54 Diner Osage Beach, Missouri. One of the last times I went to the Ozarks on a trip with my family, we discovered the 54 Diner in Osage Beach. I thought it was so cool. It had the checkered floor, records on the wall and the waitresses even wore the poodle skirts. It's one of my favorite memories from the lake. My younger brothers were amazed at the 54 Chevy front end that hung off the front of the building!

Car hops at the world’s largest drive-in (including a young Nipsy Russell) have been greeting customers at their car windows with “What’ll ya have?” since 1928. The Varsity is pure 20th-century Americana, and the menu remains classic drive-in, not straying far from burgers, dogs, fries, colas and shakes, and their famous fried pies.
