If you are visiting Akron, you need to try Swenson's. Old school drive-in with car hops providing excellent service. Who knows, if you visit the far west Akron location in Montrose, you may run into Lebron James.

Throwback concept in dining. Eating in your car with carhops. We had burgers, onion rings and shakes. The best peanut butter shake around.

This is one of my top hamburgers places to go too. I love their hamburgers (as does the rest of my family and my husband's family). The service is always very good and friendly. I just wish they would build one here in Annapolis, Maryland.

This is nostalgic place to eat. Yes it's burgers and fired food.

If you ever wondered what cool casual dining was like a few decades ago this is it.

Chill and enjoy some good food fast not nasty fast food.

I Made a pit stop and slowed down for a few minutes. This was very enjoyable and relaxing.
