ABOUT

OUR PLACE

We just love ice cream!

Zammuto’s Drive In has been an integral part of the Winnebago County, Rockford, Illinois community for nearly a century. Established in 1925, we have been proudly serving our loyal customers in the same location at 725 Kent St. for all these years. Since taking ownership in 2007, I have been honored to continue this tradition of providing high-quality food and a memorable dining experience.

For many people, Zammuto’s Drive In is more than just a restaurant; it's a cherished part of their community and an anchor to their hometown. We take pride in providing an experience that creates a sense of nostalgia and familiarity, where individuals are excited to share their memories with friends and coworkers. Our food has become a tradition that families want to pass down to future generations.

Despite the many changes that have occurred in our neighborhood, our commitment to quality has never wavered. Our famous Granita, a delicious cross between Italian Ice and Sorbet, has maintained its great flavor year after year, batch after batch. We've also added new favorites, such as our hand-battered chicken wings, farm-raised catfish, and seasoned fries, which have quickly become fan favorites.

OUR LITTLE FACTORY

It's what's on the inside that counts

As the owner of Zammuto's Drive In, knowing that I have played a role in preserving this beloved restaurant for 98 years gives me a great sense of pride. Although the surrounding area may have experienced economic hardship, we remain a family destination for residents in Northern Illinois and Southern Wisconsin.

We invite you to come and experience the rich history and delicious food that has made Zammuto’s Drive In a beloved institution in our community for almost a century.
