Sometimes you just don't want to fly across the country for the perfect fast food burger!

The older I get, the more I realized how lucky I was to grow up in Schaumburg with more restaurants than I ever needed, but, still, when I moved to L.A. I realized Schaumburg didn't have everything.

And you know what, neither does Rockford.

What is it about those restaurants that we 'can't have' that makes us want them so much! Chowhound put together a list of restaurants they wish would go National, but we'll be selfish and just hope these spots come to Rockford.

Which of these National Chains do you wish would come to Rockford?

  • In-N-Out Burger
  • White Castle
  • Friendly's
  • Bojangles' Famous Chicken 'n Biscuits
  • Whataburger
  • Tim Hortons
