Friend of mine (and her brother) opened a sushi lounge in downtown Elgin. I've been averaging two times a week since they opened. Food is so fucking good. I haven't had a bad or even "average" plate yet.

If any of you guys eat sushi, I very strongly recommend checking it out.

Kubo Sushi
70 S Grove Ave, Elgin, 60120

I've also tried a majority of their specialty rolls and man, they are just fantastic.


My favorite roll - Diablo (typically get it with hamachi). I get it every time I go.




Tried this last night - hamachi toro.

Looks delicious. I like Sushi Station, not sure if you’ve ever tried it. Will make a trip here though that looks very good.

Sushi Station is trash compared to this place. Cheaper, but trash.

I used to go to Wok n Fire a lot, mostly b/c of their happy hour prices.

How are the prices? Saw pics of the place as they were beginning to open but didn't know they finally opened. I also want to try Kura in Schaumburg.

I don't find the pricing to be out of line for a traditional sushi restaurant.

Looks good. May check this out even though it’s a decent drive for us

Check out Kura in Schaumburg. Makes sushi station look like shit.

They just opened up and we’ve already been there twice and went to one of their Texas locations in May.

Lol at people even mentioning Sushi Station. I've been once and will never go back...complete garbage! Our go to sushi joint by us is Woow on Randall Rd. Always excellent.


Will put this place on the list for sure. Still want to try Kyoto in Crystal Lake as well have heard its really good.

Sushi Station in Elgin is so much better than the one in Schaumburg. but it is still the basic bitch of Sushi places.

The only one I've been to was the Elgin location...lol. Schaumpton was worse???
Never been to the Schaumburg location. Elgin was a quick pickup and go for lunch and didn’t have too many options. Didn’t see too many options in that area.

There is only one Sushi station and it is in Rolling Meadows.

Schaumburg has Kura which is a much nicer, Better built conveyor system revolving sushi bar with really good sushi.
