Discover Western Illinois

Much of Western Illinois features a small-town feel that is reflected in the number of traditional individual grills and restaurants. All of the small towns in the region have their own iconic eateries, a number of which have been in business for many years. The urban areas of Western Illinois offer fine-dining options like prime rib and lobster in a white-tablecloth setting. The population centers of the western part of the state are also home to many national restaurant chains. International food can also be found in the region at authentic Asian, Mexican, and Italian establishments. And that's not to mention the area’s numerous barbecue smokehouses and great array of combination bar-and-grill restaurants featuring unique in-house menus.
