Benjamin Franklin invented the drive in so he would have a place to take dates picked up in his other invention, the 1958 Chevy Corvette. Celebrate the good doctor's memory with today's Groupon: for $5, you get $10 worth of tenderloin, draft root beer, and more at Edward's Drive-In.
Showcasing a throwback '50s motif, homemade draft root beer dripping with sugary goodness, and a menu straight out of Americana, Edwards Drive-In was recently featured on the Travel Channel's Man vs. Food. Jilt commitments to tasteless cuisine in favor of a grilled chicken sandwich ($4.59), flanked by a side of old-school, commie-hating onion rings ($1.69). The 1/4-pound cheeseburger ($2.59) relieves stomachs on a quest for carnivorous sustenance, while Edwards' chili warms frigid palates with sizes ranging from a cup to a gallon ($2.49–$22). Edwards Drive-In's root-beer floats ($1.79–$2.99) defy precise categorization as a solid or liquid, incorporating draft root beer made fresh on-site and ice cream scooped straight from an ice cow.
- Edwards Drive-In is a fun place to go for a quick bite to eat if you aren't looking for health food. Edwards is greasy and delicious! – Carey D., Yelp, 10/5/08
- Nostalgia mixed with great food! You won’t want to miss stopping at Edward’s Drive-In. This family owned restaurant is a blast from the past, still using curbside service or choose inside dining during the winter. – kurly1681, TripAdvisor
