Drive Ins & Carhops

HillJ | Jan 30, 2013 05:04 PM

While we’re feeling a bit nostalgic over at the diner thread I was equally curious to hear about your drive in and/or carhop dining experience! And, if this includes movie theaters and unusual setting that serve food, please share that too!
While Stewart’s is most certainly synonymous with drive in’s and car hop service and the first place I experienced an icy cold root beer soda (and quickly learned that carbonated drinks give me the hiccups) I’ve also been to sub shops and recently food trucks with car hop service, roller skating waitresses at movie theaters, decked out roller blade servers in NYC, even had a pizza delivered in Venice, CA by skate board to my beach chair.

So what drive in/carhop experiences have you enjoyed? When was the last time you went to a drive in? Seasonal as they might be in certain parts of the country, I hope they are still around in 10 years. And, for our global CH’s what say you of such dining pleasures in your parts?
