These 5 Arizona Drive-In Restaurants Are Fun For An Old Fashioned Night Out
Between the neon signs, classic cars always parked outside, and good old fashioned American food, drive-ins take us back to some of our most cherished childhood memories. Luckily, quite a few of these vintage eateries still exist throughout the Grand Canyon State, and they’re perfect for times when you want a side order of nostalgia with your burger and fries.
1. RD's Drive-In (Page)
This long-standing, family-owned joint has been filling the stomachs of weary travelers for decades. Chili-cheese fries, burgers, and all the other usual suspects are served quickly without sacrificing flavor or quality. You'll find the restaurant at 143 S Lake Powell Blvd., Page, AZ 86040.
2. Screamer's Drive In (Wickenburg)
With classic cars parked out front and '50s-style architecture, one look at Screamer's will have you feeling nostalgic. Customers claim their green chile burgers are the best in the country. Try one for yourself at 1151 W Wickenburg Way, Wickenburg, AZ 85390.
3. Mr. G Drive-In (Yuma)
Mexican drive-ins are few and far between, so Mr. G's is a true gem. It's been open since 1962, dishing out tacos, burritos, and breakfast to hungry Arizonans ever since. Your taste buds will have a fiesta at 501 S 4th Ave., Yuma, AZ 85364.
4. Mr. D'z Route 66 Diner (Kingman)
Easily the most stereotypical spot on this list, Mr. D's defines what a Route 66 diner is supposed to look like. Inside, you'll find checked floors, vinyl booths, and a jukebox playing classic tunes. Drop in at 105 E Andy Devine Ave., Kingman, AZ 86401 and treat yourself to a juicy burger and glass of homemade caramel root beer.
5. Pat's Chili Dogs (Tucson)
Most drive-ins are known for burgers and shakes, but chili dogs are the main attraction here at Pat's. Smothered in either regular or spicy chili, the links have acquired a cult-like following in Tucson and surrounding areas. Join the club at 1202 W Niagara St., Tucson, AZ 85745.
