News From Along Route 66-- March: Some More Illinois

MARCH 12TH--  RIVIERA ROADHOUSE  in Gardner, Illinois.  This place burned down in 2010 and the well was improperly capped.  There is a person now who would like to see a hand pump installed there, but it would cost around $3,000.  And, it should have some sort of marker at the site.

Bob and Peggy Kraft operated it until 2008.

It broke my heart when I heard of the fire.  We still have never gone by the site since then, but are sure are glad we got to go to it and meet the Krafts.  Fantastic food and Bob liked to hold court in that basement bar.

A real loss for the road.
