Small Town Dining at it’s Best – take the Odell Blacktop east from Route 47 (about half way between Dwight and Saunemin) and you’ll come to the small town of Emington.
Here you will find one of the town’s historic components, re-opened, re-vitalized, renovated, and serving some of the best home made food in north central Illinois. In 2012, Mike and Pam Crouch brought the Roadrunner American Family Restaurant back to life and they have been building a loyal fan base ever since. Check their ratings on line and you will find that they are sustaining a 4.7 star rating in the restaurant 5 star rating system based on customer feed back.
They are a user friendly, cheerful, and clean operation that has a comfortable nostalgic atmosphere (check out their decor, wow) with a wide-ranging menu that provides a lunch or dinner that’s bound to please. Appetizers, salads and wraps, sandwiches, entrees that resonate with country, seafood, and Italian cuisine, and a salad, homemade soup, and dessert bar that tops it all off.
You can go the whole route, or pick and choose as you see fit – it’s all pretty much made from scratch, prepared and served by a happy bunch of hustling folks, and it comes to you hot or cold just as it should be for what it is. They also have a Kid’s Menu, Friday & Saturday Specials, and house specialties and favorites, and it all turns into a visit well worth making. Here’s some details to help you find your way:
