We enjoyed a multigenerational visit to the Charcoal Corral with "kids" aged 6 to over 80. The family-owned business is a sprawling compound featuring multiple food venues (pizza, Tex-Mex, Italian, sub-sandwiches, seafood, salad bar and seemingly anything one could possibly want).

This is not just a Drive in Movie, but a grill, a playground, at miniature golf course, a ice cream parlor, a pizzeria, and on and on. Worth the drive from anywhere, you won't be disappointed. Prices are reasonable too!
