The Drive-In

Formerly named 301 Drive-In, this newly renovated restaurant in downtown Florence has been serving some of the best hot dogs, burgers and shakes since 1957. Though the 50s-style restaurant now flaunts its modern architecture, the outside curb station still exists. Diners will also find other nostalgic items like framed newspaper articles about the restaurant, photos (including images of the original owners) and red and black checkered floors. Co-owner Pauline Kremydas says the articles and pictures "bring back a lot of memories for our customers who used to restaurant hop."

The Drive-In is said to have the best fried chicken in the Pee Dee. We'll let you be the judge. Stop by and order a chicken snack or dinner and try it for yourself. One thing The Drive-in has now that wasn't around in the 50s is Wi-Fi. Bring your laptop and enjoy a smooth, cool milkshake for lunch. Next time you're in Florence for an exciting event at the Florence Civic Center, coming to enjoy a festival, visiting the Florence Museum or on your way to Myrtle Beach add The Drive-In to your list of places to visit. You're in for a good ol' fashion nostalgic treat.
