Swenson's Drive-in

Maybe it’s the fact that Swenson’s Drive-Ins are situated a wee bit out of reach for most of us burger lovers to make regular pilgrimages. Absence, as they say, makes the cholesterol-hardened heart grow fonder. Like a distant lover, we pine for the warm embrace of a Galley Boy, a double-decker sandwich that always hits the spot. Despite its twin-patty construction, the GB is the ideal size and heft when it comes to a car-friendly meal — neither too wimpy nor too grand, with just the right ratio of cheese and special sauces. The other All-Star from Akron, the Swenson’s hamburger is now into its eighth decade as the undisputed champ of the drive-in.
