APRIL 7, 2017: The former Filling Station restaurant on Route 66 in Lexington, Illinois, will be reopening in July as Kelly's On 66. It closed in 2011 and is at 905 1/2 West Main Street, right across from the famous neon sign directing Route 66 motorists to downtown Lexington.
We ate there once before when it was The Filling Station and often remarked as we drove by that we wished it would reopen. We were in Lexington this past Sunday during the Illinois Route 66 Red Carpet Corridor Festival and it has the new name up, but not open.
Looking Forward to its Reopening. --RoadDog
