The community doesn’t have to give up a classic Peoria snack as the summer comes to an end.
Lou’s Drive-In on Knoxville in Peoria will close for the season Sept. 2. However, its new East Peoria location will remain open year-round, so anyone can still enjoy homemade root beer and their fan-favorite popcorn.
“They can still get it in East Peoria. Same food, same menu. Just a little but further drive, but closer for other people,” employee Vicki Couri said.
The East Peoria location is on Farmdale Road in the former Sonic.
