Lou's Drive-In

Beautiful spring weather is out in full force, which made it a perfect time for us to visit Lou's Drive-In late last week, since it's open for the season.
I've been going to Lou's since probably 1988 or so, and it's always a fun time. Considering they've been around since 1953, they've gotta be doing something right.
After 5 p.m. and all day on weekends, carhops offer curbside service for your auto-dining pleasure.
There are lots of great baskets to choose from, like the tenderloin, cheeseburger and BBQ sandwiches (including fries and a drink). Or, go with a hot dog or even skip the basket, it's all good. Heck, Lou's even has Boca burger baskets!
I typically get a cheeseburger with pickles and mustard. A lot of people I visit Lou's with like to order the homemade root beer, but it's not really my thing. A good iced tea hits the spot for me.
In the fall, the bees go crazy for the root beer, but I've found them to be harmless.
On Friday when we visited Lou's, it was a non-stop rotation of people trying to get a seat at one of the tables, for well over an hour.
It's great to see this longstanding tradition doing so well.

The better half LOVES Lou's Root Beer. He actually bought a quart to-go container when we were there last week. I, on the other hand, do not care for root beer and ALWAYS get their Iced Tea....*smiles*
