Lou's Drive-In is closing down for the summer & some people are going for one last hot dog

PEORIA - It is unofficially the last weekend of summer and some people decided to spend it by heading down to Lou's Drive-In on Knoxville Avenue in Peoria.

Lou's Drive-In has been in Peoria for over 60 years and on Sunday, the stand turns off the grill and stops popping the popcorn to close up for the winter.

Lou's has always closed on the weekend before Labor Day, and Cindy Marcus says everyone comes down to get some food one last time before summer ends.

"It does stay very busy all weekend long because of the holiday and that's why we've always traditionally closed on the weekend, we don't stay open on Labor Day, but we either close on Saturday or Sunday, because everybody does like to make one last stop," says Marcus.

Lou's will open back up again next year in late April.
