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.

We will be closed Monday 6/15 through Thursday 6/18. Our kids are coming home and we need to spend some quality time with them. It's something that we don't get to do that often. We will be back open for business on Friday 6/19. We thank you for your support during the whole Covid process. It's been a rough ride for everybody. You've been great to us! And as always, we appreciate your continued support!!! ... See MoreSee Less
