When I saw the Best 24/7 Restaurants in Every State, I wanted to see if a place from Rockford was on the list.

Well, a Rockford restaurant didn't make the list, Tempo Cafe in Chicago was Illinois' 24/7 restaurant representative.

So I figured I would check out Yelp to see if I could cobble a list together of the best 24/7 restaurants in Rockford.

That's where I found a list with a bunch of McDonald's locations, a Taco Bell, a Denny's, an IHOP, and a couple of Steak 'n Shakes. All fine places for a late-night meal, but I was looking for a Rockford original.

There was only one non-chain restaurant that was at the top of the list, Spring Garden Family Restaurant.

Spring Garden Family Restaurant, 4820 North Second Street and according to a Facebook review offers "good service and good prices with a large selection on the menu."

It's great to hear that Spring Garden has positive reviews, I'm certain I can't be the only one who finds it strange that there's only one non-chain 24/7 restaurant in Rockford.

Unless I'm missing something. Are there more non-chain 24/7 restaurants in Rockford that I'm unaware of? Let me know!
