About Polk-a-Dot

The Polk-a-Dot Drive In was founded over 40 years ago. The Drive-In was originally a school bus

painted in Rainbow Polk-a-Dots. Lunch was served from a mini-sized kitchen inside the bus.

Today, it is a beautiful 50’s Style Drive-In that has become one of the most memorable attractions along Illinois Route 66. Download our menu in PDF format.

Every year on the first Saturday of August, we sponsor a Cruise Nite. You will see some of the finest cruisers in the Midwest show up for this event. Be sure to mark your calendar. Go to the “Cruise Nite” section and see some pictures from our last Cruise Nite. This is an event you won’t want to miss.
