Here's a tip: if you are ever in the Bethalto/Alton area, go to Castelli's Restaurant. It used to be called Moonlight and for many years it had a fabulous reputation. Then someone decided it would be OK to use generic ingredients, and that almost killed the restaurant. But a few years ago management changed hands again, and the old recipes are back! This is where you get some of the best fried chicken anywhere.The chicken dinner comes with 2 sides; always get the salad with house dressing as one side, then upgrade the second side to an order of fettuccine.
Just trust us. Do it.
