If you're like me, breakfast can be any meal.

Breakfast for dinner is an amazing option most of us don't go in on.

When I saw Stacker's Signature Breakfast Foods In Every State list, I knew immediately I needed to see what came up for Illinois.

What I found was something I have eaten in years and now, I totally need some.

Stacker:

At the heart of America, Illinois is definitely known for its salt-of-the earth, no-frills breakfasts like eggs and bacon. But another favorite can be found at breakfast chain Walker Bros.

At Walker Bros. with locations in Wilmette, Arlington Heights, Glenview, Lake Zurich, Lincolnshire, and closest to Rockford, in Schaumburg.

According to Daily Herald, "the apple pancake remains a house favorite" and that's exactly why Stacker referred to them as Illinois' Signature Breakfast Food.

It's been eons since I've had a plate of apple pancakes.

Using the keywords "apple pancakes" in Rockford on Yelp, I found Fresco at The Gardens as the one and only spot for apple pancakes in Rockford.

My mom enjoyed her apple pancakes and I had simple eggs your way breakfast meal. Everything was delicious.

Sounds amazing but are there other restaurants in the Rockford area that offer apple pancakes too? Tell us!
