Life is better with bacon. Bacon in your appetizer... entree... and dessert.

Vintage@501, 501 E. State Street, might be the most bacon-y restaurant in Rockford, let alone the entire 815.

From the million dollar bacon appetizer, which will make you feel amazing and doesn't cost a million bucks, to the bacon bread pudding, we dare you not to love the Vintage@501 menu.

And if for some crazy reason you don't love bacon, you can order the Phyllo dough covered (and gluten-free) cheese sticks, and one of their amazing and delicious martinis.

Might we suggest the pop rocks version, which will literally make noises in your mouth.

Plus there's the 50/50 burger, which is, in fact, fifty percent bacon.

It. Is. Good.
