Quigely’s offers a traditional Irish menu that is satisfying to the taste buds and won’t break the bank. Items include appetizers, wraps, sandwiches, soups and salads, entrees, and breakfasts. Somewhere on this menu you are sure to find something you will enjoy.
On Saturday and Sunday mornings, Quigley’s offers breakfast from 10am until noon. Enjoy a traditional Irish breakfast (Grilled Irish bacon, black and white pudding, two eggs, two bangers served with golden brown fried mushrooms, and fresh grilled tomato served with light rye toast) for less than $9. Or just enjoy some French toast for $5.95.
Have the kids with you? There are plenty of affordable items for them day or night. A kids breakfast (one egg and hash brown) is $1.95 or for lunch or dinner or they could enjoy a grilled cheese, cheeseburger, or corn dog. Each of these is $5 or less.
Wondering what you should try? I personally love the reuben with paper-thin deli style corned beef piled on light rye. It’s served with horseradish and brown mustard and grilled to perfection for $9.95. Or try the Bangers and Mash (Irish sausages served over champ with a unique blend of sauteed onions, green and red peppers & topped with a white sauce) which are always a hit and only $12.95. All sandwiches are served with Irish Chips, coleslaw or multigrain couscous.
For dessert, do not forget to try the Irish Cream Bash Pie, which is a white and dark Irish crème liqueur pie served on a chocolate crumb crust for only $5.95.

The History Of Quigley’s
One of the coolest parts of this enchanting Irish Pub is the History behind it. Quigley’s is a true and authentic Irish pub, with much of what’s inside coming straight from Ireland. The pub was created, designed and built in Ireland and then shipped over here to Naperville!
The wood, glasswork, fireplace, bookcases, and other items are all authentic and brought over from Dublin.
I love that this pub resides in the historic Jefferson Hill building, which was built in 1845, only three years before the horrific potato famine took place in Ireland. When you visit Quigley’s, you can see a lot of the historic Naperville building still intact.
Quigley’s Community Events
Quigley’s offers a variety of entertainment and events through their pub. One of the greatest is their St. Patrick’s Day Blowout. The first Tuesday of every month is Pub Trivia night, beginning at 7pm and is sponsored by West Suburban Irish. They also offer the latest telecast of the world cup or rugby matches. Don’t forget their band lineup.
Have an event you’d like to host? Quigley’s can also help you with that, too.
