Tally Ho Restaurant. Route 64 east of County Farm Road, West Chicago, IL

From a Tally Ho matchbook:
"Route 64 North Ave 1-1/2 Miles West of Wheaton, Ill.)"
"Just 20 Miles West of Chicago"
"Eight Miles East of St Charles"
"On Hiway 64"

Was this on the North or South side of 64 and is the building still standing by chance? -Katie

My uncle Roy Vickers managed the Tally Ho for several years until his death. Would like to learn more about the property since his passing in 1972. - Renee

The Tally Ho is (was) at 27W103 North Ave in West Chicago. (I remember that because my address in the 70s was 27W704 Sycamore St in WC.) It's on the south side, a little east of County Farm road.
I worked there in the summers of 76, 77 (two brothers, last name Brooks, were the owners), and 81 (Tom Markos was the owner - during that recession - ack!) as a dishwasher & busboy. Another Google result says "Formerly known as Premiere Lounge". I think it has been pretty deserted and for sale for a long time.
