Smashburger isn't just the name?it's the way chefs, otherwise known as Burger Smashers, cook every burger. First, they form never-frozen, 100% Certified Angus Beef into a giant meatball. Then they season it, place it on a butter-glazed grill, and smash it into a patty. The process caramelizes the beef, locking in flavor while keeping the meat juicy and tender. Each slab is then sandwiched in an artisan bun and is turned into one of an array of standard burgers or locally inspired specialties unique to each market.

This handcrafting approach typifies everything else the restaurant does, from blending handspun shakes to hand painting Smashburger's logo onto every beverage cup. Letting its food stand for itself and relying mostly on word of mouth for advertising, the Smashburger franchise expanded from one restaurant in 2007 to 220 today, with its swift growth from zero to 100 stores making it one of the nation's fastest-growing restaurant companies. This rapid development even caught the attention of Forbes and Inc. along the way.

Today, Colonial Cafe & Ice Cream may have seven full-service family-friendly restaurants, but when it started in 1901, it was only a single small ice cream and dairy store. Now guests can settle into breakfast, lunch, and dinner at each of the eateries –and still enjoy the ice cream that put them on the map. They have garnered particular attention for their signature dish, the Kitchen Sink Sundae, which features two whole bananas, six scoops of ice cream (vanilla, chocolate, strawberry), whipped cream, chocolate, and chopped almonds with a cherry topper. It’s served in a large dish shaped like a kitchen sink with a S-pipe as the handle. And when diners finish it, they receive a bumper sticker that reads, “I Ate a Colonial Kitchen Sink.”

While ice cream reigns supreme, their breakfasts have also earned praise. They were voted “Best Breakfast” by the Elgin Courier News, Aurora Beacon News, and Naperville Sun. Favorites among the regulars include the stuffed very berry French toast and cinnamon roll French toast. Come dinnertime, they continue serving comfort foods including fresh baked meatloaf and a mac and cheese bacon melt, as well as sandwiches such as the pot roast French dip. The restaurant has also earned plaudits for its popularity with its littlest diners, grabbing the "Best Kid-Friendly Restaurant" designation in the Kane County Chronicle Reader's Choice awards.

Cuisine de Saigon's chefs remain true to Vietnam's culinary history, which itself draws inspiration from traditional French flavors and techniques. Pork- and shrimp-filled spring rolls, bowls of beef pho, and ginger-spiked rice all echo the restaurant's commitment to southeastern Asian cuisine, but the menu also incorporates western influences with its inclusion of silken crème brûlée and pan-fried Euros. More importantly, the chefs adhere to classical French guidelines when they plate entrees, creating artfully composed dishes with eye-catching patterns of diced herbs and drizzled sauces.

Lunchtime snacks and sandwiches include The Beast ($5.99+), a baked helping of steak and mozzarella cheese as tender and gooey as a love note from a jellyfish.

Cocktails and cake were always two of Tracey Glover's guiltiest pleasures. When she discovered that her friends felt the same way, Glover tinkered with the idea of combining the two. Fast-forward to the opening of Guilty Pleasurez Cocktail Cupcakes, the culmination of Glover's passion for sweets and spirits. Here, she custom bakes cocktail cupcakes: alcohol-infused treats that mimic the flavors of popular mixed drinks.

Depending on the order, Glover may bake chocolate and caramel cupcakes that taste of Baileys Irish Cream or whip up a batch of fuzzy navels that, like the pi?ata at a 21st birthday party, come filled with peach schnapps and orange Patr?n. She also makes alcohol-free versions of many flavors, and every batch is a custom job.
