A Summer Place

Ardy and Eds has been in Oshkosh since 1948. It's an old fashioned 'Drive-In' that is only open in the Summer. 50's and 60's music plays outside... ah, memories!! The Car Hops wear roller skates and do a great job of staying up-right. When my girls were little they would ask if we could go to Ardy and Eds and "watch the Car Hops wipe out"... which does happen occasionally.




They serve great root beer in frosty mugs!

My friend GJ is eating a pizza burger. I had one also and it was tasty!
Great buns!

I ordered a diet root beer in a bottle. It was so darn good! It was also 90 degrees out.

We arrived in GJ's convertible... his Summer car. Perfect for eating at Drive-Ins,
but it was so hot we headed to an umbrella table for some shade. I love this photo of the underside of the umbrella.

So, if you're ever in Oshkosh...

Ardy & Ed’s looks like a wonderful place to go. I only know drive-in’s from movies!

Wow, thanks for the great tip Joni -- it looks like a really fun place to visit. I can't possibly imagine trying to deliver food on roller skates. Well, ok, these days, I can't imagine doing anything on roller skates LOL!

I've never heard of car hops and have no idea what root beer is.

The educational power of blogs...

I grew up in Kansas and Ohio and we had car hops, too. I wonder if any are left? Fun post, great photos, and your blog looks great! Good to see you again.

I'm sorry -- I have the sense of humor of a junior high boy.

"GREAT BUNS?!?!!" Bwaa haa haa!

I remember this place. It does take one back in time! I just finished The Testament. I couldn't believe we missed a Grisham book from back then. That is a great read! Hope things are well in your world!
