One of the Worst Restaurants Ever Used to be in Rockford
There are plenty of great places in Rockford, and some that aren't so great, but this one might be the worst ever.
There's a place that was so bad, and historically awful bad, the Cooking Channel took notice and gave them a spot on a list.
The Cooking Channel highlighted the 10 Worst Restaurant Fails, and right next to Death Row Dinners in London (yes, a death row themed eatery) and Hulk Hogan's Pastamania in Bloomington, Minnesota is a long-forgotten Rockford eatery.
Do you remember American Delight & Taste of Africa (Plus Mexican Food)? Probably not, but for some odd reason a restaurant with one of the most insane names ever, is now known as one of the worst restaurant fails of all time too.
When you have to stare at a restaurant's name for a few minutes just to understand what is going on, it's never a good sign. This American and African (plus Mexican) eatery is, sadly, closed. Now you'll never to taste that plate of hot dog-and-peanut stew nachos.
Formerly located at 1201 Sandy Hollow Road in Rockford, it looks like American Delight & Taste of Africa (Plus Mexican Food) closed without much fanfare in 2012 according to the Rockford Register Star.
