Omar Kardoush bought Jim’s Liquors, a Mundelein institution, about ten years ago. “I still get called ‘Jim’ a lot,” he says with a laugh. Today, he also owns Oak Trail Taphouse, one door over from the liquor store, to showcase his love of craft beer, small batch whiskey and modern Mediterranean food.
Cousin-in-law Carl Backe, who serves as general manager, says Oak Trail Taphouse attracts a wide range of customers, from families looking for a comfortable spot (and a great smash burger, wings and cheese curds) to grandparents up for a game of bingo and a craft cocktail.
