I was disappointed in January but it was perfect tonight. Medium filet was tender and had a great flavor. The vegetables were cooked in salted water which made them very good and full of flavor too. The rolls were hot and actually seemed better than other times as they didn't have the gross "yeasty" flavor. We will go back!

Krekel's

Reviewed By Gary S - Decatur, Illinois

Sure ice cream is fine, but there's nothing special about the food that warrants a number one rating.

Better food at every lower rated establishment.

It's not that the food is terrible, it's just not remarkable.

I keep hoping it will be better each time I try It, but it's just not.

It must be that it's been around for a long time..... with mediocre food.

Stopped by Paco’s with my husband around 5:30 on Wednesday evening. Had such a great experience here. We were seated right away when we entered.

Service: The service here was fantastic. Everyone from the hostess to our waitress was so incredibly friendly and prompt. Can’t get better service than this.

Food: I loved everything we had. We started with the complimentary Jalapeño Corn Muffins which were so delicious. For an appetizer we had the Guacamole and Chips which were equally delicious. For my main dish, I had the Chicken Wrap with Sweet Potato Fries. The chicken wrap was good but the sweet potato fries were outstanding. One of the best I’ve ever had. My husband also really like his signature tacos.

If you’re in the area, you need to come here! Every minute spent here way great!

Reviewed By Cka7376 - Lake Lillian, Minnesota

We get to Decatur/Forsyth area a few times a year...this is one of my favorites there. They have great bread they bring to the table, good selection of appetizers and I had the plank salmon and it was delicious. We had drinks, several specialties. The others in the group liked what they ordered...except for one person who ordered potato soup and she just didn't like how it was made...personal choice, of course.

Steak 'n Shake

Steak ‘n Shake is a classic American brand famous for the Original Steakburger™ and hand-dipped Milk Shakes. Stop in today for breakfast, lunch, dinner or late night. Dine in, drive thru or carryout.

Reviewed By Taylor B - Chicago, Illinois

Route 51 is to North-South what Route 66 was to East-West. It was a historic and fabled highway that many blacks took from Mississippi and Louisiana in the 1920s and 1930s to find jobs and begin new lives in Chicago. Recently, my wife and I drove along Route 51 in Illinois, through old towns such as xxxx and xxxx and xxxxx. We stopped at an Olive Garden in Decatur and a Steak 'n Shake in Forsyth. Forsyth? There isn't even a Steak 'n Shake in Chicago. However, since Steak 'n Shake was founded in Normal, Illinois, in 1934, I suppose it makes sense that Forsyth has a franchise. It's like home cooking, a friendly gathering place for high school football and basketball fans. Everybody orders Original Steakburgers, the most popular item on the menu, two hot-off-the-griddle steakburgers with American cheese, lettuce, pickles, tomato, onion, ketchup and mustard on a toasted bun with the signature thin and crispy fries. Wash it down with a chocolate or strawberry or banana milk shake or an orange freeze. Folks in Forsyth also like Chicago-style hot dogs.

Reviewed By Brenda W - Decatur, Illinois

My hubby and I usually don't do Red Lobster unless it's a special occasion because of the prices. But we just went to this Red Lobster on a Sunday afternoon. There was no waiting, the server was amazingly friendly and attentive. The food was better than usual. Wishing we had the money to do this more often!

El Rodeo Mexican Restaurant

Reviewed By BelikinBeer - Bradenton, Florida

I guess this is where folks from Decatur go for Mexican cuisine. They were full and bustling. The staff was extremely fast. We had our cervezas quickly and the salsa and tortilla chips were all on our table within 2-3 minutes. Our food was equally fast and sizzling hot. What they slightly slipped up on is bringing the complete meal together. Part of my colleagues dinner showed up about 5-6 minutes after the other dishes. Beer is cold and food is good.
