Get your nostalgia fix by driving the historic Route 66, visiting Shea’s Route 66 Museum, catching a double feature at the Twin Drive In, eating a horseshoe or a cozy dog. Both the horseshoe and the cozy dog were created here in Springfield. The horseshoe, considered a signature dish of Springfield, IL, was developed by Chef Schweska and his wife, Elizabeth, when the Chef was looking for additional sandwich items to put on the Leland Hotel’s menu in the late 1920’s, an open-faced sandwich with meat, rarebit cheese sauce topped with potato wedges seemed to fit the bill. The cozy dog, a hot dog on a stick covered in crispy breading, is found nationwide in many county and state fairs but was officially launched at Lake Springfield Beach House on June 16, 1946 and introduced at the Illinois State Fair the same year.
