A Carrington icon that provides good food. Very busy place, try and visit at off times. They will not answer the phone if busy.

This drive-in is a prominent landmark on the busy north-south Highway 281. It used to be an original, classic 1950s eating spot, and still has fairly decent fast food, and an original long, projecting canopy that sticks out from the building under which you can park your car, out of the rain and snow.
