I lived here in monroe for over 20 years. I usually dont eat out a lot because I am very carful of what I eat and try to keep healthy. I have family that lives in chicago who i visit consistantly. They always try to take me out to the "big" chicago restaurants but the food is alright but the quality is not like vinces. My son took me out to vinces for mothers day and it was WONDERFUL! the service was great, they had roses for all the mothers, the owner even came out to say high and talked with me for a bit, and the place was packed. Monroe really upgraded and changed the name of small town restaurants. it's something you would expect from a large city.
