THE CHILI PARLOR, Springfield-- Only eaten there once. Chili was good, but I've had better.
WHIRLA-WHIP, Girard-- I believe we've been there once on an Illinois Route 66 Motor Tour, but didn't eat.
ARISTON CAFE, Litchfield-- A classic fancy eating experience at a reasonable cost. Try to eat in the original room. I like the loaner cheater glasses for us old folks who have trouble reading menus these days.
DECAMP JUNCTION, Staunton-- A place we've always wanted to visit, but it is always closed when we go by it. One of these days.
WEEZY'S ROUTE 66, Hamel-- Right up there with Cozy Dog and Ariston. Liked it when it was Earnie's and the place in between the two owners. A real Route 66 place.
I Could Have Thought of Some Other Illinois Route 66 Places to Eat. --RoadDog
