Road Stories: Cuckoo Clock Restaurant, Joliet, Illinois
Hi there, when I was about 4 years old, I remember going to the Cuckoo Clock fast food restaurant located along US 30 (Cass St.) in Joliet, IL at the intersection of Collins St. I was wondering if you or any of your Lincoln Highway mates had any photos or information on that. I guess this existed in the 1960s to the early 1970s and was a popular hang-out for the Joliet Township high school kids. Hopefully, you can find someone who has photos of this and could add them to this site!
