A new list featuring America's best casual dining restaurants, and I wanted to find the best in Rockford.

What classifies a restaurant as a "casual dining" establishment? Well, Wikipedia defines it as "a restaurant that serves moderately-priced food in a casual atmosphere."

Now that that's covered, with a little help from Yelp! I found the best casual dining spots in town:

1. Five Forks Market - 6565 Lexus Dr.

2. Social Urban Bar & Restaurant - 509 E. State St.

3. Abreo Restaurant - 515 E. State St.

4. Lino's - 5611 E. State St.

5. Lucha Cantina - 1641 Alpine Rd.

6. Octane InterLounge - 124 N. Main St.

7. Marc's Fusion Cafe - 4133 Charles St.

8. Old Chicago Pizza & Taproom - 6280 E. State St.

10. Franchesco's Ristorante - 7128 Spring Creek Rd.
