Drive-ins & Soda Shops

Get a retro refreshment! Drive-ins are a welcome throwback to another, simpler time. Satisfy that sweet tooth with a trip to a local soda shop for a treat with your sweetie.

Americas romance with drive-in restaurants can be traced to just after the turn of the 20th century, when the first documented takeout service took place at a drugstore in Memphis. The soda fountain was swamped with customers waiting for seats, so the owner allowed his gentlemen customers to take orders outside to their ladies waiting in carriages.
