I always look for drive-in's when I visit coastal areas for sentimental reasons, and because that is where the locals eat. I saw this place the day before when it was closed and told my family I wanted to eat there tomorrow. We had some errands to run and we showed up at about 1:30 which should have been on the down side of lunch hour....to find the parking lot totally full. There are no assigned parking spaces, you kind of find your own. There are car hops and ours was fast and friendly.
I ordered the fried oyster dinner, hubby got the shrimp dinner, and my mother ordered just oysters. When it arrived it was a pile of food. There were at least 20 fried oysters, fries, and at least 6 hush puppies. We ate about half and took the rest home. We made two meals out of this one visit.
The oysters were fried to perfection, yummy!!! I can't wait to visit Morehead again and eat at El's
