On our way out of town when we were in Springfield a few weeks ago, we had to stop for an early dinner at the Cozy Dog Drive In, an old Route 66 attraction that claims to have invented what is generally referred to today as a corn dog.
The inside is exactly what you’d expect from a Route 66 diner, and I loved it!
The food was exactly what you’d expect, too…very delicious, and very reasonably priced. We all enjoyed the “Cozy Dogs”…just don’t call them corn dogs!
This was a fun and kitschy addition to our Illinois history unit, combining a historic location with an Illinois original food!
