While it seems like a lifetime before we will be able to get outside and enjoy a meal in the sunshine, it's still fun to think of the possibilities. I drove by Roscoe's this morning and was immediately saddened. We won't be able to get our drive-in fix in Rochester any longer....

With that being said, here are the drive-ins I think need to come to Rochester.

    Sonic

    It would be a sin to start this list with anything but Sonic! How cool would it be to have a Sonic? Roller blades and all!

    Drive-In

    Franchise the Drive-In in Taylors Falls. If you haven't been there, you'll feel like you take a step back in time to the '50s -Poodle skirt-clad carhops bring orders of crinkle-cut fries, homemade root beer, and bison burgers.

    A&W

    Remember when A&W was a drive-in restaurant? If we are going to have a drive-in, why not make it a classic? A&W is one of the oldest established fast food joints in the U.S.

    A BBQ Place

    With Roscoe's closing up shop, it would be awesome to get a new outdoor BBQ place in town!
