If you love a great drive-in movie, the authentic diner adds to the experience. If you love an authentic country diner, the drive-in movie adds to the experience. If you love both, as I do, you have the perfect evening. And the movie was a double feature of first-run hits, both of which were on my must-see list.
Drive-in: Great policy prevents larger SUV's, minivans, and even larger crossover vehicles from the front two rows. Each row is raised a bit in a hump fashion, enabling both theater-style viewing over anyone in front of you and an ability to angle your car upward or downward depending upon personal preference. There was no line to get into or out of the drive-in. I could wish the popcorn was a less salty, but otherwise a perfect movie experience.
Diner: Everything you expect from an authentic country diner. I had a bacon cheeseburger and onion rings. My wife had an open-faced turkey/gravy sandwich with pole beans. I should confess to my milkshake also - not exactly a health food experience, although the menu was quite extensive and included healthy options as well. None of the food items was the best I've ever had, but all items were first-rate quality, tasty, and satisfying. Overall a perfect diner experience.
