Passing through on Route 66 and looking for someplace different to eat and this place was great. A had a turkey hot shot and the turkey was thick and delicious. Seeing other people's food and some had breakfast it all looked and smelled great. We highly recommend.

For many years the Chenoa Family Restaurant was located on the corner of Old Route 66 and Route 45. Then they tore it down and built a new building next door and used the old land for a parking lot. This has been THE place to stop for locals and tourists for: breakfast, lunch or brunch when you are in... More

Had a club sandwich and fries, absolutely delicious. I ordered the bacon on the side, swiss cheese instead of American, with the bread lightly toasted. The server wrote it all... More

They even offered a meal "on the house" for being stranded and staying at the horrible hotel down the road. If youv isit eat here and ask for the owner or his wife. They are wonderful!!!

While my husband and I were in Chenoa, Illinois, we ate several meals at this restaurant. The ambiance was appealing, the menu extensive, and service was great. There were so many items to choose from that it was hard to decide on what we wanted to eat. We were greeted with menus, drinks, and a smile. The servings were quite... More
