A preform. Short bushwhack.
A true old slice of life on The Mother Road. Dell Rhea's Chicken Basket and Cocktail Lounge. When you visit be sure to stop inside and see the memorabilia!
Quote from their web site.
In the early 1960's, after Illinois Route 66 bypassed the Chicken Basket, it fell on hard times. People who remembered the restaurant couldn't figure out how to get to it and it almost went out of business for lack of customers. In 1963, Dell Rhea and his wife Grace bought the restaurant at a bargain price, Dell being very well known in the area used his reputation to help bring people back to the Chicken Basket.
Enjoy your visit!
Thanks to Liminal Man for the heads up!
Inducted into the Illinois Route 66 hall of Fame in June of 1992
