There’s No Other Ice Cream Place In Illinois As Retro As The Twistee Treat Diner
Maybe you’ve seen it – after all, it’s hard to miss as you’re driving along historic Route 66. A large pink elephant beckons visitors to get off at the next exit as it advertises an antique mall, food, and (best of all!) ice cream. Curiosity and hunger set in and you must find out what this place is all about! Upon arrival, you are transported into another world, one from the past in all its vintage glory. Welcome to the Pink Elephant Antique Mall and its retro-style sidekick, the Twistee Treat Diner where you can satisfy your hunger with delicious diner fare and frozen treats.
