Guy Fieri was in Chicago yesterday filming for his popular TV show, Diners Drive-Ins & Dives.

While you can't dispute the goodness of Chicago foods, Rockford is no slouch.

We actually have some really good spots that deserve some national attention and would look great on TV while doing it.

Here are five places in Rockford that belong on Diners Drive-Ins and Dives.

1.) 15th & Chris,  201 15th Avenue

2.) Uncle Nick's, 5404 East State Street

3.) Sahara Palace, 5890 East State Street

4.) Smoke House Barbecue, 432 Harrison Street

5.) Bing's Drive-In, 3613 South Main Street
