Good cheap food at Double Take Bar in Williamsfield, Illinois

Had a great burger tonight at the Double Take in Williamsfield, Illinois! The Double Take does not look like much more than a small town redneck bar but it offers some really good, affordable, meals with ribs, burgers, and catfish on the menu. There are specials every day including taco’s, and steaks. There is not much of an offering of restaurant fare in this region, Eastern Knox County. Luckily the one place out here offers decent fare for a good price. The burger that I had was made fresh and was not any kind of prepackaged type of a hamburger patty that you might expect at a bar.

In the past I have had the ribs and catfish at the Double Take and both were excellent. The chef here really tries to serve a good meal and he succeeds! The one fault would be the fries and salads that come with the main items. The fries that came with the hamburger were alright but I would prefer fresh hand cut fries. This seems to be the one area many places skimp on but the fries are part of the meal and should be done right. The salads too are served with a packaged salad dressing that I did not like. Other than that I really think that this place should be commended for serving up a great cheap meal!

The Double Take, as I said, is really just a bar with seating for patrons who are there to eat. It is normally quiet though and is popular with locals. The typical meal will run about $8 to $10 per person without drinks. They offer most major brands of beer, some craft beer and some wine. Williamsfield is about 18 miles east of Galesburg on Illinois Highway 180, north of US Highway 150.
