Car Hop Drive-ins in SoCal?

BrookeN | Aug 2, 2007 09:05 AM

Anyone remember Bob's Big Boy in Toluca Lake or over on Colorado Blvd in Glendale, Tiny Naylor's at Sunset & La Brea, Dolores on Wilshire (and also way out west in West LA) and so forth. I grew up in Vancouver (eh?) where The White Spot at Park Royal was "it" for drive-ins. I can still remember sloppy Triple O Cheeseburgers at the White Spot in the 60's, so moving to Los Angeles in 1970 was coming to the Mecca for drive ins.

So where are they now? Other than Bob's in Toluca Lake (car hop service weekends only) and the prospect of the southern chain Sonic opening a gazillion branches in SoCal (they seem to be in every little hamlet in the South), do Chowhounds know of any remaining car hop service drive ins in Southern California?
