Drive-In Service



As a kid, I remember my parents driving to a fast food restaurant, park, and a waiter would come out to take our order without us ever having to leave our car. When the order came, it would hang over the side of the window just like in the picture.

I miss the uniqueness of the drive-ins and unfortunately, times have changed and most of these are in our memories as opposed to reality.

Does one still exist in your town? Or, do you know of an restaurant that has a unique way of serving its customers?

Drive-in service is still available over here, though not very popular.

Adrian: You got it! Beer coming up!

Happy Hippo: I know. I wished good tasting food was good for you.

Rainfield61: Really? Maybe that's why all of them went away here too. :(

I remember it well and very much enjoyed drive-ins. We had a couple in the city and in Daly City though I don't know of any around any longer. I miss those days.

Sonic Burger! But the closest Sonic in my neck of the Jersey woods is still quite a drive. I love how some of the servers bring your food in rollerskates!

We have one in our town, not the best part of town however. They serve great food though they gave up serving it on roller skates years ago.

Yes, I was going to say Sonic's too. We have one in Roseville that serves pretty good food and the servers bring the meals on roller skates.
