I thought drive-ins were drive-ins but this one is a little more. Had lots of people come in as we sat there enjoying a cold drink! It is clean and easily accessible. We enjoyed our snack in thge middle of the afternoon.

Good service. Basic diner fare. Typical prices. Clean. I swear it looks like a place you'd see Jack Reacher in a booth hitching a ride to his next adventure!

Sorry, missed this question. The day after Mother's Day 2016. 2017 May 22nd will be the first day they are open.

Positive. The Cafe is called GTO. The Drive in is "after" the Shell station & museum up the road on your right. Small place colored orange.
