Time Out says

It’s hard to re-create the magical paradise of Hawaii in a strip mall in Des Plaines, but Tiki Terrace gives it a valiant effort. From the thatched-roof tiki bar to the enormous Easter Island statue heads scattered throughout the space, the island theme of this kitschy spot is hard to escape. Come during the week or for a weekend lunch if you’re dying for a Spam burger—you won’t find it on the Friday- or Saturday-night menus, when guests pay $21 for a cheesy, hula-heavy island-themed show and one of a preselected group of mediocre entrées (fried coconut chicken, fried mahi mahi). Skip the fried stuff and opt for the kalua pig with a side of taro chips and a delicious tropical cocktail. The drink—combined with your tempered cynicism—will allow you to appreciate the Terrace as a fun birthday spot or staycation escape.
