Elvis lives at Polk-a-Dot on Route 66! Nice people, pretty good diner food with every possible picture of Elvis & Marilyn & more. Worth the short detour off Rte. 55.

Fun place to stop! My kids loved it - they made a few selections on the jukebox and sat in kid size tables - they were in heaven! Shakes were so good!

Food was Fine - but the atmosphere was perfect for a Rt. 66 day with the kids. They loved taking photos with life size and giant Elvis statues and if you love the king you must visit the pink ladies room!!! If you love Marilyn you must visit the Men's room
