You don't have to make the trek into the big city for a great meal, at least according to website Thrillist.com, which rated a local restaurant among its  "12 Best Illinois Restaurants NOT in Chicago."

"Believe it or not, there are restaurants outside of Chicago that're good, too," wrote Sean Cooley, who covers Chicago's restaurant and bar scene for Thrillist.

The roundup of the best eats outside the city included Geneva's Bien Trucha, 410 W. State St. 

"Show up to Bien Trucha a little early (no reservations) and enjoy one of their well-loved margaritas before sitting down to tacos like the Pescadillas (shredded swordfish, epazote, crispy tortilla, and avocado-habanero pico) or the Barriga de Puerco (slow roasted pork belly, adobo, salsa verde cruda, cucumber, queso fresco)," Thrillist Chicago wrote. 

This is not the first time Bien Trucha has gotten attention from a Chicago media source. The restaurant has earned  Chicago Magazine's vote for No. 1 taco in all of Chicagoland. 

Other picks included White Fence Farm in Romeoville, Basil's Greek Dining in Aurora, Zenwich in Elmhurst and Burt's Place in Morton Grove.  Click to see Thrillist's full list.
