Road trips happen. Knowing where to eat along the way though, can be a hassle.
Sure you can consult places like TripAdvisor or Yelp, but do you know anyone who has actually reviewed a restaurant on TripAdvisor or Yelp?
I mean, both of those sites are handy, but for me, the thing I always go to is word of mouth.
If people, just like myself, are on the road and they find a hidden gem restaurant along the way, they are going to talk about it.
Sometimes, it might be the best part of the trip.
So that said, I decided to ask you what your favorite small-town Illinois restaurants are on Facebook.
I received over 100 comments, and while I was only looking for places in small towns, I managed to come up with 24 that qualified and threw in my top pick for good measure.
If you know me, there's a very good chance you should have some clue as to what my all-time favorite small-town restaurant is, but check out the list below and see if one of your faves is on there too.
