DeKalb Chamber’s ‘Taste of the Town’ starts Tuesday

Explore local restaurants, bars and other related businesses through DeKalb Chamber’s ‘Taste of the Town’

Imagine sitting down at a local eatery. Tasty smells waft from the kitchen. You hear the sizzle of the grill and bustling room. You see a very yummy looking plate at the next table over. You search the menu for the item and find it. While looking, you see they offer your favorite dessert and decide today you’ll treat yourself to it.

The waiter walks up with a smile and sits down an ice-cold hand-crafted drink, just the way you like it. You take a sip, and a zing goes through your body as your taste buds wake up.

You order your meal and, moments later, you take a photo of your chef-prepared plate. Then, you dig in to find it satisfies all your cravings – fresh, juicy and perfectly balanced – paired with a side that is to die for. You leave full and can’t stop talking about your newfound favorite!

Hungry? Follow the DeKalb Chamber as we explore restaurants, bars and other food/drink-related businesses here in our community through our new Taste of the Town. Taste of the Town is a visual campaign that starts Tuesday on the DeKalb Chamber’s Facebook and Instagram accounts.
