After the Run: Local Favorites

Gabatoni's Restaurant Best thin crust pizza in Springfield. The meatlovers is delicious but becomes very greasy!
Mel-O-Cream white chocolate long john... mmmmm
Mekong Cafe Great noodles!
1308 S 2nd St, Springfield IL — (217) 391-2511
Dynasty Asian Cuisine Typical Chinese, appears dark and dirty. Food is not bad.
Sunrise Cafe One of the cheapest sit down diners in town. Decent food, daily specials and breakfast served all day and yes they do accept credit cards here.

Happy Sushi Dont judge it before you try it. The outside of the buikding does not own up. I have never tasted better food! You cannot go wrong! Dont miss this place!

925 S 7th St, Springfield IL — (217) 528-8548
Taqueria Moroleon The best Mexican food in Springfield, no question. The food is flavorful and well-cooked. The salsas are unique and cover a wide range of consistencies and spiciness. All around excellent.
The Old Lux Get the filet. I usually prefer a ribeye, but the ones here I find to be grisly. The filet is perfectly cooked. Can't beat the price. Elsewhere the same product goes for $40, here it's $16.
The Chili Parlor Good stuff. Cash only.
820 S 9th St, Springfield IL — (217) 523-4989
Head West Sub Stop The #8 is my favorite and the sub is huge. Get a regular and take the rest home for another meal!
Cafe Moxo The pot pie is delicious! Close to the Amtrak station
Burger Bar Great burgers! Cute, friendly bar. Great place to chill :)
2765 S 6th St, Springfield IL — (217) 528-9030
