"Illinois is not just Chicago"
I have emailed about diners to visit in central Illinois. However, of the 31 places visited in Illinois, none are out of the Chicagoland area. Illinois is a big state and there are places outside of Chicago, though many do not know that. In fact, it takes approximately 7 hours and 30 minutes to travel the length of the state. Try visiting places outside of Chicago. Not all of us are from Chicago and would appreciate a little recognition.Thanks,Stacy Nagel
