Discover how Igor's Bistro in Rock Island, IL came to be

For 10 years, owner Rick Lopez and his wife Kathy searched the Quad Cities high and low for a spook-tacular restaurant space, to no avail. But in 2017, they found what looked like a haunted house under a gnarled oak tree at 3055 38th Street in Rock Island, IL. It was the perfect place for a Halloween-themed restaurant.

Igor's Bistro gained a cult following practically overnight due to the...

  • Made-from-scratch dishes named after famous monsters
  • Full-service bar and wide selection of hot and cold brews
  • Spooky Halloween d├ęcor that delights guests of all ages
  • Convenient drive-thru window and dog-friendly patio

Rick spent decades building kitchens, casinos and other projects as a member of the United Brotherhood of Carpenters & Joiners Local 166, but Igor's Bistro turned into a labor of love. "I want to do what makes me happy," he said about the restaurant, "and making people happy with food makes me happy."

Stay spooky, friends!
