When you're trying to figure out where to eat with your significant other and "I don't know" and "I don't care" aren't names of Rockford restaurants, where do you go?

I think it's best to trust those that are willing to spend enough time to write a positive review about a restaurant.

Let's face it, it's so much easier to write a nasty review about a restaurant where the food is awful or the service was horrendous.

Thankfully TripAdvisor users are making our lives easier by writing positive reviews, so if you don't know where to eat in Rockford, check out one of these 10 places.
