This Epic Route 66 Illinois Drive In Will Bring You Back In Time

Little restaurants across Route 66 used to be very popular. These would be places that hungry, weary drivers would pull off to get a bite to eat. As Route 66 became more obsolete, these restaurants dried up. But a few of them still remain. One great example of the past is Polk-A-Dot Drive In. Go here, and relive the past. It’s truly great!
