Taking a trip to central Illinois? The capital city hosts D’Arcy’s Pint, an area favorite. Horseshoes/ ponyshoes, a local creation, is a specialty of the house, along with traditional Irish and American fare. Salads, burgers, pizza and more await you at this midwestern destination. Arrive early for a good seat, great service and friendly people. If you dawdle, you’ll have to wait in line, but as we all know, that’s the mark of a great local eatery.
