The Nostalgic Eatery In Milwaukee That Will Take You Back In Time

Here in Milwaukee, we enjoy summer at full force! Getting out to the festivals, onto the lake, or sinking into a delicious frozen custard is a part of summer life in MKE. However, there’s one little gem on Layton that truly is a sign of summer. This drive-in offers the best burgers and ice cream (that’s right, not custard) around, and we wait for it to open all winter long. The season wouldn’t be complete without this nostalgic eatery, and that’s why we can’t get enough.

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:
