Photo 29-BDU-5


This looks like the Warrenville Bowl, which was located at the SW corner of Illinois 59 and Batavia Road. It was still there in 1985 when I moved to the area, but was demolished sometime shortly after that. Now on that property is a Shell gas station, a McDonald's and a strip mall.

I agree, looks like the Warrenville Bowl and the Bowl Burger right next to it. My friend Paul Trautt and
I frequented it a lot during our WCHS school days 1962-1966, cruising it in his Buick convertible.

Yes it is the Warrenville Bowl. So the drive in was known as the Bowl Burger?! Mom and I would stop there and eat. I'd like to know when the Bowl was built.
