The First Hundred Miles of Route 66 is home to a number of throw-back eateries and supper clubs. One of our favorites is Syl’s Chophouse (829 Moen Avenue, Rockdale, Illinois 815-725-1977).
Founded in 1946, this family run business ‘has grown into a full-service steakhouse,’ and pride themselves on the consistent quality of their food. Locals who patronize Syl’s consider it a hidden gem and love the ‘great food’ and ‘staff (are) very personable.’
Located just one mile west of the OLD US RT 66 (IL RT 53), Syl’s has been serving hungry travelers along the Mother Road for decades. Visit them online at Syls.com for reservations, a complete menu and daily specials. Full bar featuring top-shelf liquors, fine wines, steaks, chops, seafood and pasta.
Family friendly and Sunday Brunch Buffet (regulations permitting). Winner of the Herald News 2020 ‘Best of Will County Best Fine Dining’ Award. Closed Mondays.
