    yeah I loved that article. I lived in Peoria from birth to 23, but I've never been to Larry's Driftwood or the Red Barn. Davis Bros is good though I don't think it was mentioned. My go to's:

    Tyroni's in Bartonville
    Butch's frozen pizza (namely the white sausage/garlic)
    Pizza Works

    When we are in town visiting family, I almost always pick up about 8-10 Butch's pizzas to take back home for the freezer. I was sad when Aggie's stopped making the frozen pizzas.

    New spot - Raber Packing


    Kind of similar to Peoria Meatpacking in Chicago. Pretty much any part of the pig you want. Plenty of beef, etc. I went with some beef snack sticks - I try to get them at every butcher I go to - as well as some of their housemade bologna - I am on a fried bologna sandwich kick since getting back from Nashville. - Snack sticks passed the test, bologna might be better than my favorite Daisy Brand -

    Raber Packing
    1413 N. Raber Rd.
    West Peoria, IL.

    Reason I went so light on purchases at Raber Packing is I was heading next to Pottstown Meats - One of my favorite meat spots - specifically because they have beautiful Kilgus Farms pork and beef for a fair price(the anti-hipster butcher if you will). Went with my favorite steak around - the aged bone in sirloin -

    brilliant that:


    also some beautiful Kilgus bb ribs -


    la bomba:


    In case people weren't aware, Raber burned down in Nov 2018. They are going to rebuild though.
