All Star Restaurant Week returns to Alton, Collinsville area today

All-Star Restaurant Week 2022 begins today and runs through next Tuesday, July 19. Diners can enjoy delicious summer dishes served up by locally owned and operated area restaurants participating in this year’s All-Star Restaurant Week throughout Alton and Collinsville.

Participating restaurants are offering Restaurant Week specials for lunch and dinner. Diners can expect fixed-price meals with lunch set at $15 and dinners at $30, or in some cases, two can dine for $30. With great deals and great menus, All-Star Restaurant Week presents an opportunity for locals and visitors throughout the region to try a new restaurant or visit one of their favorites. Diners are asked to bring a large appetite and be prepared to enjoy great meals while visiting the featured restaurants, which need as much support as possible after being rocked with closures and reduced occupancy limits.

“Restaurant Week is a great way to celebrate all the amazing locally owned and operated restaurants in the Great Rivers & Routes region,” Cory Jobe, President & CEO of the Great Rivers & Routes Tourism Bureau said. “From Alton to Collinsville, we are able to highlight our delicious destinations to the visiting public and local residents eager to try something new.”

Mouthwatering specials include pastas, woodfired pizzas, tender ribeye sandwiches, traditional Irish fare and secret recipe fried chicken.

Participating restaurants in the Alton region include Alton Sports Tap, Airliner Bar & Grill, Bakers & Hale, Bluff City Grill, Brown Bag Bistro, Castelli’s at 255, Decaro’s, Great Rivers Tap & Grill, Johnson’s Corner, My Just Desserts, Morrison’s Irish Pub, Gentelin’s on Broadway, Old Bakery Beer Company, Santino’s Steak & Pasta House, Taqueria Maya and The Winery at Aeries Resort. Stepping up to the plate for the first time in Restaurant Week is Heaterz in Alton.
