During spring and summer, roller-skating servers slip past cars parked outside of Arnold's Drive-In, steeped in nostalgia. And year round, Chefs prepare each order individually, decking plates with classic steak burgers and other favorites from a time when Eisenhower was more than just a curse word adults used when they stubbed their toes. Owner Lori Collier also presides over treats such as breaded pork tenderloin, chili cheddar fries, and a battered and deep-fried version of Elvis? favorite peanut butter and banana sandwich. The sizzling oil also seals creaminess into deep-fried cherry cheesecake, served a la mode. Blenders purr through 40 flavors of shakes, and couples hunch over turtle sundaes with caramel, fudge, and pecans, basking in the glow of neon lights. The colorful glow dances across a hot rod painted with flames and walls covered in souvenirs and black and white photos.

The grills in Billy’s Downtown Zulu’s kitchen crackle and hiss as meats, seafood, and vegetables are prepared for the restaurant’s Mexican and American dishes. Chefs whip up house-made tortilla chips, salsa, and guacamole for an array of taco, fajita, enchilada, and burrito plates, and American--style dinners are crafted by carving up T-bone steaks or hand-sculpting ground-beef burger patties into the likenesses of respected Revolutionary War generals. As servers tote steaming dishes to tables, bartenders dole out specialty margaritas and beers by the glass and pitcher.
