Theo's Drive-In, Grand Prairie, Texas On the main drag in Grand Prairie - Hwy 80 to map makers - sits a pristine example of the not so distant past. Theo's Diner, opened in 1958 and continuously operated since then, is a jewel among the ever-vanishing eateries of the space age.
Not much parking at the Dairyland, but plenty of out door seating is available at this drive-in turned BBQ join. The beautiful pane windows are very space-age in their design. Notice the turquoise, once again! (I visited when the restaurant was closed, so I was not able to ascertain its deliciousness).
JT's BBQ is located on the south side of town along E Street, aka US 183. Nearby is the awesome town of Roosevelt.
Watson's Drive-In, Denison, Texas
By far one of my favorite places in one my favorite towns, Watson's has been serving up juicy burgers and shakes for almost 70 years. It was once conveniently located across the street from the Denison high school, but a new school was built and the old one (a true beauty!) was torn down. Check out the... turquoise!
