It is with heavy hearts that we announce that our longstanding Zesto Drive-In restaurant at 2469 Piedmont Road in Buckhead will be closing Sunday, September 18, 2022. This neighborhood landmark began by selling only ice cream in 1952. The original walk-up stand at the corner of Piedmont and Lindbergh later added burgers, chili dogs and fries, and was remodeled complete with curb service. It was remodeled again in the early 60s. It was relocated to its present home in 1971. It too has gone through a few incarnations, and has been featured in numerous tv shows, music videos and movies.
Although this property has been sold, our two other Zesto corporate locations in metro Atlanta remain alive and well, where customers will find the same ice cream treats, Chubby Deckers, “Footlong” Chili dogs and the unique Zesto Atlanta experience.
Your patronage, and our loyal employees and family members have kept Zesto going since my Dad brought Zesto to Atlanta in 1949! We raise a swirl cone to you all.
We look forward to celebrating our 75th anniversary in Atlanta in 2024.
