Two great surprises this morning, a restaurant I just discovered and a pretty delicious looking quesadilla to warm you up on this freezing cold Friday.

Being a part of the Rockford community for the last seven and a half years has made me pretty familiar with restaurants.

I would even say more than 'pretty' familiar... which is why I was super surprised this morning to hear there's a restaurant inside the Benson Stone building!

Did you know that?

It's called HearthRock Cafe and it's part of this week's 'Rockford Region Restaurant Week.'

By the way, today is Friday so there are only a few days left in this Restaurant Week so, don't miss your chance to take advantage of these specials. 

That includes the 'Get Smoked' Lunch Combo at Hearthrock.


Why have I never tried that before?!

You have today and tomorrow to grab one and let me know what you think!
