The Joliet Route 66 Diner, Illinois

The Joliet Route 66 Diner is a great retro diner featuring wall signs from the 50's and 60's, offering a traditional diner breakfast and lunch menu.

Located within walking distance of the Joliet Historical Museum and Route 66 Welcome Center, the diner boasts a wide range of dishes including Mexican, crab, Florentine or country Benedicts for breakfast, omelets with corned beef hash, chorizo, feta, spinach or more, burgers, sandwiches and salads galore and breaded pork tenderloin or veal cutlet.

"I am a former waitress from The Joliet Route 66 Diner located in Joliet, Illinois. The diner is an adorable throwback to mom and pop diners and located right in the heart of Downtown Joliet, just a few steps away from the original Route 66."

"Every year we (I still consider myself part of the diner family) get many different visitors from all over the world coming through the doors and each one is treated like family. We have free brochures and postcards advertising some of the local attractions as well as other places to stop and see while you continue on your journey."

"The food is very reasonably-priced, with large portions enough to fill you up until your next stop. I loved working here, the whole diner really just makes you feel like you've stepped back in time and the waitresses are some of the sweetest women I have ever met"

"I definitely recommend stopping in for breakfast or lunch if you've got the chance."

About Driving Route 66

What started as a record of my personal Route 66 experience has grown into an active community of Route 66 veterans and newcomers alike. This website relies entirely on the experiences of its users so please feel free to recommend your own personal favourites.

Every Route 66 road trip is unique, and this site is in no way intended to be a definitive guide to the old road. However, I sincerely hope it offers a starting point to anyone planning their own Route 66 vacation.
