Where Everybody Knows Your Name
I recently had the to opportunity to check out The Hub in Champaign, IL. While this is not the set of a modern day Cheers, I can definitely say that this is a place where you would want everybody to know your name. The atmosphere is classy and laid back. Of course the main reason to check this place out is for their great menu.
Having visited family in the UK quite a few times I have experienced my fare share of Fish & Chips. So when I saw it was an option on their menu I knew I would have to check it out, and I must say it lived up to my expectations. Since then I have been able to try a few different items on the menu and have thoroughly enjoyed them all. But enough of the rambling, let the food speak for itself:
I am not particularly a salad person, but I must say that the Farmstead Salad is a great choice! Especially on those days when you want to grab something quick and healthy for lunch. Another personal favorite so far is the BBQ Chicken Flatbread. The sauce is just the tiniest bit spicy which gives this dish a nice kick!
The Hub also has a great list of cocktails to try out! So far my personal favorite is the Mango Blush Sangria. Here are a few I've tried:
All in all, The Hub is a great spot to come and spend time with friends. Equipped with multiple flat screens, everything put together is enough to make me start watching Sunday Night football. If you find yourself in the Champaign/Urbana area, be sure to check it out! And maybe if you are a regular, everyone will know your name.
