My Favorites Spots in Downtown Champaign

As I’m finishing up my undergrad career here at Illinois, I made it a point to visit as many restaurants as I could in Downtown Champaign. While campus is beautiful in itself, venturing out to downtown can allow you to discover hidden gems of the town.


For the best fried chicken you can get in Champaign!

Seven Saints

I’ve taken my parents here every time they’ve visited and also, it’s a great date spot for when you meet that special someone (speaking from experience, of course).


Tuesday nights are my favorite when all their delicious, gourmet pizzas are half off! 

Pour Bros

 If you want to unwind with some friends, hit up Pour Bros and try the variety of drinks they have to offer! 

Exploring the local spots in Champaign has been one of the best experiences of my life, and I hope you all can experience the same! Reply with your comments, suggestions, and thoughts on these restaurants, and others as well!



Class of 2020
I'm majoring in Psychology, minoring in Spanish, and pursuing a pre-dental track. It seems like I’m all over the place, but that’s what I like about college! I get to choose to study what I’m interested in, and I’m happy to be doing just that at Illinois.
