Cheese curds are one of the best things and a true midwestern delicacy.

They are so popular in Rockford, cheese curds are available at seemingly every restaurant.

The best part of cheese curds is that they are nearly impossible to screw up. I mean, it's deep-fried cheese.

However, there are some Rockford restaurants where the cheese curds are better than others.
