Long Description:
This Schlits sign is on the front of the Riviera Restaurant.

The Riviera Restaurant and Tavern was built in 1928 by moving two buildings from Gardner and South Wilmington and put them together to form the Riviera structure as it stands today.

The Riviera is a true roadhouse!

Once movie legends Gene Kelly and Tom Mix regularly stopped here. This was a favorite hangout of Al Capone too. Slot machines and booze were offered to the discrete customer during prohibition.
