Where a healthy community comes to dine in the heart of Hyde Park!

Litehouse's Story.

– Eric opened Litehouse Whole Food Grill with the hope of bringing healthy fast food to his community in the most wholesome way. –

As a Christian, I decided to take the ‘Great Commission’ seriously; going into all the world and spreading the gospel of Christ.  I’ve always inquired to God about MORE.  What else can I do to spread the love God has showed me in ways obvious and some more elusive?  Well, at the same time I had an equally intriguing dilemma: feeding the family!  My wife is a vegetarian, my oldest daughter is a meataterian (if that exists) and my other 3 kids kind of get stuck in the middle.  I, myself, like meat, but love vegetarian options such as tofu and fresh veggies.  So if you can imagine, feeding my family wasn’t easy at all.  Most places only served one or the other, and the options were very limited and most times lacked flavor.  Then my wife went on a reading spree.  She studied what went into our bodies and threw away everything I liked.  I said, “Oh boy, I better fix this, before I starve!” LoL And thus the LiteHouse Whole Food Grill was created; Always friendly, always Whole, always Organic, & Always Really Really Good.

The LiteHouse Whole Food Grill; the Light of Christ and Lite Foods all under one roof.

Come in, you’ll be happy in here,

Mr. Litehouse Grill
