El's Drive-In


Author(s):
Abstract:
Lee discusses El's Drive-In, a tiny mom-and-pop restaurant and an institution in Morehead City since 1954. The restaurant is small, being a mere 20-by-40 feet, and there are no talk-boxes to call in your order. Waitresses come out to the car just as they have done for fifty years. The business was founded by Elvin and Helen Franks and has made its mark on the city with its extra-thick superburgers and the famous shrimpburger.
