Loved those old Anchor Hocking barrel tumbler water glasses that were used by restaurants everywhere. However today if they were still used in curb service people would be taking them home instead of leaving them on the tray. They even went bye-bye in sit down restaurants by the mid 1960s. Last one's I recall seeing was in the student center snack bar at TCU around 1963.

There are still quite a number of dine in your car drive-in restaurants around. One good example is the SONIC chain. They seem to do a great job of competing with the likes of McDonald's, Burger King, and Jack in the Box. Then there are still quite a number of throw backs to the 1950s around in small towns around the country, when going to the drive-in burger joint was a social event for many teenagers. This one is an example and was Elvis Presley's favorite place when he was stationed at Ft. Hood Texas. Their web site is more or less horrible but take the time to watch the video, it's interesting. Then check out the individual locations.!

Hey Retired in TX.....are you calling yourself an old geezer? LOL BTW, McDonald's, Burger King, and Jack in the Box.....are all dine in your car restaurants.....LOL
