Excellent food not hard to find in Tri-Cities

What was leftover in the notebook after last week’s Rolling Down the River business expo at Pheasant Run for area chambers of commerce? Enough to maybe get your mouth watering a little.

First, this had nothing to do with a booth or vendor at the expo, but I was told that the recently-closed Main Street Tastee Freeze location (formerly Pop’s Place) on the east side of St. Charles will reopen as another fast-food location, possibly a Scooby’s Hot Dogs.

But, back to the expo. I’ve seen the ads in the Daily Herald for the fish and chips at Claddagh Irish Pub in Geneva, but haven’t had a chance to enjoy them. So, it was nice to eat some samples at the Claddagh booth. That dish is now on my “to-do list” — to get over there for the Monday two-for-one special.

New pizza joint: General manager Nicholas Utech, a Batavia resident, was handing out samples of his HotFast Pizza, which opened recently on Prairie Street in St. Charles. HotFast Pizza is located near Randall Road in the unit that was a Baskin-Robbins ice cream shop years ago.

“We want to offer a large, one-topping pizza at $5, so people have an affordable option,” Utech said of.
