The closest I know is Games Plus in Mount Prospect. But here's the yahoo data for your zipcode and out:

I went to school/lived in the area until about '01, so I'm a little out of touch.
When I left, the best and nicest place I'd seen was Games Plus. It's a hike (25 minute each way assuming no traffic from Wheaton), but it's well worth the trip. Fantastic play area, great backstock, excellent store.
There really wasn't anything in the Wheaton area similar to that (since the two book/comic places went under). There was a few comic/game stores in Naperville, but I don't know if they had open gaming areas.
So, short answer: "There weren't any in the Wheaton area as of '01."

I live in La Grange and I second everything already said here - about there not being a really good option local to Wheaton and that Games Plus is worth the trip.

Note that if you are interested in in-store game playing Games Plus is ideal - they are really strong in this area.
