Number one comes at no surprise.

Facebook. It spreads photos of puppies and babies... and some negative news from time to time, but it's also a great way to judge what's popular and what's not.

So that's where this list comes from, Facebook information.

NBC 5 is reporting that these are the top ten chain restaurants in Illinois. Lucky us, five of them (and the best five according to this list) are in Rockford!

  1. Portillo's
  2. Culver's
  3. Tilted Kilt
  4. Potbelly
  5. Giordano's
  6. Shake Shack
  7. Cooper's Hawk
  8. Gino's East
  9. Blaze Pizza
  10. Twin Peaks

I have never heard of Blaze Pizza or Twin Peaks, but I do wish we had a Shake Shack and Cooper's Hawk in Rockford!
