Polk-a-Dot Drive In

Polk-a-Dot Drive In

222 N. Front Street
Braidwood, IL 60408


One of the most memorable attractions along Route 66 is the Polk-a-Dot Drive In. Once you enter the Drive In you will instantly be sent back into the 1950s. Not only will you enjoy a great meal in a family atmosphere, you can peruse through memorabilia from 50s and Route 66. Every table is equipped with its own table side jukebox, just like the sock hop days. It is acceptable to take pictures while dining at the Polk-a-Dot Drive In as there are many Instagram worthy photo opportunities.
