Route 66 Chef Muffler Man

This just showed up on the Roadside America app recently, so we decided to take a look on our trip through Springfield. This is such a new attraction that it isn't even finished yet. We were there on February 21st and the food truck court had its first official day of business on February 22nd. The Muffler Man is still on a trailer but the double decker bus is on display! SGF Mobile Truck Park is the business.
