    For all of those thrill seekers/chili-heads out there, definitely try the XXX wing challenge at Jake Melnicks. If spicy food isnít for you, they also have a great variety of delicious burgers (including an eight pound burger challenge), barbecue dishes with in-house smoked meats, hearty soups, savory sandwiches, and satisfying salads you can chow down on.

    The small plates and sushi I had there were good, the kitchen was open late and the drink menu was fun. Prices were fair, considering the location in viagra triangle. I had a great time there!

    The food was excellent, the service was spot on and the crusty hot bread they being out to start with was the best!

  • Long Thanh Restaurant in Indianapolis

    Itís located in your typical strip mall with its boring signage outside. It looked like to me a great food adventure. A run down strip mall with basic signage is always a sign of a fantastic restaurant, but in this case, it was sub par.

  • World Famous Billy Goat's Tavern & Grill in Chicago

    World Famous Billy Goat's Tavern & Grill on May 29, 2014

    by Mastication Monologues

    The first bite I took was fantastic. The kaiser roll was thick and fresh, and the beef was succulent with slightly greasy undertones. As for the pickles, they were just the right amount of sour, and the onion slice provided a nice change of texture. Plus, it wasnít very overpowering in terms of taste which made me think that it was probably a Bermuda onion. Each slice of American cheese was perfectly melted to hold the juicy patties together to form one delicious hamburger.

  • Urban Belly in Chicago

    by Eating For Sanity

    Their signature noodle soup is the Urbanbelly Ramen. Our two friends both ordered this soup and gave me the opportunity to give it a try. This one starts with a saltier pork broth and is filled with classic ramen noodles, braised pork belly, mushrooms, and a soft-boiled egg.

  • Two Brothers Tap House in Warrenville

    Two Brothers Tap House on May 06, 2014

    by 50 States of Wine

    Food was pretty typical in terms of bar and grill presentation, though the special items we ordered showed quite a bit of creativity. Everything tasted good, though some of the bread items seemed on the stale side. Sweet potato and standard fries both had great flair, but I would have preferred them a bit crispier.

    by Chicago Alphabet Soup Blog

    I have always been a huge fan of European breakfast options, but when I want a proper American breakfast, I will find myself at some Original Pancake House that isnít bursting at the seams with diners.

  • Destihl Restaurant in Champaign

    Destihl Restaurant on Apr 29, 2014

    by 50 States of Wine

    Beautiful decor, plenty of seating, and free parking next door in the parking garage with validation - nice package. Beers were decent, food was good, service well-meaning but not polished. Definitely worth a visit when in Champaign.
