Historic Route 66
Polk-a-Dot Drive In (IL)
More than 40 years ago, the Polk-a-Dot was serving lunch from a mini kitchen in an old school bus decorated with polk-a-dots, of course. Today, the nostalgic diner-style restaurant greets locals and Route 66 visitors from around the world who come to enjoy great food and lots of fun. No stop is complete without a photo op with life-sized replicas of Marilyn Monroe, James Dean, and Elvis.
