Mearle's Drive-In in Visalia, California. This much loved Visalia landmark opened in the early 1940s as 'Tad's Drive-in'. It was known for fantastic food and happy roller skating car hops. But most of all that memorable neon sign flashing in the night sky was the drawing card to eat. In 1961 the business was sold to Mearle Heitzman, hence forth the name 'Mearle's Drive-In'.
