Tilted Kilt to open Jan. 30 at Westfield Louis Joliet

January 19, 2012

JOLIET — The new Tilted Kilt Pub & Eatery in Joliet is tentatively scheduled to open Jan. 30, the company announced Thursday.

The Joliet location in Westfield Louis Joliet mall is among 20 the restaurant chain has under construction. A Bolingbrook Tilted Kilt opened in December.

Tilted Kilt is known for the uniform worn by its female wait staff: short kilts and plaid bikini-style tops.

The bar features an international beer list. The menu includes fish and chips, shepherd’s pie, hamburgers and other items.

The Joliet restaurant will employ 120 full-time workers and 80 part-timers, the company said.

The 5,000-square-foot restaurant fills a space last used by Bishop’s Buffet more than a decade ago.

Tilted Kilt has 53 restaurants open. The company said another 25 are in development.
