Speaking of Martin Drive-In

Depends on the appetizer :)
Folks, back in the 50's, I think the only "real" restaurant in town was a place called the Trio on 41.
I remember what a treat it was when my dad took the family there on special occasions.
More fun than that was pigging out at Athertons after school, then Varners on weekends of course, and let's not forget the Strand Drive in where I was NOT allowed to go, but ....
G has not lived in Marietta for many years. Instead of Strand Drive-In Theater it was Martin Drive-In Theater. But they were both owned by the Martin family. I can see how that could easily be confused.
When Jackie and I looked at the above picture of Martin Drive-In Jackie said something like , "Just think of the number of the beginnings of the next generation that were conceived there."
Martin Drive-In was about where New London Square Shopping Center and Williamson Brothers Barbecue are now.
