Winfield is home to one of the oldest taverns in the Chicago suburbs, John's Restaurant and Tavern (formerly John's Buffet), founded 1921 by Polish immigrant John Karwoski, grandfather of the current owner, John Karwoski III. John Karwoski was instrumental in the political and economical development of Winfield, and it was his guidance and leadership that took a fledgling prairie town clinging to existence after the railroad boom went bust, and turned it into a viable and livable village.
