Food Fridays: The Huddle DeKalb’s hidden gem


By Deanna Francis

There are many hidden gem restaurants in DeKalb, and if you aren’t actively looking for them, you might miss out. One of these local gems is The Huddle.

The Huddle, 817 W. Lincoln Highway, offers gourmet burgers, all-beef hot dogs, wraps, hand-cut French fries and other lunch favorites. The relaxed atmosphere and central location of the restaurant makes it the perfect place to grab lunch with friends or family on campus.

The Huddle offers online ordering for takeout or delivery on its website,, and it also offers catering for any meeting or event.

I recommend the Huskie Burger, a half-pound burger topped with veggies, spices, cheese, bacon and the special “Huskie Sauce” with the hand-cut French fries.
