Drive-in Eateries Central California


Sno-white Drive-in (Removed)

The Sno-White Drive-in eatery still features an interesting roadside sign off the 99. This sign looks like it may have had sisters and brothers as there's a very similar sign for a Sno-White Drive-in located in Riverbank.


UPDATE 12/08 : The Sno-White Drive-in marquee has been removed and replaced by this tall plain sign. It also appears that there was a small change in the spelling of the business name from "Sno-white: to "Snow White".

The design of the building and patio area remain the same, even as the old faded out sign in the back slowly fades away to illegibility. 12-08

Check out Angelo's Drive-in in Fresno, CA. Angelo's first opened its doors in 1954. This drive-in eatery features the old time drive-up parking, and the marquee atop the roof will catch the eye of any hungry travelers passing through this area of town. 02-06

UPDATE 09/17 : Angelo's Drive-in shut-down after 60 years in business in April 2014. This burger joint was a victim of California's high-speed rail initiative that forced the closure and demolition of property along the old 99 highway in many places.The property was leveled and became a dirt lot. 09-17
