These 10 Retro Drive-In Restaurants in Nebraska Will Remind You Of The Good Old Days
The drive-in restaurant was a staple in every small town in previous decades. Today we tend to favor more modern eateries, but there are plenty of the old-school holdouts (and recent newcomers) still delighting hungry customers across the state. We aren’t talking about Sonic – we’re talking about good, old-fashioned, locally-owned Nebraska restaurants.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
The drive-in restaurant model has been updated for modern customers, but if anything has stayed the same, it’s the down-home cooking and friendly atmosphere. We love pulling up to any of these places and knowing we’re in for a great treat.
