Theo's Drive-In, Grand Prairie, Texas
On the main drag in Grand Prairie - Hwy 80 to map makers - sits a pristine example of the not so distant past. Theo's Diner, opened in 1958
and continuously operated since then, is a jewel among the ever-vanishing eateries of the space age.

Theo's is located along the
Dixie-Overland/Bankhead Highway (Old US 80) in Grand Prairie, TX (2626 Main Street.)

JT's BBQ (formerly Dairyland Drive-In), Snyder, Oklahoma

Not much parking at the Dairyland, but plenty of out door seating is available at this drive-in turned BBQ join. The beautiful pane windows
are very space-age in their design. Notice the turquoise, once again! (I visited when the restaurant was closed, so I was not able to
ascertain its deliciousness).

JT's BBQ is located on the south side of town along E Street, aka US 183. Nearby is the awesome town of
Roosevelt.
Watson's Drive-In, Denison, Texas

By far one of my favorite places in one my favorite towns, Watson's has been serving up juicy burgers and shakes for almost 70 years. It
was once conveniently located across the street from the
Denison high school, but a new school was built and the old one (a true beauty!)
was torn down. Check out the... turquoise!

Watson's sits on the east side of Main Street in downtown Denison.
Denison is home to a LOT of railroad history.
More to come soon!
