There are plenty of great places in Rockford, and some that aren't so great, but this one might be the worst ever.

There's a place that was so bad, and historically awful bad, the Cooking Channel took notice and gave them a spot on a list.

The Cooking Channel highlighted the 10 Worst Restaurant Fails, and right next to Death Row Dinners in London (yes, a death row themed eatery) and Hulk Hogan's Pastamania in Bloomington, Minnesota is a long-forgotten Rockford eatery.

Do you remember American Delight & Taste of Africa (Plus Mexican Food)? Probably not, but for some odd reason a restaurant with one of the most insane names ever, is now known as one of the worst restaurant fails of all time too.

When you have to stare at a restaurant's name for a few minutes just to understand what is going on, it's never a good sign. This American and African (plus Mexican) eatery is, sadly, closed. Now you'll never to taste that plate of hot dog-and-peanut stew nachos.

Formerly located at 1201 Sandy Hollow Road in Rockford, it looks like American Delight & Taste of Africa (Plus Mexican Food) closed without much fanfare in 2012 according to the Rockford Register Star.

Did you eat at American Delight & Taste of Africa (Plus Mexican Food?) What did you order? A burrito? Grilled cheese? Plantains? Tell us!
