“Food & Drink in Alto Pass, IL”

Malt shops are a thing of the past, gone are the days of 5 cent ice-cream floats and homemade hamburgers so inexpensive they’re practically giving them away. Well at least Illinois’ Root Beer Saloon is keeping that tradition alive… kind of, anyway. 

Home to over 175 sets of antlers, including deer, elk, moose, and countless more, the world’s very first Root Beer Saloon is full of so much weird goodness you could easily loose an entire afternoon just wandering around looking at everything. Taxidermy covers pretty much every corner of the building, 150 mounted birds, beasts, ducks, and geese... heck, they even have a polar bear. 

That’s only one of the reasons visitors have come from all over the world to visit the Root Beer Saloon. The biggest draw is, of course, the 14-foot-long bar, covered in python skin, an 18 pound mounted lobster, and draft root beer on tap… no you didn’t read that wrong.

Considering the Root Beer Saloon is one part bar, museum, shop, restaurant, and malt shop you’ll understand why people from all over the world make a point to plan a detour to grab some grub and spend an hour or so just poking around. -Roadtrippers
Root Beer served in frosted mugs (the home of Mr. Frosty) in a place that has an ambiance unlike any other.  The decor includes over 175 sets of antlers (elk, caribou, deer, moose), many taxidermy mounts of gamefish, over 150 mounted ducks, geese & birds, beasts large and small, a giant statue of King Tut, a wooden cigar store Indian, antique guns, snow shoes, decoys, fishing plugs, even a Michael Garman diorama a replica of a New York tenement from the 1930's and so much more it boggles the eye and mind.
