I haven't eaten at a lot of places in Champaign. Seems like we always venture to the same places and their always chains. I'd like to find some places that are favorites of the locals.
The last place we ate was Smokin Bones....I believe that was the name. Granted its a chain but we truely enjoyed it. I had one of the best steaks I've had in a very long time. It had a portabello wine sauce over it. The baked beans and slaw were wonderful also. The service was amazing too. The manager even came to each table to check on us.
