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!

It has come to our attention that there are a couple positive cases of Covid to our employees. They seem unrelated and they had not worked 48 hours prior.
According to Health Department guidelines we are not required to close. But to be on the side of caution, we have decided to close for one week due to the high number of cases in the community as well.
See you next week on 11/18 AND STAY SAFE!
