If dining out were a sport, I'd be a Hall of Famer.

Not bragging, it's just something I like to do. When I travel, one of the first things I do is check either TripAdvisor or Yelp to see which restaurants I should hit up.

Traveling to the east coast, west coast, or out of the country, I always have a plan and for the most part, it includes dining at some well-regarded restaurant.

So since I'll be staying in town this weekend, what if I was to look for places to eat a nice August brunch with the fam? Well, you don't have to look too far to see the 10 Best Spots for Brunch in Rockford.

Just about every one of these places is good even outside of brunch so realistically you can't go wrong whenever you visit them.

To try and keep things nice and even, I decided to use Yelp to help sort out the 10 best brunch options for you this weekend in Rockford.

Eggsclusive Cafe, 7105 CherryVale Boulevard in Rockford.
