Located in downtown Benton, IL is a nostalgic 1950’s style drive-in diner called Mr. D’s. They offer hot dogs for just $1.14 and French fries for under a buck! The small town of Benton is a quiet rural farm town in southern Illinois off I57 about 25 miles south of I64. The theme is the nostalgic drive-in diner. The food is not of high quality but everything on the menu is inexpensive. The curb service was quick and friendly and although it is not my first choice to go for a great meal I would suggest a quick stop for just a hot dog and a milkshake. If you have kids this place would be a very inexpensive place for a meal. The kid’s meal has a drink and ice cream for under $4.
