Shabbona Lake State Park is blessed to have the area’s most popular Café’. It is called Pokanoka’s Café, named after Chief Shabbona’s Wife. Pokanoka’s overlooks scenic Shabbona Lake with a magnificent view through very large glass windows. The 60 seat Café also has outdoor seating, with a decorative pergola, for an additional 40 diners. The famous Pokanoka Burger is only at Pokanoka’s. It is two perfectly seasoned never frozen hamburger patties, two slices of cheese, grilled onions, with BBQ sauce served on a toasted Kaiser bun.
