From the Italian beef sandwich to the Chicago-style hot dog, beef has long been a major staple of the Illinois diet. It's a heritage that Quincy is proud to continue; the city's most respectable restaurants tend to favor classic American food, with an abundance of steakhouses, barbecue joints, and bar and grill establishments available to the discerning carnivore. If you're looking for something different, there's no lack of choice. Pizza, Mexican, and Asian options are all perennial favorites. You'll find local joints that try their hand at Chicago deep-dish pizza as well as the traditional thin crust. If you get the chance, make sure to try a pierogi, an Eastern European dumpling that's come to find popularity throughout the state.
