot. Owned by restaurant industry veterans, Hickory Pit joined the Awesome Hand Gaming team in March of this year. The aroma of fresh-smoked barbecue favorites – ribs, pulled pork, brisket, and more – hits your nose the second you step into the restaurant, which is conveniently located off Route 120. And what would a BBQ joint be without country flair? Awesome Hand Gaming is so excited to get country at Hickory Pit! Check them out on Facebook and view their menus here.
Lucky Strike Lounge
It’s your “lucky” day! Lucky Strike Lounge of Lake Villa is another new member of the Awesome Hand fam! A Khayat Group concept, Lucky Strike is breaking convention with a speakeasy feel that makes date night or group outings a little more interesting. Keeping with the theme, it is strictly a nibble (Cheez-Its and Hershey’s Kisses) and drinks establishment; except for gamers! Luck be gamers any night: the back of Lucky Strike lounge is dedicated to gamers, who get a free personal pizza for gaming. If that doesn’t fill you up, just visit LakeHouse of Lake Villa next door, another Khayat Group concept, to load up on any of their menu items and bring it back to Lucky Strike to eat.
Location, location, location: something Channelside Tavern has in spades. Located alongside the channel of Lake Catherine in Antioch, customers happily take their phrase “Come by boat, jet ski, or snowmobile” literally, and that’s the way they like it! Channelside Tavern is your small, neighborhood bar where everyone knows your name. Live bands, a back deck, wide beer selection, and the most friendly staff around make for the perfect after-work watering hole! Check out Channelside’s Facebook page to stay in the loop of upcoming events.
La Campana – Spanish for “The Bell” – of Bloomingdale is not your average Mexican restaurant. The location, which first opened its doors in 1981, focuses on bringing flavors from the Mexican cuisine’s Aztec and Mayan roots to the forefront. Every time someone walks into La Campana, they are greeted with fresh, authentic food that just tastes like home. Gamers can chow down on fajitas, enchiladas, tamales, and tacos galore and sip on a margarita (or take a shot, we wouldn’t blame you) while enjoying their favorite games! Take a peek at La Campana’s full menu here and give them a “like” on Facebook!
