The village board on Monday granted final approval for a Lazy Dog Restaurant and Bar to be built on the corner of a busy intersection in Buffalo Grove.
The Buffalo Grove Village Board sent a development petition to the Planning and Zoning Commission in August.
The commission recommended approval of the petition and sent it back to the board.
All members of the village board voted in favor of approving a preliminary plan ordinance during a board meeting Monday.
Lazy Dog is set to bring its made-from-scratch American food and drink to the corner of Lake Cook Road and Route 83.
The popular restaurant features a casual dining atmosphere and a dog-friendly patio.
The restaurant will be built on the northeast corner of the busy intersection, which is the last corner of the intersection awaiting development.
The lot previously housed an IHOP restaurant which has since been demolished.
Jared Taylor, who is a part of Golden Property Development, said the Huntington Beach-based restaurant started over 20 years ago.
The restaurant will employ 24-30 employees per shift, Taylor said.
It will be open from 11 a.m. to 1 a.m. Monday through Friday and 9 a.m. to 1 a.m. on Saturday and Sunday.
Village officials said Lazy Dog is poised to “become a go-to spot for locals and visitors alike.”
Construction is expected to begin soon and the restaurant will open in the summer of 2024.
