1: Minnetonka Drive In | 4658 Shoreline Dr., Spring Park

Started by the Bennyhoff family in 1961, this classic retro design landmark has everything you want in a drive-in diner. Order up housemade root beer, a double-stacked Minnetonka Twin burger, or maybe a bucket of chicken to pass around the car.


2: Peppermint Twist | 115 Babcock Blvd, Delano, MN

You can’t miss this hot-pink drive-in decked in teddy bears and candy peppermint swirls just as the name says. In addition to tasty burgers, regulars love the onion rings and the raspberry shakes. Bring cash.


3: Taylors Falls Drive-In | 572 Bench St, Taylors Falls, MN

For the past 60+ years, this retro diner has showcased the best our local farms can offer. This is the perfect stop after visiting the state parks nearby. You won’t want to miss the root beer floats and the malts.


4: Wagner’s Drive-In | 7000 W Broadway Ave, Brooklyn Park, MN

This veteran and family-operated drive-in is not fancy but that’s how you like it. They serve up tasty burgers, homemade coleslaw, and hand-breaded chicken. Don’t leave without a milkshake!
