Leo's Island BBQ

If you're looking for a taste of the Hawaiian Islands, you could do worse than what you'll find at Leo's Island BBQ in Peoria. This small, bright eatery offers nearly 30 different types of plate lunch, a favorite island-style meal that always comes with two scoops of rice and a side of macaroni salad. You can get your plate lunch loaded with smoky kalua pork, tangy teriyaki beef, or Spam. If you're going for a really authentic experience, try the loco moco, a popular meal with islanders that features a hamburger patty and fried egg smothered in gravy. And with nearly everything priced under $10, you're in for a filling and affordable meal.

Vogue Bistro brings Paris to Surprise.
Vogue Bistro

No, you're not reading this wrong. As it happens, Surprise is home to not one, but two of the city's best French restaurants. At Vogue Bistro French expat Aurore de Beauduy serves an approachable menu of French and French-inspiried fare. There are dishes like the escargot, foie gras, and duck confit, but also more American-style eats including meatloaf, burgers, and even lasagna. The restaurant also serves a lineup of "designer" martinis, each of which takes its name from a French fashion house.

Next time you update this list you should check out Angela's inside Sun City Grand. By far the best restaurant west of the I-17.
