RJ’s Place in Hartford

One of the most significant (yet perpetually underrated) aspects of travel is the opportunity to try local staples that aren’t back at home. There is so much you can learn from a city, region, or state by tasting its food. But which restaurant to choose? How is the visitor supposed to know which local staple is representative of the area at large? Which local flavor best embodies the spirit of the people? Well, in Hartford, Illinois, the choice is pretty easy.

RJ’s Place in Hartford is one of the most representative of the Hartford area, as well as the Midwest at large. At this local staple, you can acquaint yourself with some of the friendliest people either side of the Mississippi at the bar. Or you can take a seat with your family in one of the comfortable tables or booths. You won’t be waiting too long as the staff at RJ’s is remarkably quick- and exceptionally friendly to boot. The service and atmosphere are not the only areas where RJ’s excel. They also offer delicious nightly traditional American specials that reviewers rave about.

In town around Hartford? Definitely check out RJ’s for “food, family, & good times”.
