This drive-in has been around for a long time. It is a local landmark. Soft ice cream is a great bargain. If you want a meal, the chili dogs are good classic fare.

As old and storied as Athens itself. The upside down banana split is to die for. Sit under the outside awning and catch up with locals or get it to go. You will not be dissapointed

If you haven't tried an upside down banana split, you have missed life. They are the best! So easy to eat with no mess. Delicious!
