STEPHENSON COUNTY (WREX) — Stephenson County residents are being encouraged to eat out during Stephenson County restaurant week.
The first ever Stephenson County Restaurant Week kicked off Friday, April 23 and goes through May 1.
Freeport and Stephenson County are home to more than 95 restaurants, cafés, bars, lounges, and delis, each with a unique flavor or environment.
“Stephenson County is filled with great restaurants with a wide variety of dishes and delights. We are happy to highlight the many options that are available locally and hope that residents and visitors will make extra effort to support restaurants during this special time and throughout the season,” said Bill Clow, business engagement director of the Greater Freeport Partnership.
Restaurants have selected menu items that highlight their best options and fit the tone of their establishment.
Dine-in, delivery and carry-out options are available at various locations.
“Make it your goal during Restaurant Week to try at least three new places you haven’t had before. We all get in the habit of ordering from the same places and miss so much. Restaurant Week is the extra invitation to exit your comfort zone and support local dining,” said Brand Director Nicole Haas.
