The Frosted Mug Drive In Restaurant. (Closed) Alsip Illinois USA. Early September 2006.
Welcome aboard Eddie's Railfan Page.
A favorite and interesting sideline to My transportation interests, were the once popular roadside drive in restaurants from the 1950's and 60's Babyboomer era.
The Frosted Mug Drive In shown here, was located at West 116th Street and South Pulaski Road in south suburban Alsip Illinois. From 1985 until it closed in late 2007, I would occasionally stop in for some good fast food, homemade Root Beer and some memorable good times. On Tuesday and Saturday nights, The Frosted Mug would have car shows like the one shown here. I hope that the Frosted Mug eventually reopens as a roadside drive in restaurant again with car hop service like it was.
The Greater Chicagoland Area once had several of these roadside drive in restaurants.
Unfortunately....most of them were gone by 1975. West suburban Berwyn Illinois once had several on Ogden Avenue.
