The Launching Pad Drive-In

810 E. Baltimore Street Wilmington, IL 60481

The Launching Pad Restaurant on Route 66 is most known for the 30-foot tall spaceman, The Gemini Giant, that stands outside of it. The Launching Pad just finished being remodeled after being closed for several years and is in service to serve you a great Route 66 inspired menu. Make sure to say hello to Holly or Tully!
