DeKalb Chili's to open later this month


DeKALB – Fans of Chili’s have been waiting patiently for the doors to open at the new location at 2370 Sycamore Road in DeKalb.

They now can breathe a little easier, as the restaurant is expected to open Oct. 23, DeKalb Principal Planner Dan Olson said.

The site was formerly a Ruby Tuesday, which closed unexpectedly in July 2016 along with the other franchise-operated locations across the state. Renovations have been underway throughout the summer.

Other locations close to DeKalb are about 20 miles away, in Elgin, Batavia and Aurora.
