This year, Daddio’s Diner is celebrating its 10th anniversary. For the past decade, Daddio’s has been the home away from home where regulars and new customers alike know they can grab a cup of joe and have their own slice of retro Americana. The diner’s quirky kitsch and strong history is what sets it apart from the others. The restaurant has also given back the community over the years, collecting food for local pantries and raising funds for various local organizations.

Right now, Daddio’s has promotions to thank their customers and community for supporting the family-run business for ten years. On top of that, Daddio’s would like to offer customers a free mini sundae with mention of this article in Neighbors Magazines. 630-879-5299,
