One of the oldest Route 66 restaurants, recently placed on the National Register of Historic Places, is located in Litchfield, Illinois. The Ariston Café is nearing 75 years of continuous service. The building reflects its 1930s period Art Deco style, seen in its sweeping curved roofline, neon lighting, and handsome wood-paneled booths. The interior is complete with antique lighting fixtures made by Springfield's Fitzpatrick Fixture Company and original tables are fully dressed, complete with cloth napkins.
