Mad family hangs happening in this place, going way back to before I was even born. Always cool to chill somewhere where 3 generations of your family have been.
Quite impressed with how my phone camera made the neon sign look. Neon is so retro and somehow it is also the future.
Cajun burgers erry'day.

Lou Mitchell's, also known as Lou Mitchell's Restaurant, is a #Chicago diner located at 565 W. Jackson Boulevard. It is a popular restaurant for commuters, as it is located near Union Station. It is also located near the start of U.S. #Route66 and was frequented by many people on the start of their journey along the road, earning it the nickname "the first stop on the Mother Road." In May 2002, the Nationwide Route 66 restoration program was launched at Lou Mitchell's. It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2006. Founded in 1923, #LouMitchells is known for handing out fresh donut holes to people waiting in line, boxes of Milk Duds to children, an orange slice and prune for breakfast, and a small cup of ice cream with each meal. Their egg dishes are made using double #yolk eggs, which they claim makes the eggs larger and fluffier.
Lou Mitchell's has been owned by Heleen Thanasouras. She appeared as the guest judge for the Quickfire Challenge of Episode 11 of #TopChef (season 4), which involved working at "the hull", or #egg station, at the restaurant for twenty minutes.
In November 2015, Heleen died at age 63.
