These 11 Texas 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 Lone Star State, and they’re perfect for times when you want a side order of nostalgia with your burger and fries.
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/

Texas also has plenty of drive-in movie theatres that are still alive + well! Check them out here and catch a flick after eating at one of these places for a date night straight out of the 50’s.
