Retro-outfitted servers deliver burgers, malts and sandwiches to your car at this '50s-style drive-in chain. – In Short
Founded in 1953 as a hamburger-and-root-beer stand, this nostalgic eatery is known for its intercom ordering system and roller-skating carhops. While servers rarely roller skate anymore, the famous made-to-order, all-beef burgers and thick malts are still menu favorites. Other signature items include Toaster sandwiches (made with thick Texas toast), extra-long chili and cheese hot dogs and hand-battered onion rings and tater tots. Desserts include chocolate, vanilla and strawberry shakes and fresh fruit slushes.
Nothing can make up for the horrible wait time – The best I can say about this location is the relialability of the order. The wait time is out of control. I waited at the drivethru on a Friday night for 10 minutes before there was even a hint of assistance. This was after I waited at the car driveup for 5 minutes and noticed the sign that said that that orders were taken at the drivethru after 9pm. This however turned out to be in effect only on weekdays or when an onsite police presences was not available. Of course you were supposed to get with Ms Cleo to know these little tidbits. I won't be back, but will go to the Dairy Queen next door where you can at least see and be seen by the order takers who ask you to wait instead of ignoring you totally and hiding behind a speaker and closed doors.
