If there is anything even more gone than the old independently owned diners, it is the Drive-Ins. The Malt Shop above is reminiscent of many drive ins I can remember from my childhood. We had "Nita's". It served hamburgers, fries, milk shakes, malts, lime aids and all types of good things. There was no place to sit inside, and you drove up and ate in your car, or at outside picnic tables. I guess the Sonic chains are drive-ins, but really no at all the same.
