( – Fairbury, Illinois

How I heard of this place: When we arrived in Fairbury, my sister- and brother-in-law suggested this pub-like space as the perfect location for a relaxed and carb-rich dinner.

Type of cuisine: Pub fare at its best: burgers, sandwiches – including the Pork Tenderloin, fried everything and a wrap or two for the health conscious.

Ambiance: We pulled up to the golf course, watching the sun setting over the horizon, creating orange and pink tones to paint the sky. The dark brick and wood unmarked building held only a couple of neon signs and a dilapidated wooden bench outside (on what presumably provides outdoor seating in warmer climes) to indicate that the establishment was open for business. Inside, the dim lighting accented the brick walls and pillars in the bar, that created the ambiance for the entire, low-ceilinged room.


What I ordered: To start, we opted to enjoy the Combo Platter ($9.95) with our choice of any three appetizers. We chose the Club Fries ($4.50) – French fries piled high with Monterey Jack cheese sauce and bacon, Cheese Balls ($5.25) – battered cheddar cheese cubes served with ranch dressing, and Mini Corn Dogs ($5.25).

For our main entrees, we had one order for the Chicken Philly ($7) – grilled chicken topped with sauteed onions, green peppers and melted Swiss cheese,

the Mushroom Swiss Burger ($5.75) – a hand-pattied burger topped with sauteed mushrooms and Swiss cheese,

and my husband and I each selected the Chedda Jack Burger ($6) – a hand-pattied burger topped with BBQ sauce, cheddar jack cheese and bacon.

What I loved: Mini Corn Dogs. Fries. Yum.

Why I loved it: Indian Creek is easily one of the friendliest, most small-town friendly settings in which I have found myself. Everyone waved and greeted each other upon entering and exiting, making conversation with familiar faces to make new friends. The food was plentiful and inexpensive and the service friendly.

Cost: Low ($5 – $7 per main entree sandwich or burger)
