There have been Krekel's in Decatur for as long as I can remember. When I was in junior high in late 60's we would run down to Krekels and for a dollar you could get a double cheeseburger, fries, and a drink. I think there are 4 Krekels in Decatur, 1 in Mt Zion, and they have them in Springfield. They have absolutely the best burgers. They also have a high quality custard and their shakes are to die for. You want a burger and a shake go to Krekels for the best in town.

Krekel's is always a favorite with my family. Always hot and fresh. Best burgers in central Illinois! Good ice cream too :)

We had double cheeseburgers fries, one strawberry shake and one Oreo custard. Everything was awesome. Restaurant was very clean. Located at Woodford and Mound.

Krekel's is a Decatur, IL icon! Everyone I know who comes back for a visit has to get a burger here! The best made to order double cheese burger you will ever eat!

All in the Decatur area are familiar with the several Krekel's locations. I frequent this one as the closest to my home. It does not offer indoor seating, but does give prompt service. I often pick a burger and shake to eat while driving elsewhere or to take back home.
