According to the experts at the Food Network, the best soup in all of the Land of Lincoln is at a restaurant called Hugo's Frog Bar and Fish House. The soup is called the Bookbinder Soup, so what exactly makes this soup the best in Illinois? On the site, they say...

"In 1893 Charles Bookbinder created this iconic namesake soup in Philadelphia. It somehow made its way to Chicago, where it became an iconic inclusion at the Drake Hotel's now-closed Cape Cod Room and at Hugo's Frog Bar, where it's been a menu favorite since opening day. The soup is traditionally made with snapping turtle, but Hugo's puts its own twist on the dish by using fresh Lake Superior white fish. The tomato-based soup also has vegetables and a kick of Louisiana hot sauce."
