     No "scenic spots" like mountains or beach.

    This restaurant, tucked into the Lincoln Square, is a neat little Italian-fusion place called Milo's. The food rotates on a seasonal basis, and is filled with some unique dishes. They have an upside-down pizza, which should be experienced rather than explained, along with various steak, fish, and chicken dishes. And the creme brulee is amazing. It is an intimate setting with good service, a good experience all the way around.

    Favorite Dish: I really enjoyed the salad... it was comprised of cranberries, walnuts, chopped romaine lettuce, blue cheese, and a raspberry vinegrette. It was a good blend, and a completely delicious salad.

    It's Pop's for Pizza or no place at all! Pappa Dels in campus town is still the best, after twenty years. You can dine in--be prepared to wait--or order out--again a wait. Courier Cafe is downtown Urbana, and has a great salad bar and menu and cozy interior.

    Favorite Dish: Pizza from Pops, salad from Courier

    This hidden spot has a lot of charm to it, a combination old-time tavern and diner which is funky and cool at the same time. It dates back from 1936 when it first opened right after prohibition and was a huge kick with the students of UIUC. It has an outdoor area, and is open seven days a week with a variety of drink deals. A good place to relax.

    Dress Code: none to speak of.
