The Very First Drive-Thru Restaurant In Missouri Still Has Cars Lining Up Around The Corner

Strolling down Memory Lane to the good ol’ days really doesn’t require all that much effort sometimes. For a taste of yesteryear, for example, we only need to pull into the drive-thru lane of Red’s Giant Hamburg in Missouri, the very first drive-thru restaurant in the state and, if history is correct, in the world. However, before you head over to the old school restaurant, work up a hearty appetite.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here:
