Carlson's Drive-In

 

Celebrating over 70 years, Carlson’s is still making root beer the old-fashioned way; creamy foam-topped root beer deliciously served in a tall frosty mug! Our carhops serve up 100% all-beef, bun-length hot dogs, the freshest ingredients and many homemade items, including homemade chili and BBQ pork, cooked to order the old-fashion way! Menu available online. Seasonal business: open daily at 10am, early Spring to early Fall.

Bubbles Old Fashioned Ice Cream Parlor and Pie Shoppe is across the street, serving their super-premium, hormone free ice cream.  They are already open for their 18th season,  7 days a week, noon to 9pm.
