This episode was a long time in the making as I waited all Winter and for the grand opening of the season to shoot this video with my sidekick Will Spurrier. Eddie’s Drive-In.
Eddie’s Drive-In owner Sharyl Collins’s idea was to have me on roller skates for an afternoon. Let’s film an episode of, Hey Screamin’ Try This! I came prepared with my Eddie’s Drive-in t-shirt and slacks. My worn-torn Riedell roller skates are the same skates I used in the 80s. The best part is after 3 hours of work I retired with a couple of screamin burgers for Will Spurrier and myself. My special thanks to Sharyl Collins and the staff on such a beautiful day. And be a part of Eddie’s Drive-In crew even for just a few fun hours. Enjoy Hey Screamin Try This Episode With Macomb County Famous Eddies Drive-In
The idea of Eddie’s Drive-In is a ’50s car hop restaurant by the original Eddie & Mary Catherin in 1987. It’s a family place to take the kids for an ice cream treat. There is even real roller skating car hop waitresses who roll up to your window to take your order. Fast forward as Sharyl Collins took control in 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 Drive-In’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,” 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.
