The news you all have been waiting for is Eddie’s Drive-In Announce Grand Opening Day! Opening day will be Thursday, April 6th. With special hours and days for April. Open Thursdays through Sundays from 12 pm – 8 pm.
The idea of Eddie’s Drive-In is a ’50s car hop revival restaurant started by the original Eddie & Mary Catherin in 1987 when Eddie’s Drive-In became a real car hop with old-fashioned food. It’s a family place to take the kids for an ice cream treat. There are even real roller skating car hop waitresses who roll up to your window to take your order. Fast forward as Sharyl Collins took control and has run it since 2014 with some great surprises and themes set for this year’s season.
The menu is just what you remember a car hop would serve… hotdogs, corn dogs, fries, and a nice mug of root beer. Eddie’s signature dish is the “BIG Ed’s Burger “, 1/3 pound of ground round beef, lettuce, tomato, onion, and Eddie’s favorite sauce.
The “Screamin Burger,” was introduced 5 years ago when the owner, Sharyl Collins, asked me to design a signature burger. It’s a 1/3 pound of ground round beef, lettuce, tomato, cheese, bacon, thick onion rings, and the famous Ed sauce with some Sriracha hot sauce. The “Screamin Burger” is a hit every season!
Menu favorites include homemade Eddie’s Pizza, Grilled Cajun or Lemon Salmon Filet, BBQ Pulled Pork Sandwich, Old Fashioned Shakes & Malts, and an Old Fashioned Vernors Ice cream Cooler. Remind me to let Big Jim’s house know about Eddie’s Drive-In.
Sheryl Collins mentions that they will be open Easter Sunday where you even can get a Sundae on Sunday. Going to be a great Summer with one of my favorite places opening up again so I can stop for a bite. Who knows maybe you will see me on roller skates this year… I have new insurance. Hope to see you at Eddie’s Drive-In Announce Grand Opening Day!
