As you travel around Champaign County, food is going to be on your mind, at some point anyway. While you most certainly can stop at any place that looks good, you’re about to find out what ‘is’ good. These four restaurants that Urbana IL has to offer are top notch. They have great reviews, and that means they come highly recommended.
Timpone’s is up first, and the location for this dining establishment is 710 South Goodwin Avenue. Order up all kinds of great Italian dishes at Timpone’s. Halibut is even on the menu, and the roasted vegetables served up there make the highlights as well. Do you happen to be catching a show at the Center for the Performing Arts? If you are, reviews point to the fact that this is a great restaurant pick, considering it is right nearby.
You’re going to enjoy some excellent barbecue at this next place. It’s called Hickory River Smokehouse, and the location is 1706 North Cunningham Avenue. I’m still not sure why smoked turkey is always on the menu it seems when it comes to barbecue restaurants up north. Smoked turkey is good, however, and so is brisket and all the other food served up at Hickory River Smokehouse.
Crane Alley on West Main Street is the next featured dining establishment. The downtown restaurant features an outdoor dining area on the patio. You can also play pool or billiards there. People say that Crane Alley is a wonderful spot to stop for burgers and fries. When it’s time to have a burger, you might want to stop there. One person mentions calamari and coffee though, so you might want to further explore the menu.
Maize Mexican Grill is next, and this featured restaurant is located on East Green Street. Gorditas, catfish and carne asada are three of the popular menu items at Maize Mexican Grill. Expect to see limited seating according to the reviews, but this restaurant is sure to delight if you’re in the mood for Mexican food.
