Rockford, Illinois has so many amazing options when it comes to delicious food. In a recent thread on Reddit, users shared some of their favorite spots in the area. To be honest, now I have places on my bucket list!

In my opinion, Reddit is the place to go if you're looking for tips and suggestions. I personally love to go down the conspiracy theory side of the platform, but regardless it's entertaining. You can also go down hyper-local sub-Reddits like this one I found!

People listed some of their favorite places in the area for food, and the suggestions did not disappoint. I completely agree on the ones I've been to and have added ones I haven't to my must-try list! Check it out!

This is a Scandinavian restaurant in Rockford, which excites me because I'm Scandinavian! (I guess lol!) So many people labeled this as a 'fantastic place for breakfast.' Their menu has me curious and hungry now. My friend and I have been plotting to go here for a while now, so I'm gonna have to keep pestering if so many are saying it's that good.
