The carhops at Frisco’s wear roller skates and the girls wear pink skirts, very reminiscent of the ’50s. They also deliver your food with a song and dance! How fun does that sound? They are known for using parmesan sourdough bread instead of buns for their burgers, too.

Mac’s Drive-In has been open every summer since 1961. One of their fan favorites is their fresh cut French fries and Richardson’s beer which they pour from a mini-keg on the front counter.

There is a twist at the Peppermint Twist and it includes a teddy bear-themed playground! The location is also painted hot pink because they wanted to stand out against Hardee’s. The food continues to win awards in Minnesota.

18. Bill’s Hot Dog Stand in Ypsilanti, Michigan

Bill’s is known for its chili dogs and their old fashioned way of taking orders. Carhops go to your car to take your order and tell the cook your order with hand signals. Sounds pretty unique, right?

19. Corral Drive-In in Guymon, Oklahoma

This place is actually a movie theater and restaurant! They have pizza, calzones, Philly cheesesteaks, hot dogs, nachos, chili cheese fries and more! We wish there were more drive-in movie theaters still around.
