May 6 is 'No Diet Day' and that's one fake holiday we can definitely get behind.

All fake holidays are not created equal, but 'no diet day?' I'm all over that one.

The idea behind the day is that we're about half way through the year and you need a break from any resolutions you made at the beginning of the year.

While I have not been sticking to any strong diet this year, I'm still totally gonna use this 'no diet day' thing as an excuse to splurge.

Without further ado, here are the five places you should splurge in Rockford, and we know they're worth it because we took Ate One Five to all of these.

Buddy's Burgers - 6551 E Riverside Blvd, Rockford

Smokin' Coop BBQ Pit - 2022 US-20 BUS, Belvidere

Dari Ripple -105 S State St, Belvidere

LaCreasia's Taste of Soul - 330 College Ave, Rockford

15th & Chris - 201 15th Ave. Rockford
