Business snapshots: Sizzles, Oy's Thai Cuisine

  • Updated



At Sizzles, you’re sure to get fresh food and a friendly dining experience.

“What I am making here isn’t sold anywhere else because these recipes are my own,” Sizzles owner Mervet Nolte said. “I have found this path far more rewarding than simply trying to create a brand that has razzle dazzle, but no real substance. I assure you, everything here is dripping from my brain aimed at giving you an experience beyond just food.”

Sizzles is at 110 MacGregor Road in Lockport, and menu favorites include  award-winning burgers, shakes, ice cream and an array of fried items.

“All the fried items are fresh ingredients, freshly battered with a batter that we make,” Nolte said.

In addition to the mouthwatering food, Nolte strives to help improve the mood of her customers when they visit.

“I have always cared more about seeing happiness created for those who are just having a blah day or having a great day and we are about to make it better,” Nolte said.

Oy's Thai Cuisine

New Lenox

At Oy’s Thai Cuisine, you’ll receive authentic Thai meals prepared with love.

Oy and Bryan Hunsaker opened the restaurant at 1880 E. Lincoln Highway in New Lenox in January 2018.

“Oy is a native of Surin, Thailand,” Bryan Hunsaker said. “Prior to opening our restaurant, she cooked her favorite recipes for friends and neighbors for many years.”

Bryan Hunsaker said only the finest and freshest ingredients are used, and each customer is treated with kindness.

“Our top seller is Oy’s Famous Pad Thai, which is made with rice noodles stir fried with eggs, green onions, bean sprouts, crushed peanuts and Oy’s special sauce,” Bryan Hunsaker said. “Other favorites include our homemade egg rolls and spring rolls, tom yum soup, basil fried rice and pad mama.”
