The Launching Pad, established in 1965, The Launching Pad is a top ten attraction on historic route 66. Home of the Gemini Giant, it began as the “Dari-Delite” in the 1950’s serving simple eats such as hot dogs and ice cream to travelers on historic route 66. In 1965, during the American race to the moon, the restaurant was renamed “The Launching Pad”. The iconic “Gemini Giant”, named by a local contest, was brought in and welcomes travelers from around the world to this day. Owners Tully Garrett and Holly Barker have “relaunched” this icon of Americana in Wilmington, IL. where they proudly serve the highest quality ice cream, true “Chicago-style” Vienna beef hots dogs, host car shows and so much more. Visit them online at and on Facebook. “It’s Outta This World”.
