Do You Remember?

A NOSTALGIC CRUISE THRU ROCHESTER'S 1950's DRIVE-INS AND FAST FOOD PLACES

...Here's the article about local drive-ins originally written for the Post Bulletin by Harley Flathers...then edited with your additions and comments...

Americans fell in love with root beer and burger drive-ins in the 1950s.

Drive-ins were a perfect, popular spot for teens after a movie or sporting event. It was before we became acquainted with Burger King, Wendy’s, McDonalds and other names.

My 1950s radio broadcasting started in Red Wing, where you could come out of the Chief Theatre and a few feet to your left was Ernie Swanson’s A&W Root Beer Stand with lots of parking. Smiling girls “car-hopped” your orders. In Goodhue for a brief time right on Minnesota Highway 58 stood “Mae’s Drive-Inn.” She was a sweet lady. I never knew her last name.

In Cannon Falls long before the four-lane U.S. 52 skirted the city, we stopped at the Dairy Bar for ice cream on a stick. (Editor's note - I remember the truck stop at Cannon Falls called "Windy Acres". The soda machine there sold Cream Soda. Easy to remember that.) It was always “the” place to stop for busloads of kids heading to the Twin Cities for spring break. And in the mid-1950s, Zumbrota opened a Dairy Queen.

Rochester’s earliest drive-in was likely LeRoy Spratte’s Dairy Queen at North Broadway and Sixth Street dating back to 1947. Oh, the memories created there after fireworks at Silver Lake Park on July 4. I believe today the fourth Spratte family generation operates this favorite spot. A half block south was Drake’s Lunch Wagon.

Think of the many young folks who got their first job at a drive-in.

So it was at Bennie’s R-Tic on Sixth Street Southwest at First Avenue.
On the west side of the now vacant KTTC-TV building was the Colonial Park drive-in. Jerry Campbell, a Korean War veteran, remembers serving several restaurants with bread and buns from the Continental Baking Co., bakers of Wonder Bread. He delivered to Ben and Eloise Dresbach at the R-Tic drive-in and to Bob and Elaine DeLisle at the Colonial Park. Jerry said these customers became great friends. Remember the R-Tic’s famous Mexi-burgers? And Bennie sold Christmas trees there in December.

When King Leo’s opened on North Broadway, Jerry supplied owner Leon Latz with bakery products, also serving Henry’s drive-in on Fifth Street Northwest (Civic Center Drive today) across from today's Barlow Plaza. Henry’s lasted into the mid-70's. Jerry delivered to the first Burger King at 11th Avenue and Seventh Street Northwest.

Some of you remember Colonial Park ice cream, manufactured in the south end of the Colonial Park Drive-Inn building by Clarence “Hub” Hubbard. That ice cream went to the Colonial ice cream store on First Avenue Southwest downtown, on the north side of the Weber & Judd drug store.

The late Vince Majerus managed Leonardo’s in Winona at age 19 and then came to Rochester in the early 1950s to manage both Colonial Park and the ice cream store before opening the Big Boy Drive-In.

Big Boy was on Second Street Southwest at 20th Avenue. Today that’s the Masonic Lodge parking lot. Their Big Boy burger was much like today’s Big Mac or Whopper Jr. Vince and his boys also created the “Flying Saucer” — two pieces of bread filled with a mixture of loose hamburger, tomato sauce and onion. The edges were sealed and the bread toasted. A popular delicacy, indeed. I broadcast many commercials late night on KROC for the Big Boy from 1957 to 1960.

At U.S. 52 and Second Street Southwest was the Brandin’ Iron from 1957 to 1961 operated by the Everett Cords family. On North Broadway between 16th and 17th streets was Barry’s drive-in, a great late-night stop operated by Ambrose Barry. Today, it is a Cost Cutters.

Vince Majerus' Big Boy drive-in went from April 1, 1955, until 1961. The highway going to four lanes did away with the drive-ins in those locations. The original A&W on Fourth Street Southeast, now called Roscoe’s, dates back decades and today is a bustling, seasonal drive-in owned for 30 years by Steve and Barb Ross.

Spring Valley’s Roger and Marge Simpson started their A&W drive-in in 1956. Today it’s operated by the couple’s son and his wife, Mark and Kathy Simpson. Simpson’s A&W in Spring Valley was part of great summers with the outdoor theater in Spring Valley. Most of our once-popular drive-in theaters are history along with many of the “suds and dogs” drive-ins. Today, national chains seek out choice locations on busy highways to serve hungry traveling families.

....Here are the Memories sent in by classmates... Join in... ...Click the link at the end.

I was looking for a recipe for chili from Wade's Broiler Chili and ended up on the 64 JM page.
Q - You referred to an restaurant near Libby's... here's a cut & paste: " There was another drive in near Libby's at the corner of the Beltline (12th Street SE) and Broadway. It had a Scottish Plaid motif. Perhaps it was called Scottie's." A - It was called Sandy's... Can't think why I would remember that... =) Sandy Johnson

Q - Do you remember the drive in on Marion road about a mile past the Camp Kahler turn off? I think it sported a neon sign of a walking man on the roof.
A - It was named "Meadow Park something" ans sold root beer in mugs and now it is a radiator repair shop.

Ah yes, the "flying saucer". That was my choice when mom and dad loaded us up for a trip to the Big Boy. I think they also served a drink called a Green River.

Did you miss the 19th Hole on 2nd street? The girl friend of one of my buddies car hopped there. They had Rochester Root Beer - better than A&W....

Nice to remember all the old haunts of my youth. "Bennie's" (no one ever called it the "R Tic") was always the place to hang out. My folks had been taking me there since I could drink from a baby mug. A few years back at a class reunion, one of the classmates got the recipe for the MexiBurger and we had that for a meal. Brought back lots of good memories, much as Harley's columns often do. As for the Flying Saucers, we even had a device at home that was supposed to make the same thing. But they were never as good as from the drive thru.

If I remember right, Drake's Lunch Wagon was in the same lot as the Dairy Queen, just to the south.

No burger tasted even close to a Drake's. God they were good!! Same for Henry's. No burger tasted like those wonderful things. And the Onion Rings...foget about-it.

Q - Seems like I also remember an A&W over on the west side, by the highway not very far from 2nd st. SW.
A - There was a drive in on 2nd Street just west of St. Mary's. It was called "The Heidi House". It was owned by the Blondells who own the Blondell Motel at that location today. In the mid 60's the Blondells also owned the A&W drive in on 4th St SE, now called Roscoe's and owned by the Ross family.

I remember that if you weren't at Benny's then you would be at Carter's Country Kitchen. Near the Country Kitchen was Henry's. Could there have been a worse place with better onion rings.

There was a fast food restaurant that looked like an A-frame house on 11th Avenue NW about a block to the north of the Wonder Bread Bakery. I think it was called "Robbies" and that building became the Bachus Bar & Lounge and is now a Kwik Trip gas station.

There was another drive-in near Libby's at the corner of the Beltline (12th Street SE) and Broadway. It had a Scottish Plaid motif. Perhaps it was called Scottie's. Correction - It was named "Sandy's". it was demolished and a Hardee's was built on that location.

The Howard Johnson chain built a Restaurant where the Crossroad Lockers had been at the Crossroads Shopping Center. That building became another bar and restaurant with peanuut shells on the floor. I don't remember the name.

I remember the vending machine in the lobby of the Lawler Theater had Green River as a selection.

La Pizzeria on the corner of Fourth Street and Third Avenue Southeast (where the government center now stands). The pizza joint had charcoal-painted walls, red-checked tablecloths with Coke bottle candle holders “from which multi-colored wax dripped down the bottles."

I remember La Pizzeria at 604 N. Broadway. That would put it in the vicinity of where Land O’ Dreams is today. It later moved to the Fourth Street Southeast location.

There was a “...place north of Silver Lake that had good fried potatoes."

The fried-potato place had to have been Barry’s restaurant. Barry’s, owned by Ambrose Barry, was at 1600 N. Broadway. That’s the current address of Great Clips Salon at Silver Lake Shopping Center. "Barry’s restaurant was our place to go for late night lunches. We would even leave early from where we were at in order to get a place to sit."

Does anybody remember George's restaurant at the Silver Lake Shopping Center between the Ben Franklin and the Super Value food store? You could enter the restaurant through the front door as expected or you could enter from a doorway connected to the grocery store. I think that George was father to George, Ann and Gust Barbes.

Rochester eateries from 1950 to 1980 numbered around 225 business names.

Janet Stevenson recalls some of her favorite hangouts. She talked about Wades Broiler “on Second Street S.W. at Highway 52 where the oil change place is now." Then she remembers the Big Joy Drive-In on Second Street Southwest across from Tyrol Ski shop, the Arctic Drive-In downtown and the original Kentucky Fried Chicken restaurant owned by Vince Majerus at Silver Lake, where the dental office now stands.

Across Broadway from Mike's Lake Side Dive-In was the Frosty Top. It was like a Dairy Queen or it tried to be.

“When I was a teenager, our favorite pizza hang-out was Sammy’s on Broadway near Center Street ... maybe where the mosque is now. We could go in there and just order a soda and sit and talk for hours ... nobody minded ... if we could get enough money together with all our friends, we would order a pizza but it wasn’t necessary. A real nice teen hang out. Where do they go today?"

Bilotti's Italian Village is still operating in the same location, 304 1st Avenue SW.

JMHS is named for the longest serving Justice in Supreme Court history.

BIO OF JUSTICE JOHN MARSHALL


Chief Justice John Marshall was born on September 24, 1755 in Germantown, Virginia. He was the oldest of fifteen children. He lived in a rural, rustic area of Virginia on his parents’ farm. Marshall received very little formal education in his early years. However, after fighting in the Revolutionary War, he did attend William and Mary College in Virginia.

Marshall became a lawyer in 1781 and served in the Virginia Legislature. He was part of Virginia’s ratifying convention which adopted the Federal Constitution in 1788. Though President George Washington offered Marshall the position of Attorney General, he refused it. However, President John Adams appointed him Secretary of State in 1800.

Marshall became the fourth Chief Justice of the U.S. Supreme Court one year later. John Marshall was perhaps one of the most important figures in our country’s history.

In the Washington Post on September 26, 2005, columnist George Will called Marshall “the most important American never to have been president.” He established the Supreme Court’s power to declare laws unconstitutional. Also, he clarified the relationship between the states and the national government by allowing the court to override a state’s opinion.

Arguably, Marshall’s most important contribution was helping to establish the U.S. Constitution as a legal document, one that is interpreted by the Courts and not by Congress. An example of this is Marshall’s 1832 ruling in Worcester v. Georgia.

Congress had passed the “Indian Removal Act” and intended to remove the Cherokee from their land. When the Cherokee took their case to the Supreme Court, Marshall made the removal laws invalid by ruling that the Cherokee were a sovereign nation; they would have to agree to the removal by signing a treaty with the government. (Despite Marshall’s ruling, President Jackson still removed the Cherokee from their land without their consent, resulting in the “Trail of Tears.”)

After nearly 35 years as Chief Justice, Marshall died in 1835 at eighty years old. He died in Philadelphia. Quite poetically, to quote George Will again, “The Liberty Bell, while tolling his death, cracked. It has never rung since.”

After 250 years, the evidence of John Marshall’s influence on our country is great, so we should be proud to remember him by our school’s name.
