The Lemon Drop Drive-in in Anderson, IN is an old time drive-in eatery that still features roadside food.

The Lemon Drop features a couple of signs. The marquee in front is an old mid-century style that used to be quite popular back in the day. There's even a sign on top of the roof that befits the name. 07-08

This is the Clyde's Drive-in restaurant in Sault Ste Marie, MI. This Clyde's also features car hop service, a throw back to when this type of service was quite common. This Sault Ste Marie location is right on the St Mary's River and probably one of the few drive-ins where the customers back in. Backing in allows the outside diner to watch passing ships. 12-08
