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.

January's Sandwich of the Month: Chorizo Dorito Burrito

February's Sandwich of the Month :

Chorizo Dorito Burrito

We start with ground chorizo sausage, add chopped lettuce, shredded cheddar/jack cheese, a helping of our taco dressing, and crushed Doritos for a nice crunch and roll it all together in a 12" tortilla.
It's awesome and unique taste is Muy Bueno!

We sure appreciate everyone's hard work and kindness.

And that it does love The igloo and all of your hard workers.

2 more weeks back to work can’t wait

It's a toss up which I like best - The Igloo or Verrucchi:s! Don't get to either often enough!

Great people, great business! 👏

My two favorite restaurants when i get to town! What are the odds?

That very nice 👍

Callie Meyer!
