Tasty Tuesday: VLC Staff Picks Their Top 5 Restaurants in Lake County

Welcome to a new edition of tasty Tuesday. With Lake County Restaurant Rally rapidly approaching July 31-August 9, the VLC staff “rallied” together to list some of their top five eateries.

Restaurants are an integral part of our community, and with the effects of the public health crisis, Visit Lake County strives to assist these world-class cuisine makers.

From American restaurants to international eats, from pizza pies to a flank of steak, to nautical bites to spectacular desserts, the Lake County Restaurant Rally will feature cuisines fitting for anyone’s palate.

Foodies that dine during the 10-day fare fest have the opportunity to win a gift card to one of these participating eateries.

Without further adieu, here are your staff’s pick top five restaurants in Lake
