America's favorite Mexican restaurant is Taco Bell, so the embarrassment is now over for Rockford.

In 2006, the people of Rockford did something they haven't been able to live down ever since. Taco Bell was voted the city's favorite Mexican restaurant.

Don't get me wrong. I enjoy Taco Bell, but there are quite a few locally owned places that I thought would get the votes.

Personally, I never thought the forest city would be able to shake that decision. Every time I thought enough time had gone by, it would get brought up again.

In fact, people from all over the country have heard about it. Even Rockford IceHogs Goalie, Collin Delia, who is from California knew all about it. When he came to town, he checked out Taco Bell in Rockford himself to see what the hype was all about.

Here's the video from his visit...

I have some great news citizens of Rockford. Finally, we no longer have to be embarrassed.

"Taco Bell is America’s favorite “Mexican restaurant,” according to a new survey."

Did you see that? Taco Bell is America's Favorite Mexican restaurant.

America supports Rockford's claim. We are not alone. If you're going to make fun of us, now you have to make fun of the whole country.
