5 Drive-In Restaurants in Colorado to Hit This Summer
(That aren't Sonic, and would likely be Fieri-approved.) While most of these nostalgic food joints* are destinations, perfect for a summer road trip, there's one that is close to home. *Bonus if they have roller skating car hops.
J.B.'s Drive In - Greeley
It's not just great for Instagrams, there's a lot of history there, too. J.B's originally opened in 1937 as a small sandwich shop on 25th Street and 8th Avenue. The drive in had to close for a year during WWII when there was no meat or sugar, but reopened in 1944 and has been serving since.
Cy's Drive In - Colorado Springs
If you find yourself farther south on I-25, there's Cy's. It's been open since 1953, and it still looks like it's 1953 inside. It also only has eight booths... so good thing it's a drive in.
Lee's BBQ - Trinidad
The other drive in you'll find on the south side shakes it up (beyond burgers and shakes). Car-side BBQ delivery is what you'll get at Lee's BBQ in Trinidad.
Vicco's Charcoalburger Drive-In - Glenwood Springs
If your summer vacay leads you up I-70, you can stop for a bite at Vicco's in Glenwood Springs, open since 1953.
