Roadtrip Chicago to Springfield
*Little Saigon does very good Vietnamese and Thai.
*Mekong Cafe for lunch during the week; actual Laotian food from an actual Laotian.
*Coz's for Pizza.
*Luca has good NY style slices.
*Like the links from nxstasy mention, D'Arcy is the place for a horseshoe (ask for Karen, tell her Chris sent you).
*Fat Willy's in Chatham does a mean Burger and has decent specials from time to time, classic small town 'dive' bar. Stag bottles!!
*Ross Isaac is probably my favorite 'fine dining' spot these days...very dependable.
*Love the HOT basil chicken at Taste of Thai on Dirksen...ask for chopped peanuts.
