The answer to the age-old question "Where do you want to go for dinner?" appears to finally be solved.

Not like this list will prevent the question from popping up ever again but more than likely it will cause an argument because TripAdvisor's 10 best restaurants might be missing your favorite Rockford joint.

Here's the list:

  1. Lino's
  2. Social Urban Bar & Restaurant
  3. Franchesco's
  4. Stockholm Inn
  5. Tavern on Clark
  6. GreenFire Restaurant Bar & Bakery
  7. Thunder Bay Grille
  8. The Stone Eagle Tavern
  9. Five Forks Market
  10. Capri

The list features some long-standing Rockford staples, as well as few new-ish additions. If anything, the "Top Restaurants in Rockford" list shows that we have a wide variety of spots that serve up the goods daily.

There are a few glaring omissions from the list of 10 however. Like, Marc's Fusion, Woodfire, The Machine Shed, and Abreo. All of them belong on the list, but at the same time, I'd have a hard time moving any of the TripAdvisor recommended off the list.

Do you feel the same? What would be on your personal list of 10 most recommended Rockford restaurants? Let me know!
