FRESH LOCAL CORN IS BACK! 
corn photo Our fabulous fresh, Illinois-grown sweet corn is back! Unsprayed with chemicals or pesticides, this is one of the best treats of summer. Great with your grilled fish or shrimp, you can drop in boiling water for a couple of minutes, or pull back the husk, remove the silk, put the husk back, soak in cold water for 15 minutes and throw on the grill with your fish. Or Jaime just boils it naked (the corn, not Jaime) for a few minutes, then finishes it for another couple of minutes on the grill to give it some nice grill marks and a little extra flavor.

PLEASE RESPECT EVERYONE...
We understand that times are stressful for us all. For Burhop's, it's especially hard, as our staff is on the front lines, dealing with the public 6 days a week. Ours is a small store, and we need to keep both our staff and our customers safe. So please. please do the following:
1) Wear a mask or face covering that covers your nose and mouth. 
Many people, especially children apparently, can be asymptomatic, i.e. have no symptoms but are still spreading the virus. The people who refuse to wear a mask are being disrespectful to everyone they come into contact with. Just because you don't feel sick doesn't mean you're not spreading the virus. Nor does it mean that you won't eventually get sick.
2) Take advantage of our curbside pickup. 
Just call with a credit card. 630-887-4700. Our fish and prepared foods are always fresh and premium quality - we will give you what you want (as long as we have it) with no contact required. We will also wrap fish for freezing, so you can have some handy for a future meal. 
3) If you want to come into the store. please LOOK FIRST, to see if there are already 8 customers in the store.
If there are already 8 customers (staff is extra), please wait outside until someone leaves.  The entry way is covered, and the weather is warm - just be sure to leave a safe distance between yourself and the next person. 
     A few weekends ago we had 3 customers who refused to cover their faces at a particularly difficult time when the store was busy and our staff was forced to ask them to leave. We are happy to take phone orders from people outside the store, and we can deliver the order to your car. There is no need to put others at risk. We have a lot of customers who are older and more vulnerable, as well as staff in the vulnerable age group. At one point on a Saturday we had to close the store for 15 minutes to sanitize because too many people had been inside, including the unmasked. 
Wearing a mask won't kill you, not wearing one 
may kill somebody else. 
KEEPING OUR CUSTOMERS & STAFF SAFE...
With restaurants closed, we should have plenty of fish, though lack of air travel may affect some availability. 
     To ease the concerns of our customers and lessen risk to our staff, we are now offering the following special services:
1) Pre-paid phone orders with a credit card - we will have them ready when you arrive, no waiting. 630-887-4700. Just grab and go. 
2) FREE CURB PICK-UP - Order with a credit card and tell us if you want it brought out to your car - just call as you arrive in front of the store and tell us what you're driving.  We can also process your credit card at your car window. The wonder of wireless technology. And if you have a credit card with the internet symbol, you can just tap and go. 
3) Phone orders, pay at pick-up. You still pay at the register, but your order is ready to go. 
     Want your fish for later? Ask us to wrap it for freezing. 
     Of course, you can just come in and shop as usual - we are constantly wiping down store surfaces, keeping things as pristine as possible. We ask that if you are not feeling well, or if you've been exposed to the virus, that you take advantage of the curbside pickup. Our staff is covering their mouths and noses, we ask that you do the same. 
     NO MORE THAN 10 PEOPLE ARE ALLOWED IN THE STORE AT ONE TIME, INCLUDING STAFF - SO PLEASE DON'T BRING THE WHOLE FAMILY! 
     We also have our prepared foods available for delivery through Doorddash - not our raw items, but sandwiches, soup, cooked entrees, prepared salads and side dishes.  Click Here for DoorDash deliveries. You'll see the menu on their site. Sale prices are not available on DoorDash orders, as they take a large fee.
