Smokin' Coop BBQ Pit

Reviewed By Liz S - Rockford, Illinois

A great place to come in the summer and enjoy some excellent BBQ. The pulled pork, baked beans, and potato salad are all great. It's definitely the best in the area. Seating is all outdoor under a large pavilion. Cash only. Try to come slightly before the dinner rush, around 5, as the lines get very long!

A great little seasonal ice cream shack in the middle of town. They've a great selection of ice cream treats and a nice little picnic table eating area next to the river. It doesn't take much for us to make up an excuse to drive the 11 miles there from our town.

This place has been a fixture in Belvidere for years. It is along the river with plenty of seating or the opportunity to walk along the river. Old fashioned good service and good product.

El Molcajete

Reviewed By redding679 - Poplar Grove, IL

Service is very quick and friendly. Sometimes the chips and salsa is at your table as you are first sitting down. Everything that I have ever eaten at this restaurant has been outstanding. The owner, Victor, visits each table several times to see how you are doing, sometimes he will take your order and/or deliver your food. It's not a real fancy place, but, everything is great.

This is an excellent location for a Starbucks. Located right off of the tollway I-90 Belvidere-Genoa Road exit, when going to and from Chicago along with just going to Wal-Mart to pick something up I stop here occasionally.

The service is fast and the staff makes good drinks.

My family and I love this place! And they are always super nice when we go in. My favorite flavor is White Chocolate Mousse, wish they would keep this flavor all the time.

Steam Plant Family Restaurant

Reviewed By HOTROD37 - Sycamore, Illinois

Nostalgic. Memorabilia and old pictures of Belvidere everywhere on the walls. Pictures of the old steam plant for the town and how this is one of the original buildings from that plant. Has an old diner type feel with the counter, stools and tables. Very comfortable family type place. Large menu with breakfast available all day. Daily specials. Really large number of selections available. Waitress had a good sense of humor and knew her job. Food was a little on the slow side coming out but this is a step back in time to a little slower pace. Wife and I were both happy with our selections. I'd like to try this place for breakfast one morning.

Rosati's Pizza

Reviewed By FLWfan - Lac du Flambeau, Wisconsin

Got off 90 to get gas at Walmart and found Rosati's on TA. As it was nearby and being hungry, we headed here. No one there for lunch yet, so quickly seated and order taken. Lunch special is a slice and soda for $4.60. Hubby got a slice of sausage and I had the cheese. Really great pizza; great crust and sauce. It's a big piece, so come hungry!

Culver's

Reviewed By WINEandTRAVEL - Boston, Massachusetts

As someone posted below, most Culver's are about the same... would agree. Those that I've tried are fresh and good, not great. The burgers are very thin, so suggest a double. I think the ice cream is too thick.
