Though Illinois is home to Chicago, the third largest city in the United States, most of the state is rolling prairies and farmland. While it may not sound as flashy as big-city fine dining, a fresh-cooked country meal feels good in the belly and the soul. With farms spread across the state, Illinois has the perfect mixture of locally-grown ingredients, historic barns, and family recipes to form some creative — and delicious — rustic restaurants. For those who want a hearty plate of country favorites, this gorgeously restored barn restaurant in Mount Prospect, Illinois, is definitely worth checking out.
