Logan Edition: Parkway Drive In
I'm rounding the last corner on my trip to try all the drive-in restaurants in West Virginia. If you haven't been following along, West Virginia has just about a dozen drive-in restaurants left in the state.
Most of the remaining drive-ins are located in the southern part of the state. I've made my way to the Sterling Drive-In in Welch, the Pinnacle Drive-In in Pineville, the Tunnel Drive-In in Williamson, the King Tut Drive-In in Beckley, the Frostop Drive In in Huntington, Jim's Drive In in Lewisburg and Biggie's in Grafton (the last two have not yet posted at the time of writing this post). Just a few more to go!
Because there are three drive-in restaurants located right in Logan, I made the trip there to try all three of the restaurants during lunch. The first was a chicken sandwich at Janet's Park & Eat. The second? Parkway Drive In.
I have heard this group of restaurants, who all have the same owner but with individual recipes, have good cheeseburgers and hotdogs. So I went with a cheeseburger on this one ... and maybe a strawberry milkshake, too.
I'm told for cheeseburgers, they make a grilled cheese and open it up to add a burger patty. Did they do that for this one? I dunno. Kinda looks like a regular burger to me. BUT, it was a good one. Maybe it was because I got lettuce, onion and tomato on it? I'm not sure. But it really is quite tasty. The cheese oozed out and was perfectly melted.
Oh, and the strawberry milkshake ... I've decided strawberry milkshakes are on of life's greatest pleasures.
