      A & W Driveins. These were our "drive thru's". You could still go inside and order and turn on the juke box for music. l950-60's. Fun era to live in. :) Rootbeer floats the best. I can taste the hamburgers right now also!!!! with onion!!!

      I remember going to the A&W for a Baby Burger and Root Beer Float in the 70's....rolling around in the back of the station wagon with my brother & sister. Sometimes Mom would get Dad to buy a jug of Root Beer to take home. We'd chug it right from the bottle. Good Times!!

      At the Drive-In by Dusty_73, via Flickr Carhops took your order at your car then brought it to you on a tray like this that hung on your car window. I LOVED these. Those were the days... sigh... and those A Root Beer Floats!
