Stan's Drive In. Chicago Illinois. June 2008.

Part of the unique charm and appeal for those who grew up on the south and southwest side of Chicago many years ago....were the number of little Mom and Pop owned neighborhood fast food eateries at any given street corner.

I took this photo back in June of 2008.
Seen here at the southwest corner of South Archer Avenue and Locke Street in Chicago's Bridgeport neighborhood, is a little bitty neighborhood establishment known as Stan's Drive In.

Judging by the architecture, this once many have been one of those 1920's era early gasoline filling stations.

Prior to the arrival of the mega fast food giant chain establishments like Burger King, Wendy's and Mc Donald's...Chicago's many neighborhoods once had several of these little Mom and Pop owned take out food stands.
