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... read more

The italian beef was very dry with no flavor at all. The beef was fatty (what there was of it), Not very much meat at all on my sandwich. The roll was also very hard. The chicken salad had no flavor and was extremely dry. It stuck to your mouth, it was so dry. There was no grapes or nuts... 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

So I read the reviews here on tripadviser and decided to check it out. Quite the place. Imagine a place with old table cloths, cloth napkins, video machines, bar, package drive thru, and good food all in one place and that's this place. The chicken salad sandwich was on large toast and almost 2 inch thick. Great place, bad location.... More

If you are coming off the interstate and drive the 4 mile to the restaurant and using a GPS system the restaurant is on the right. In other reviews they stated it was nothing to look at, it isn't that bad. The outside has metal building siding and the inside, I have seen worse. The restaurant was clean and decorated... More

Driving home on a road trip east and ended up in Mt. Vernon on a Sunday afternoon. We try to avoid chain restaurants but it is always difficult to find a local restaurant open on Sunday. Found this one on trip advisor and thought we would give it a try. Not very attractive on the outside but went in anyway.... More

Silver Streak could use some refreshing inside--it's wood paneling, dark, and a little stuffy. The food, especially the chicken salad, was good. (White meat with pecans and celery.) The hand cut chips are wonderful. Staff was friendly and attentive. They seemed to know everyone in the place (except us, it was our first visit to Mount Vernon and we were... More

My wife and I stopped by Silver Streak because of trip advisor reviews and we were pleased with the meal. It is hard to find, poorly marked, no curb appeal and the interior is nothing to get excited about. The food however was outstanding. I had catfish and my wife had Tilapia and both meals would have been excellent in... More
