I sincerely appreciate the architecture of older buildings and DeLongs is set in a very neat old building on the picturesque downtown square in Pontiac, Illinois. If the food matched the setting I could give this restaurant an "Excellent" rating. My wife and I split a hamburger "Horseshoe" (basically a hamburger with fries on top and smothered in cheese sauce. The burger patty though cooked and seasoned well and flavorful was oddly small. It wasn't even the size of a quarter pound patty at the place with the yellow arches. (I just can't bring myself to write the name.) Twice the meat would have been about the right amount. The fries still had the potato skin on and had a nice crunch, that is until the copious amount of very orange cheese sauce (most likely from a can) had some time to soak in. We had ordered our Horseshoe with rye bread which was a good choice but would have benefited from being toasted. Sourdough bread a bit thicker sliced would have been perfect but that was not an option. A co-worker had recommended DeLongs and specifically the Horseshoe. I will be a bit more skeptical the next time he recommends something. The service was okay. We had to wait a bit for our ticket when we were finished but otherwise no complaints there. It was reasonably priced anyway.
