Rich & Creamy

Joliet, Illinois

IllinoisDiningRoadside Attraction

Rich & Creamy in Joliet, Illinois is a small ice cream shop with big ties to Route 66. This little ice cream shop in Joliet, Illinois originally opened as Creamy Delight in the 1970s. The building itself was built in 1965 and served as an office before it became a place to get soft serve.

The design is typical of those popular in Route 66’s heyday and the building was restored to match its retro past. The white shack with turquoise accents features Blues Brothers statues of Jake and Elwood on the roof that pay homage to the characters’ ties to the adjacent Joliet Prison, a big Route 66 shield that says “Joliet Kicks on 66,” and neon lights that adorn the building, lighting them at night.

The city has owned the property since 2001 and almost demolished it due to the need for extensive repairs and a new roof and its proximity to the road. They considered rebuilding a bit further from traffic but, in the end, kept the original structure.

Stop on your Route 66 road trip for an old-fashioned ice cream cone, sundae, or milkshake, and admire the Blues Brothers statues on the roof.
