Last Thursday I joined a group of about ten parishioners in a journey to Moonshine, IL. Population: 2.
The town got its name when a man, looking down at a puddle, saw the reflection of the moon.
The trip was quite an experience. The joint is parked in the middle of no where but serves hundreds of burgers a day before 12:30, when the close each day.
Here’s a brief bit of info:
Roy Lee and Helen Tuttle bought the old-time (circa 1912) country store in 1982 and promptly made it the best eating house in town – heck, it’s the only building in town, unless you count the outhouse – and you had better count it.. Aside from cold cut deli-style sandwiches, drinks and snacks, Moonshine is the home of the world-famous Moonburger. You can get a double beef cheese Moonburger, you can get a bacon Moonburger, shoot, you can get a Moonburger just about any old way y’all want it.
It’s worth a trip! Here are some photos. More may come later.
