Back at Eating

Back to my roots and classic eating today. Green Gables is a true Central Illinois gem. I've been going to this local landmark since my college days at ISU.

My folks owned a share of cabin at Lake Bloomington in the late 80's and early 90's. Lake Bloomington is such a beautiful place, I would stay with them and commute to WEEK in East Peoria during the month the little green house on the lake was under Shangraw occupation.

These days, when camping with my kids at Lake Evergreen, we'll take a break from making meals on the fire and run over to Green Gables for a burger and fries.

It isn't cheap. But like they say, you get what you pay for. And Green Gables is worth each penny.
