Dining with Character Along the Illinois River

Dining with Character Along the Illinois River

This little joint just says it all. This neat little BBQ and pulled pork joint is located along the Illinois river near Sparland. It doesnt get any better than this. The portable grill and smoker is right out front and the neon "Tamales" sign invites passers by to stop by and grab a bite to eat. You wont find places like this in the big towns or cities, but here along the Illinois river little road side cafes like "Millie's Tamales" are alive and seem to be doing well.
