Live, from East Peoria, it’s Saturday Afternoon starring this week’s host, Lou’s Drive-In from East Peoria featuring some guest stars who I didn’t get their names, but what are you going to do? Anyhoo, please welcome this week’s host, all the way from East Peoria, Lou’s Drive-In!
Okay, it’s January and it’s 55 degrees out. What are you going to do?
We’re going to put on sunglasses, pretend that it’s June and drive to...
Lou’s Drive-In in East Peoria! They’re open Wednesday through Sunday, 11am to 5pm serving up summer treats even in the winter time. Yahoo!
Check it out, I’m not the only one who had the idea to eat outside on this warm day in January! Okay, time to check out the menu and figure out what sort of a summer meal we should have in January of 2019.
I placed my order with this pretty Lou’s girl behind the window. Now while we’re waiting for our meal to be delivered, let’s take a little look around here.
Luckily that snowman is made out of plastic or he’d be a melted mess on this warm day in January!
There’s no curb service till the summertime, but it’s still something to see a convertible with the top down in January!
Most of the customers are using the drive-through today.
But not me, I’m taking advantage of this warm January day and I’m sitting at this table. I started off the dinner with a glass of Lou’s famous Root Beer.
Now it’s time to feast on a summer meal in January!
I got onion rings, a corn dog and a chili-cheese dog. It was a delicious summer treat on a warm and blustery winter’s day. And for the record, I love being able to write the word “blustery” in January!
This was quite a summer treat for the first week of January!
I got a chili-cheese dog, onion rings, a corn dog and I washed it all down with Lou’s home-brewed root beer. It was every bit as good as it looks!
Four Galloping Gourmets—This was a nice break from winter and a reminder that Lou’s on Knoxville will be open in about three months. Spring will have sprung before you know it!
