New Place to Eat on Route 66 in Lexington, Illinois: Kelly's on 66
Sunday, while Liz and I were driving back from our 66 on 66 Cruise, we happened to drive through Lexington. I had known that the old Filling Station Restaurant, which has been closed for many years, had been bought and was going to reopen at Kelly's on 66 Restaurant.
It had not yet opened when we were there during the Route 66 Red Carpet Corridor Festival in May, but was open now.
We stopped and found out they had just opened on Tuesday, Oct. 17. Of course, there is a strong Route 66 motif inside and some really great food, with all sandwiches being served on homemade sweet bread. Reasonable prices and extra friendly and fast wait staff.
Something to check out the next time you're in the area.
