Parkette Drive-In

The Parkette has closed for good. It is still standing as of August 23, 2022, but it is definitely out of operation.

The eatery may be closed, but its unique neon sign is still there -- at least for now.

Parkette Drive In.

Parkette Drive-In

Old School drive-in for burgers, fries, onion rings. Opened in the 1950s, then closed, remodeled, and reopened in 2008. Jukebox plays oldies and the food is delicious.
