Welcome to the Igloo

The Igloo has grown to become an iconic location of the Illinois Valley area since it first opened on July 4th, 1937. Founded during the Great Depression by the original owners Louis "Louie" and Stephanie "Pat" Mazzorana, the Igloo continued to be family owned and operated into December of 2010. Carrying on the traditions and continuing to build the business for the future was then passed on to Rich and Chris Decker on December 16th, 2010.

Diner in Illinois!

The Food Network website selected The Igloo as the best diner in the state of Illinois!

Good morning. So i woke up with a small fever and light headedness. To be on the safe side The Igloo will be closed today while i try to get a rapid test scheduled. As of now Im feeling very good and i have no symptoms But to be on the safe side we will be closed today. I'm thinking it may be just the quick flu and hopefully see you soon. Well will let you know when and what we find out.
Thanks so much!
