Featured in Tinley Live

Tinley Park loves it’s classic rock, which may be a bit of an understatement. From the amphitheater on the southern edge of town, to the village’s taverns, breweries and restaurants, to the stage of the Music in the Plaza series, it could easily be considered the backbone of our continually evolving and increasingly diverse music scene. If that flavor of music suits you, Five Guys Named Moe is not to be missed.
