The Vermont A&W Drive-In is the state’s last surviving carhop. Located on Route 7 south of Middlebury, this 1960s roadside spot is open only during the summer months.
Last weekend I stopped by the A&W and ordered a cheeseburger, fries and root beer float. I had been driving for a couple of hours and was tired of being in the car, so I opted to dine at one of the drive-in’s picnic tables instead.
Maybe a burger and fries don’t add up to be the healthiest meal, but the food was tasty and the view of the mountains was perfect.
