Outdoor/drive-up eating

In hopes for some solidly sunny days in the weeks ahead, I'm wondering if the hounds can recommend their favorite outdoor stands/shacks/drive-up places. The example in my mind is the Dairy Joy in Weston -- a stand with soft-serve ice cream, burgers, fries, and fried seafood. I can't really comment on anything other than their burgers, which I like (but then I do prefer thin greasy patties -- these are NOT Bartley's or O'Sullivan-style burgers), and the fries, which are also good. They have no indoor seating, just picnic tables. It's great.

I'm looking for other places in that vein, preferably with savory foods of note (although good ice cream is always worth knowing about as well). Clams, goooood! Burgers, gooood! Hot dogs, extremely gooood! That sort of thing. Anywhere within 40-50 miles of Boston is great, extra clams for suggestions that are close to Richardson's in Middleton. (My real agenda here is to find a savory option before stopping at Richardson's for ice cream and batting cages.) Thanks in advance for any suggestions.
