Akron, OH Edition: Swensons Drive-In

Recently, I made the long trek to Cuyahoga Valley National Park to mark another national park off my list.

And while driving back, I was starving so I stopped the local drive-in: Swensons Drive-In.

Stensons

"It's a "regional fast food restaurant chain with locations throughout Greater Akron and Greater Columbus, Ohio. Swensons' signature hamburger is the Galley Boy, a double cheeseburger prepared using two sauces,[1][2] and the restaurant also purveys 18 different milk shakes" (wikipedia)"

After I pulled into a space, a server ran out and put a card on my car to claim me. And I looked over the menu. I ordered the Galley Boy, as well as a grape milkshake (because I've never seen a grape milkshake before?!) and potato teezers.

Initially, I said I'd be staying there to eat so they brought a tray to my car. But then I was annoying because the sun moved and was shining directly into my face so I took my stuff to go.

The burger was topped with an olive, which was fun. And, it really is a damn good burger. It seems like one of the secret sauces is a BBQ, and the other is a mayo or tartar. But all combined, it's a helluva burger.

Grape milkshakes are delicious and should be everywhere.

And potato teezers are like a cheesy hashbrown with some mild jalapeno and all delicious.
