Our Friday Wine Down is coming to a temporary end after this Friday, November 19. We will be taking a break until a time yet to be determined in 2022. Thanks once again to our loyal customers who have come out to support us during the recent difficult times. We hope to have provided a good service in a friendly atmosphere for all of those who just want to get out and enjoy life.
This weeks menu includes three very different meal selections that we hope will take some of the boredom out of a Friday Night dinner. Do not fear however, as we will return to ribs and steaks as part of the menu when we resume service in 2022.
Option one is a robust Reuben sandwich made with house smoked corned beef, zesty pickled kraut (not the sour kind), baby Swiss cheese, thousand island dressing on marbled rye bread from Fazio’s Bakery in Decatur. Option two is thick cut boneless pork chops. They are marinated and grilled to a tender treat that our customers have enjoyed several times this summer. The third option is juicy and savory smoked meatloaf. Smoked to perfect doneness and then sliced and seared on the flattop, served with a sweet and tangy glaze.
All the meals are served with a dinner roll, dinner salad, and our 6-cheese smoked mac and cheese. Dinner is served 5-8. Reservations are accepted but not required. 217-635-9900

This is the next to last week for our Friday Wine Down dinners. We are still trying to offer some of our usual menu with a different special each week. This week we continue with our smoked ribs and bring back rib eye steaks one more week. Each of these dinners will be served with a dinner roll and dinner salad plus our smoked baked potato casserole. The special this week is some good old comfort food. We are serving ham and beans made with bone-in ham that we prepared and smoked on site. It will be served by the bowl with cornbread and our house made apple slaw.
We hope to see you here to enjoy the days running up to the holidays. If you are looking for something to do on Sunday we still provide live music indoors. This week it is the music of Rich Loudin. We will have plenty of refreshments so come on out and relax with us.

As the weather cools down, we are making changes accordingly to our menu for Friday Night Wine Down (November 5). This week smoked rib dinners will be available. We have two specials this week. One is Southern Fried Shrimp, served with seasoned butter potatoes, and a cup of New England Clam Chowder a slice of French Bread and a dinner salad. The other is a comfort dish to combat the cold weather that has come to visit. It is a bowl of Loaded Potato Soup, made with real cream, two cheeses, onion, ham, bacon, sour cream. It is served with a slice of crusty bread and a dinner salad. It is a rich, creamy, and decadent version of an old time classic. Let us do the cooking while you wind down for a break from the weeks work.

This week, October 29, we are going to go a bit off the beaten path for our Friday Night Wine Down menu. We will still offer our smoked ribs but take a break from steaks and our usual menu. The beef item will be smoked brisket. The chain restaurants aren’t the only ones who can fancy up some brisket. Ours will be smoked to perfection and then cut into bits size portions and grilled on our flattop with extra seasonings and sauce. It is all topped with fresh Pico De Gallo, shredded Mexican cheese and some handmade Guacamole. We will offer this same dish made with diced chicken breast. Our other special for this week is Bacon wrapped Armadillo Eggs. This is a favorite BBQ item in the southwest. We hollow out Jalapeno peppers to remove all the hot seeds. Then stuff it with diced shrimp and cheese, wrap the whole thing in seasoned ground pork and wrap again with bacon slices. Then the whole thing is smoked for 3 hours. You will not be disappointed if you try one. All meals are served with a baked potato, dinner salad and dinner roll.
We thank you for your support and hope to continue providing good food and good wine at an affordable price in a friendly atmosphere.
Cheers!

Thank you to all of our customers who have made our Friday Night Wine Down dinners a success this season. We truly appreciate your support. In the past we stop service by mid-October and begin again in the spring when it warms up. We have made the decision to continue food service as long as it appears that our customers want to come visit us on Friday nights for a good meal and friendly atmosphere. The menu may change as the weather changes. (No one wants to stand over a grill when it is below freezing outside). So we will offer some alternatives that we hope are a nice break from the usual menu along with the regular items as weather permits. Keep checking with us to see what is on the menu.
For this week, October 22, the menu is still the standard grilled steaks, smoked ribs, and grilled shrimp skewers. The special this week will be marinated and grilled chicken breasts. All dinners are served with a dinner salad, baked potato, and dinner roll. We have lots of great wines, domestic and craft beers, slushies, and a selection of liquors. Come join the party. Serving is from 5 p.m. until 8 p.m. Call for reservations at 217-635-9900. Walk-ins are welcome.

We at Hill Prairie Winery want to report the success of our effort to raise money to support the Wreaths Across America program. This organization raises money to purchase wreaths to place at burial sites in honor of our fallen veterans. This past Sunday with the help of Donnie Fritz and Angelica Marie, enough money was raised through the sale of chili and donations to purchase wreaths to remember and honor 80 of our fallen heroes. Thank you to the Fritzes and those who purchased chili or made a donation. We hope to continue to improve and grow this event in honor of our veterans. We owe them and their families a debt that can only be repaid by living up to and standing up for the ideals for which they sacrificed their lives. They gave us the freedom to enjoy the days like we experienced on Sunday.

It seems like the warm weather does not want to leave just yet. So lets enjoy the extra time with summer like temps and keep the grill fired up. Come on out to Hill Prairie October 1 for our weekly Friday night Wine Down dinner and enjoy a juicy steak, smoked ribs or maybe some grilled shrimp skewers. These meals come with a dinner salad, roll and baked potato. This week’s special is a large loaded baked potato. One option is the classic bacon, cheese, and sour cream topped with a little green onion. Option number two is piled high with our own pulled pork bbq topped with diced onion, Monterey Jack cheese, corn chips and drizzled with our house bbq sauce. Both come with a house salad and a dinner roll.
We offer our sincere apologies to anyone who did not get what they would have preferred to order last week. As many of you know, the supply chain is a mess and sometimes we can’t get the things we need. We hope this was only a one time problem for us and we appreciate your patience.

Come on out to Hill Prairie Winery today and enjoy some fall weather and great music by Devin Clemons from 2 until 5. There will be plenty of beverages and our food special for the day will be seasoned beef or roasted chicken Tacos. All served with handmade Pico De Gallo, shredded cheeses, nestled in a warm flour tortilla. These tacos are not like the ones from the chain restaurants. They are a hearty portion size and made when you order.

Menu for September 24th. It is now officially fall on the calendar and we can feel it in the air. That means some very nice evenings sitting out under our pergola and taking in the view while enjoying a Friday night dinner and a glass of your favorite beverage. Indoor seating is available for those who prefer to dine indoors. We strive to offer quality food while keeping the cost as reasonable as we can. Right now, availability and price of some food items is unpredictable at best. We will continue to offer steaks and ribs at market price. We also will continue to find a weekly special that is satisfying at a lessor cost to our customers. This week our special is grilled bbq ham steak. We grill a Smithfield center cut ham steak coated with a special apple butter bbq sauce and serve it with a grilled pineapple wedge basted with butter and brown sugar, then top it off with our smoked cheesy potato casserole. It also comes with a dinner salad and role. We can serve this special for $15.95 per plate.
We hope to see you Friday for dinner. BTW, we have a new wine released a couple of weeks ago. It is a delicate and refreshing Rose’ that would pair well with your Ham steak if that is your choice of meals.
From all of us to all of you, cheers!Menu for September 24th.

Our Friday Wine Down menu for September 17th will be served from 5 p.m. until 8 p.m. This weeks special is a thick bone-in pork chop. It has been seasoned, then slowly grilled to tenderness. Unfortunately, the price of steak has gone up considerably again. So we are going to have to raise our price for the steak dinners. Carry-out will still be available for those who prefer to do so. We will have indoor or outdoor seating available. Reservations are not required but they are encouraged.

As time allows, we try to offer a different special each week. The menu for 9/10 is tacos served with a Mexican twist on potato salad. The meal includes 2 warm soft flour tortillas stuffed with meat of your choice then topped with fresh handmade Pico De Gallo and shredded cheese. Your options include seasoned Beef and grilled Chicken, or you can have one of each. These are a good size portion and better quality than you will get at the chain restaurants. Throw in the potato salad and it is a filling meal. The price for the meal is $12.95. To top off your Taco dinner we will be offering frozen margaritas as well.
Like always we still offer our grilled steaks, smoked ribs and shrimp skewers.

It is rapidly nearing time for our annual Rib Festival. Inviting competition cooks makes it a fun event. Ours is a Back Yard competition meant more for fun and the enjoyment of showing off your BBQ skills than chasing prize money. We do offer prize money but it is not the main focus of what we are doing. Any back yard pit masters that want to participate should contact Hill Prairie Winery by phone at 217-635-9900 or send us an email to [email protected] . We will give you the details and entry information. Captain Geech & The Shrimp Shack Shooters will be on hand to entertain while you cook. Looking forward to another great time.
