This establishment has been gone for about a year now. Food was good and so was the service. This is now the location of Trackside Restaurant.

Silver streak has been closed and out of business for a year or more. it was a fine small restaurant with a limited menu. It has been replaced by "Trackside". Still a small neighborhood restaurant with a small bar. It is a slightly upscale menu featuring good steak and other well prepared items in the "bar food" class

Menu is limited but what they do is very good. They have a small space but staff is very friendly and quick. Catfish, Salmon and Steaks are top shelf.

Ate there just before the former owner sold the property. Have been advised by those in the know that we should expect above average eats when the remodeled facility re-opens. Yes, the locals are patiently waiting.

While visiting Mt. Vernon IL in January my family went to diner at Silver Streak. I believe we were the only out-of-towners there. The menu was diverse - steaks, sandwiches, and fish. We all had steaks - three different types - all were excellent! And they came with two sides - nice size dinner salad, huge baked potato, etc. There... More

I use to go there all the time and felt food was good. However, The food I have received recently was not good. The Italian beef was just roast beef (Fatty) with no seasoning, the homemade chips are usually good however tasted like cooked in old oil. Left an aftertaste in your mouth. Wont be going back.

My family went there for my Mom's birthday. We had a new waitress but she was very attentive and met our needs. She did return and ask how our appetizers, lunch, and drink were. I the only complaint was they don't take away the plates after we asked for boxes. (it has happened before.) Over all I would recommend the... More

We decided to go here because my husband had seen their website. It said they were a steakhouse, seafood, and Mexican place. I wanted a steak, he wanted Mexican. When we got there, we seated ourselves and waited for one of the two waitresses working. After 5 minutes, the waitress brought us two menus and with those, came two half... More
