Trop Club, located at 6282 E Riverside Blvd, Loves Park, IL 61111, is serving up handcrafted burgers and cocktails in a fun, upscale pub atmosphere. We stopped by to try a little bit of everything on the menu.

We started with a Guava Island Tea cocktail: bourbon, guava, and lime juice come together in a delicious combination. The guava puree makes this feel like a beach resort cocktail, and is just in time for your summer vibe.  

For an appetizer, we dove fork first into the Poutine: fries, cheese curds, and gravy. This shareable dish is hot and flavorful. This is a great table dish that brings everyone together to fight for the last fry.

Next up, the breaded shrimp. These large shrimp are served piping hot and with your choice of dipping sauce. Classic cocktail sauce is always on the list, but you can also try 7 other sauces like the Trop Fire, a spicy and creamy dip to fire up your shrimp. Prepared perfectly, Trop Club is known for its shrimp and other seafood options!

We couldn't leave without trying a hand-crafted burger. The French Onion burger features french onion sauce, swiss cheese, deep fried onions, and pickles on a pretzel bun. Prepared to your preferred temperature, these thick burgers are loaded with toppings to make sure you don't leave hungry. Served split, you can dive right in to this massive burger. With 15 gourmet burgers on the menu, you are guaranteed to find your favorite flavor while enjoying your favorite game on their large tv's.

Trop Club has their kitchen open until midnight on Friday and Saturday for your late night dinner needs. Stop in for hand-crafted classics and an awesome cocktail. See you there, Rockford!
