Zesto Drive-In

The Moreland Avenue location in Atlanta was used when Earn wants to order a kid’s meal, but the power tripping manager won’t allow it. Instead, he gets a cup for water and fills it with soda. The Zesto Drive-In is known for its vintage-inspired atmosphere, selling everything from ice cream to hot dogs to the “Chubby Decker” burger. Named for the Zest-O-Mat ice cream machines, the restaurant has been in operation in the city since 1949. Five of the original locations still exist, like the Little Five Points outpost that opened in 1967.
