Last month, Elsberry residents saw more demolition occur on the streets of Elsberry, as the half burnt building of Cadillac Bill’s was taken down.
The future looks bright though, as construction on a new building, being built by Heartland Restoration, will begin. Owner, Bill Rockwell hopes to have the business up and running in approximately four months.
When Cadillac Bills does re-open some things will be the same as when it closed. Such as the famous hamburgers, great ice cream and the monthly car cruise. In with the new building will be more seating, going from seating 27 customers to holding 60 customers.
Also new will be an expanded menu, a salad bar area and a speciality night, where one special item will be served.
Rockwell spent the almost four months off thinking about not only what he wanted in the new building, but what the people of Elsberry needed.
Rockwell is very excited to finally get the show on the road for the new building.
He originally opened the business on April 28, 2007 after he purchased it from Lee Hartley. Although the ownership and name has changed over the years the original building from 1973 had stood tall.
Rockwell added, “It has been a long winter, and I am looking forward to seeing everyone on a routine basis again.”
